Demi Lovato is one of the most honest ladies in Hollywood right now especially when it comes to her troubles (her love life is a little more private) and her recovery! Lovato told UK’s Cosmopolitan she joined The X Factor too soon after her rehab stint. “I don’t think I was ready when I started on ‘The X Factor’ [in autumn 2012]. In an ideal situation I would have maybe waited a year or more [after coming out of treatment]. I dived into work really quickly and maybe that wasn’t the best idea at the time, but the place I am in today is so much better than I could have ever imagined, so I’m really glad.”

Lovato went on to add that she wants to be a role model for her young fans, after she began to cut herself at the age of 12.”I was about 12 or 13 when I developed my eating disorder, and at that time nobody in the public eye talked about their body issues. I feel that if someone had admitted they had a problem, then I wouldn’t have gone down that route myself. That’s my goal in talking about my problems. I want to be the person for other girls that I needed to admire when I was looking for help and strength. It’s okay to love your body the way it is and it’s okay to reach out for help if you have drug and alcohol problems, or if you’re self-harming or being bullied.”
