Seventeen contributing editor Demi Lovato talks about what she does to stay strong in the face of criticism.
There has been a lot of media attention on some comments made on Twitter the night of the VMAs. I responded to a negative tweet about my body and I want to set the record straight for my fans that I am happy and healthy.
I am on a journey to recovery and it is one that I have to take day by day. I felt like I had to stand up for myself, which I tried to do in the best way possible. Although it is hard to hear criticism, I have been surrounding myself with healthy people who help me to stay healthy. But I definitely want you all to know that the support I receive from my fans means the world to me. It allows me to STAY STRONG and continue my journey! I hope that I can inspire each of you to do the same.
I am soooo excited for my upcoming shows in NYC (9/17) and LA (9/23 )! YAY!! It feels so good to be back on stage. I am loving dancing and rehearsing every day. I feel so lucky to work with such amazing dancers, musicians, choreographers — what an inspiration they are to me! Singing and performing keeps me feeling strong and energized. I feel like I am truly myself when I am onstage and…I LOVE getting to see all of you!!! These shows are going to be amazing! I hope to see you there!

There are two ways for pop stars to make a Survivor Album: either power-sing through your problems like Christina Aguilera, or make like Rihanna and dance till you forget what you’re supposed to be getting over. On her first release since checking out of rehab, Demi Lovato wants to have it both ways. She’s front-loaded Unbroken with leave-no-synth-effect-behind R&B (”You’re My Only Shorty,” featuring Iyaz), shy love-in-this-club tracks (”Who’s That Boy”), and Timbaland bangers (”All Night Long,” with Missy Elliott). So it’s a little unnerving when she gets to the album’s second half — the part where, as she told Ryan Seacrest, ”I’m singing about some issues that I’ve never even spoken about before.” Having struggled with cutting since she was a preteen, Lovato admits, ”I ended up with wounds to bind…and I just ran out of Band-Aids” on the hugely affecting ballad ”Fix a Heart.” The piano confessional ”For the Love of a Daughter” finds her picturing herself at age 4, begging her dad to ”put the bottle down” and keep his ”selfish hands” to himself. And then there’s ”Skyscraper,” an anthem so honest you can hear her voice breaking. Clearly it’s been a tough year for Lovato. But as Rihanna could tell her, sometimes bad years make great songs. B+
