Demi Lovato Speaks About Her Painful Past & Amazing Recovery!
Demi Lovato has had a whirlwind year!
The pop singer, who famously went to rehab earlier this year, appears happy and vibrant in a bright yellow cut-out dress on the cover of the July issue of Cosmopolitan magazine (hits newsstands Tuesday, June 5th!)
The 19-year-old pop singer, who recently announced she would be joining “The X-Factor” as a judge (joining Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid) talked to the mag about her painful past and amazing recovery.
On being diagnosed with bipolar disorder: “I felt relieved when I found out. Like I’m not completely crazy; there’s a medical reason for all of it.” She continues: “It’s a daily thing; you don’t get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own.”
On the direction she’d like her personal life to go in: “I want to be married with kids in 10 years.”
On her dating qualifications: “I don’t have many deal breakers. I’ve done so much in my life, it doesn’t feel right to judge other people. Oh, I know one quality I won’t tolerate. I would never be with a guy who is controlling.”Read More
