The 21-year-old X Factor judge opened up about her first acting role in years, self-acceptance and more. Check it:
On playing Santana’s love interest on Glee: “I’m honored to portray a character that’s representing this chapter in our society. Being true to your sexuality and yourself is becoming the norm.”
On self-acceptance: “I don’t have the body of a model or Barbie. My main thing about being in the spotlight with my fans is, I want to be real to them. I have my problem areas, but I’m happy in my skin right now. I’m not going to sacrifice my mental health to have the perfect body.”
On learning to speak up for herself: “You’ve gotta be honest with people around you. And honest with yourself. When you’re having a rough day, be like, ‘I don’t want to talk about this, but I need to get it off my chest.’ If you have a secret—secrets make you sick.”
“I think it’s going to be so much fun,” Demi said. “There’s nothing better than women empowerment and having an all-girls tour.”
She added, “What’s ironic is we are all from The X Factor and that wasn’t even planned. It just kind of happened that way. I helped put Fifth Harmony together…and now they’re going to be opening for me. It’s so awesome.”
