Demi Lovato: “It Is Very Unhealthy When Girls Devote All Of Their Time To a Guy”
Demi Lovato is so inspirational, and we're not just talking about her magnificent ever-changing eyebrows. This gal has more than opened up about her eating disorder, and continues to be a champion of healthy nutrition habits for teens.
"It's OK to love your body the way it is," she tells Cosmo on Campus (via E!), "and it's OK to reach out for help if you have drug and alcohol problems, or if you're self-harming or being bullied."
Demi was pretty young when she developed her eating disorder, and she's determine to help her teenage fans remain positive about their bodies. "That's my goal in talking about my problems," she says. "I want to be the person for other girls that I needed to admire when I was looking for help and strength."
Demi thinks teens can become insecure about their bodies by focusing on their dating lives. "It is very unhealthy when girls devote all of their time to a guy and forget their friends and family," she shares. "I did that. I was always looking for distractions because I was so afraid of being alone."
Nowadays Demi says she is "taking care of myself and not focusing on guys," and has been living in a sober house in order to keep her rehabilitation on track. It’s okay, guys, you’re not the only one sobbing and applauding toward your computer screens at what an inspiration this gal is.
