Demi Lovato: I Lost Most of My Friends After Rehab
Being a famous celebrity / perfect human specimen (aka Demi Lovato) ain't a walk in the park. Sure, fame comes with perks, but it’s also taught our favorite X Factor judge to learn to pick her friends carefully.
During a recent interview with the UK’s Company Magazine, Demi says she discovered who her legit friends were after going to rehab back in 2010.
"A couple of months before I went to rehab, I had a birthday party, and there were a couple of hundred people there. It was full of people who I considered my closest friends," Demi explains. "When I turned my phone on after being in rehab for three months, I expected lots of text messages and phone calls. I had four texts. That was a wake-up call."
Um, we sent Demi, like, a thousand texts. Then again, we were sending them to 1-800-PERFECTION, so they might have gotten lost in cyberspace....
Anyway, after completing rehab, Demi made sure to cultivate friendships with people who truly have her back. "I don't have loads of friends," she says. "I used to, but then I realized, do any of them actually care? Now I have people who, if I break my leg in the middle of the night, will come to the hospital with me. Or they'll answer the phone at 4 a.m. if I need them."
Basically, she's besties with Ross, Phoebe, Rachel, Monica and Chandler. They'll be there for her when the rain starts to fall!
