As a Disney product, thus mentally f*cked at an early age, Demi Lovato experienced a complicated, convoluted reality that forced the teen star to grow up, very quickly…
Demi recently opened up about being diagnosed as Bipolar in 2010 while seeking treatment for a number of harrowing personal issues - self-mutilation, eating disorders, substance abuse - and how releaved she was to discover a scientific reason for her muddled headspace.
The soulful artist revealed:
"I felt relieved when I found out. Like I'm not completely crazy; there's a medical reason for all of it. It's a daily thing; you don't get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own."
We are ecstatic the new X-Factor judge emerged from her troubled, twisted seas a strong, inspirational young woman, and are immensely impressed with her continuing honesty and humble nature.
Shine your light, Demi… SHINE IT HARD.
