Demi Lovato gave an inside look at her past in the July 2016 issue of American Way magazine, available now.
The 23-year-old entertainer opened up about her struggles with body image, predicting her trip to rehab and her future children. Check it:
On her body issues starting as a toddler: “Even though I was 2 or 3 years old, being around [my mom] who was 80 pounds and had an active eating disorder…it’s hard not to grow up like that.”
On ending up in rehab likeBritney Spearsand Lindsay Lohan: “Making Camp Rock, I was definitely like, ‘Oh crap. In three years, that’s going to be me.’”
On thinking she was going to die young: “I lived fast and I was going to die young…I didn’t think I would make it to 21.”
On not letting her parents discipline her: “I’d say, ‘What are you going to do? I pay the bills!’ I put my parents in an uncomfortable position. There’s no manual on how to parent a pop star.”
On worrying about her future children’s mental health: “I’m nowhere near having children, but already I ask myself questions. My grandma had bulimia, my mom had it, I had it, and hopefully my kids won’t have it, but it’s kind of like addiction. It’s hereditary.”
“But why do people actually give a f**k what I say?? like if you don’t care the gtfo haha That one time I started my own charity providing mental health care for people who can’t afford it and this is what y’all talk about,” she posted.
Demi added, “And people wonder what’s wrong with the world. Pay more attention to good than bad.”
She also mentioned that she plans on staying on Snapchat, so fans can still keep up with her there!
Damn I gotta quit sayin shit. Bye Twitter ????????????????????
