Demi Lovato’s Second Chance

30 11 2011

At just 19, the sweet singer has already survived an eating disorder and a very public emotional breakdown. If anyone’s ready to be reborn, it’s Demi Lovato. See how she’s simplified her life—starting with her beauty routine!

This time last year Demi Lovato had—it’s hard to believe—checked into a treatment center to get help for her struggles with bulimia, anorexia and self-injury. And instead of the usual celebrity tactic (deny, deny, deny), Lovato has taken a much braver route: going public about her self-described meltdown and the childhood bullying she’s talked openly about, all in an effort to help other young women and girls. This winter Lovato embarks on a world tour for her perfectly named album Unbroken. We’re all ears.

Glamour: These pictures from the shoot are gorgeous. I love your new look. What is beautiful to you?

Demi Lovato: Having strength and confidence in yourself. I think that women who know who they are are beautiful.

Glamour: And do you feel like you’re there? Or are you still working on that?

DL: I feel like I’m there. I feel beautiful, you know? I feel strong, and I feel confident in who I am.

Glamour: What’s your go-to makeup?

DL: Concealer, foundation, blush, mascara. I can feel glamorous without makeup too, especially on my lips. They’re naturally reddish, so I often let them go.

Glamour: How has your look changed in the last year?

DL: Whenever you’re going through, you know, stuff, it definitely reflects in the way you wear your makeup and hair. Wearing less makeup is more comfortable for me.

Glamour: What’s one thing that has really stuck with you from your experience in treatment?

DL: I met so many young girls and even older women who had literally, you know, been through so much that I couldn’t even imagine. I was maybe a little more closed-minded, and I learned from them never to judge anyone.

Glamour: Is it true that you got tattoos on top of your cutting scars?

DL: I think scars are like battle wounds—beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it. My tattoos say “Stay strong.” “Stay” on one [wrist] and “strong” on the other. Now I’m able to look at them and be thankful for being alive. I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over.

Glamour: What’s the healthiest thing that you do for yourself every day?

DL: Pray. I pray every night before I go to sleep and every morning when I wake up.

Glamour: I want to ask you about some of your lyrics. In “For the Love of a Daughter,” you sing about the “family war” and say, “Your selfish hands always expecting more.” Is this experience about your childhood?

DL: I think people read way too much into that line.

Glamour: What do you mean by that? Do people think it’s abuse and it’s not?

DL: I just don’t think people need to be that literal. I think that could just be, like, a financial thing.

Glamour: In “Skyscraper,” you sing, “Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground.” Who are you singing to?

DL: It’s to every person who tried to bring me down. Everyone has the bully or the mean girl or the ex-boyfriend who tried to bring them down. For me, I think of the people who really weren’t there for me when I went into treatment. It was a really dark time for me because I had only a few people—I had surrounded myself with so many artificial friendships. It’s about those people too.

Glamour: You also sing, “You never really can fix a heart.” Do you believe that?

DL: I think every time you get your heart broken, there’s a little piece of it that chips away, and I don’t think you ever get that piece back. But I think you’re able to bandage it with time and with new people and other things that make you happy.

Can Wilmer Valderrama Handle Demi Lovato’s ‘Baggage’?

30 11 2011

Demi Lovato needs a guy who can handle “a little bit of baggage.”

The 19-year-old pop star tells Glamour magazine that she is very careful about dating after being hospitalized last year for “emotional and physical issues.”

“[I need] someone who’s not only supportive in my career, but also in my recovery,” she says. “It’s a big responsibility dating me because I come with a little bit of baggage, you know? I’m completely open. I’m honest about the journey I’ve been on, so I definitely don’t take dating lightly anymore.”

Lovato has recently been linked with “That ’70s Show” actor Wilmer Valderrama, who she also dated before their breakup in June. The two were caught kissing early this month, and two weeks ago attended a wedding together — where Lovato caught the bride’s bouquet.

Presumably, Valderrama can handle quite a bit of baggage. The actor, now 31, also dated Lindsay Lohan.

While Lovato was vague last year about why she dropped out of a Jonas Brothers tour and entered a treatment facility, she has since talked openly about what happened. She has said that she received treatment for bulimia and self-injury, and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder while under care.

“I was losing my voice from purging. I was self-medicating. I was not taking medication for depression,” she told Robin Roberts of ABC. “Basically, I had a nervous breakdown.”

Lovato says she is doing much better these days.

In her Glamour interview, Lovato seems to imply that ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas might not have been the most supportive mate for her. While talking about writing “Skyscraper,” her ode to second chances, she mentions an “ex-boyfriend who tried to bring [me] down.”

“[The song is about] every person who tried to bring me down,” Lovato says. “Everyone has the bully or the mean girl or the ex-boyfriend who tried to bring them down. For me, I think of the people who really weren’t there for me when I went into treatment. It was a really dark time for me because I had only a few people — I had surrounded myself with so many artificial friendships. It’s about those people.”
