Demi Lovato’s fans are up in arms against “The X Factor” star Simon Cowell. Simon is a judge on the show alongside Demi, and he made a remark about cutting that Demi’s fans are seriously upset about since Demi has been so vocal about her own issues with self harming.
After one contestant performed on the show, judge Paulina Rubio said that she wanted the star to “show me blood” the next time they sang, and Simon responded with:
You mean you want him to cut himself?
He then repeated the question, but changed it to “stab himself.” Simon has yet to comment on the negative press surrounding his remarks.
Are YOU upset with Simon?

Here’s a note from Demi about “Staying Strong,”
I have been through all kinds of experiences in my life, and I have faced struggles ranging from addiction to depression, all the while on a search for self-discovery and happiness. There are always going to be highs and lows, heartbreaks and victories, and everything in between. So sometimes the smallest few words can make all the difference; they can comfort and they can inspire.
Each day I meditate and pray by getting in touch with the higher power within me. No matter how old you are, where you come from, your race or religion, it is vital to have a higher power–something bigger than yourself that you can turn to for comfort. For me, it’s God, but for you, it can be anything you believe in, the universe, karma, etc. Though some days can be a struggle, it’s important to have something that will motivate, inspire, and help us stay positive and keep moving forward.
This book is a collection of my own words, quotes that inspire me, as well as lessons, meditations, reflections, and daily goals. They have helped me tremendously, and it’s a special and personal gift that I want to share with all of you.
Wherever you are in life, please read these and know that I’m always there for you. Stay strong, be brave, love hard and true, and you will have nothing to lose.
All my love,
