Demi Lovato may have had her fair share of problems with bulimia, self harming, alcohol abuse and bipolar disorder, but after she went to rehab, she was able to think back on the things she did and change her life.
In a recent interview, the 20-year-old sensation talked about when she went to rehab and what having a lot of 'friends' really means.
Paula Abdul is happy and proud of Nicole Scherzinger for getting help to combat her bulimia — something that we're sure everyone is feeling, even if Paula happens to be coming from a much closer place.
And we aren't talking about both being judges on The X Factor.
We're talking about how Paula herself overcame a battle with bulimia!
Katie Couric had Demi Lovato on her show, Katie, recently where the beautiful X Factor judge opened up about her past with eating disorders and body image issues.
Then, Katie revealed a pretty shocking fact about herself… she too has suffered from an eating disorder, more specifically, bulimia.
"I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that. And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that’s wrong, you’re full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it’s one cookie or a stick of gum that isn’t sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that."
What a painful and traumatic past.
Thankfully, she got over them and is now a healthier person. We hope that others can learn from her story.
