Demi Lovato has opened up to Nylon magazine about how she ended up at a treatment center. Demi spilled to the publication:
My mentality was ‘Work hard, play hard.’ It was hard to listen to the word ‘no.’ I wanted to make my own rules. I thought that if I was adult enough to get there, then I could party like an adult. And obviously, I couldn’t. My parents tried to control me, but I’d be like, ‘Oh really, I’m grounded? Well, I pay the bills. They did the best they could. And I think that’s why a lot of young stars struggle when they’re making money or providing for their family.
Demi also opened up about wanting to be known for more than her career with Disney or with her trip to rehab:
I would like to separate myself from being the girl who overcame her issues, or the Disney chick who ended up in rehab while she was still on Disney. I don’t want people to hear my songs on the radio and be like, ‘Oh, that’s the girl who cut.’
But regardless, Demi is very happy with the relationship she has cultured with her fans:
Now I have probably the best relationship between any artist and their fans. Because I have no secrets.
Demi’s ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas is working toward having no secrets with his fans as well. Read more here!
