Demi Lovato Opens Up About Her Time In Rehab: “I Wanted To Share My Story”

Teen Queen Demi Lovato is currently judging the upcoming season of The X Factor, but things weren't always so glamorous for this superstarlet. Demi went through a series of emotional struggles that famously landed her in rehab back in 2010 (she even dropped out of the Jonas Brothers Live In Concert World Tour!), but she's always been forthcoming with her fan-girls.

“I don’t think it does anybody any good to cover it up or lie,” she tells Hollywood Life at the GMA Summer Concert Series on July 6th. “The reason why I did it is, that’s what being a role model is all about. Not about being perfect, speaking about issues and inspiring others to get help. I wanted to make sure I shared my story — I can either help prevent them from going through the same things that I did or help them get help.”

Nowadays, Demi is better than ever, and she's having a blast judging The X Factor alongside Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid. Way to be a great role model, Demi! Excuse us while we go dye the tips of our blonde weave pink.
