Demi Lovato Says She Used To Be A Bad Role Model

August 2, 2011 • By

Demi Lovato revealed during a recent radio interview that she thinks she is a much better role model now than she was before she entered treatment late last year. Here’s what Demi revealed about her fans looking up to her:

Kids used to tell me, ‘You’re my role model.’ And I’d want to shake them and be like, ‘Whyyyyyy?’ I finally feel like I can inspire people. I can be proud of it. Because I know that if I can use my voice to speak to one person, or one family, then I’ve done my part. I feel like it’s no coincidence that God put me through all of this and has also given me the voice that I have. I feel like my purpose on earth is much greater than just being a singer, a musician or actress. I think it’s to reach out to people and to raise awareness of these issues that not many people speak about.
