Demi Lovato is Tired of Being Labelled as Bipolar: 'It's Not Who I Am'

Demi Lovato has been open about living with bipolar disorder, so much so that she was even honored with the Artistic Award of Courage at the Open Mind Gala back in March.

Still, she doesn’t like that the word is used so often to define her.

“I think when people refer to me as being bipolar, it’s something that’s true – I am bipolar – but I don’t like people to use it as a label,” the 24-year-old “Sorry Not Sorry” singer told Elvis Duran in an interview, “It’s something that I have, it’s not who I am.”

Still, she doesn’t plan to stop speaking out about having bipolar disorder anytime soon.

“The more people know about it, the more people are going to be able to find solutions to what they’re going through,” she continued, “I just happen to be in a position where more people would hear my voice than they would have 10-15 years ago, so I use my voice to do more than just sing.”

We applaud her for doing so.
