Demi Lovato Covers 'Seventeen' February 2012

Demi Lovato Covers 'Seventeen' February 2012

Demi Lovato graces the cover of Seventeen magazine’s February 2012 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (January 10).

Here’s what the 19-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On the problems she faced a year ago and just how bad it got: “I’m not gonna lie. I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain.”

On how she’s doing today: “I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t throw up after my meals, I don’t starve myself. There’s nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of.”

On who was there for her during the tough times: “There were two people [who were there for me]. No matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each others’ lives. [Miley Cyrus and I] are very strong-headed, so when we fight, it’s brutal and we’re like, ‘We’re never going to be friends again!’ Then two days later, we’re like, ‘I love you and I miss you!’ Selena and I, we never fight. She’s not a confrontational person at all. Both of them will never leave my life no matter what happens, because we’ve been through so much together.”

Wow she did drugs? Actually when first time I saw her in her show Sonny or whatever I never thought she would be one of those actresses who lose their minds. Why do the majority of young actors find their way in drugs?

Poor Little Rich Girl. Not an ounce of sympathy from me. And shut up already.

Only an innocent child could believe just Miley and Selena were her only support. Who do they think they are? There are more people and more things apart from Disney. These ‘stars’ are crap. As the majority of the rest of the world.

# 4

Hope she never resorts to drugs again and doesn’t become overwhelmed again, people with ED’s tend to have high relapse rates so I don’t think she’s in safe waters yet.

# 5

The question is: who does not do drugs in Hollywood???

# 6

You know there’s something wrong with Hollywood when a 19 year old starves herself, does drugs and cuts herself. Not a fan, but honestly I wish her all the best.
I think that in order for her to become a better person and stay on the right track she needs to surround herself with real people (aka not Miley) but actually genuine and professional people. Being in a relationship with Wilmer or whatever his name is, is certainly not gonna help.
It’s good that she’s doing all the stuff that she’s doing but there is room for improvement. Wish her all the best.
PS. Totally off topic, her hair looks so great lighter. She should definitely dye it that way. It’s super pretty on her.

You have to be a drug addict before becoming successful in Hollywood

# 8

@Charlie: I dunno its an unpopular opinion but I do think Miley is mature she has thick skin and she doesn’t come across as vunerable, she also took a break last year so has her priorities straight.

# 9

@Zahra: Yeah but you know she’s made all the weed jokes at her party. Miley certainly looks tough, but I don’t think it would help Demi to have that kind of energy in her life. She’s been in rehab for other issues I know, but still, I just don’t think it’s helpful. I get your point though.

She is terribly spoken for a 19 year old and I feel like these details for seventeen magazine are very inappropriate

i like her, i’m glad she’s sober.

@From Paris with Love: Why would she shut up when idiots like you keep talking about her? Also she doesn’t need YOUR sympathy. Just your attention. So congrats idiot. You just made her relevant :)

@Bleh: This is old news dear. She admitted this when she did her people magazine. She said that she’d be lying if she said she never touched anything.

@Charlie: It really amuses me when I see stupid posts like these. No seriously it does. I like how idiots believe that just because they have SURFACE information about someone, this means that they know someone personally. I assume you know Wilmer and Miley Cyrus right? I mean you MUST know them to speak so candidly about them. You couldn’t possibly be talking out of your rear end and making an assumption like every other idiot gossiper out there right? No that can’t be it at all.

@ego: You’ve obviously never READ a 17 magazine before. There are a LOT of drug stories that came from it and substance abuse issues as well. Research is a good thing love. That, and an education.

@Charlie: You are aware that WEED is actually BETTER for you than most of the crap that is out there right? The general misconception of weed is that it’s “bad for you” when in reality its really not. It’s probably one of the most harmless substances out there. Hell the booze that these celebs drink are probably ten times more harmful yet they are completely legal for consumption. Just wanted to throw that out there for the obviously uninformed people reading this.

@nerve: And only an idiot would read a PARTIAL COMMENT you moron! She also mentioned Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian. God can’t there be ONE smart gossiper out there? How stupid are you people?

Boy the moron haters are coming in packs. It always amuses me to see stupid people make dumb comments :)

@ego: Wilmer has a reputation for being a total player and Miley has talked about smoking weed on camera. Every recovering addict can tell you that it’s not a good idea to hang out with people who still live in that lifestyle. I get that weed is not damaging but it is a getaway drug but this girl has been through a lot. If you were in her place would you risk it?
PS. What really amuses ME is you, keep calling everyone idiot and moron. You are a just a ray of sunshine aren’t ya? Cause everyone’s opinion is wrong and you’re right. Your username suits you incredibly sweetheart cause that’s ALL you are. :D
by: someone who’s smarter than you :)

@ego: ‘You are aware that WEED is actually BETTER for you than most of the crap that is out there right? ‘
So just because it’s not worse than all the other stuff than it’s okay? AND YOU’RE CALLING EVERYONE DUMB? Are you serious right now? Man, you must be higgggggghhhhh! *ironically enough*

@ego: You’ve obviously never READ a 17 magazine before. There are a LOT of drug stories that came from it and substance abuse issues as well. Research is a good thing love. That, and an education.
So researching a teen magazine is equivalent to having an education. Low standards? I THINK SO. Man, I’m having fun with you :)


You can’t put all of the blame on Hollywood. Look at the young stars that are doing well. She obviously didn’t have a good support system or life outside of it either.

@Mary: You’re absolutely right. But not everyone’s the same. I guess that if you have like a weak character you’re gonna be swayed, and if you’re strong willed and secure with yourself you won’t.

Ok, it’s 2012 already, so, if she going to speak about this other year? I mean, talk about your album, your songs (I really like “unbroken”)
it’s terrible what happen to her, but i already listen what is she doing now with her problems and how bad it was in so many tv shows and magazines

@Charlie: Again so you actually know them personally right? Because anyone with half a brain would know that a “reputation” in hollywood doesn’t mean anything. It’s about as solid as the gossip that goes around. Also recovering addicts are taught to find better ways to deal with their issues as well as trying to fight against temptation. Hate to break it to you but this “lifestyle” is going to be everywhere she goes. Not just hollywood or real life. And there is no such thing as a “gateway drug” or a “getaway” drug because drugs don’t addict people. You really are inept.
PS: Actually if you read my post everything I have said is pretty much true. The people who post are are generally mentally retarded. Your concept that she has to shelter herself from life in general shows what little you know about…anything lol. Thank you for entertaining me with your general stupidity :)
