Demi Lovato Covers 'Self Magazine' August 2012
Here is what the 19-year-old singer and X Factor judge had to share with the mag:
On her X Factor co-judges: “Britney [Spears] is such a sweet girl! We’ve gone through a lot of the same things, so we have a connection. Simon [Cowell]’s so funny and so cool, and LA [Reid]—he’s really awesome. He seems really, really sweet so I’m excited to get to work with all of them. I was totally nervous about Simon, too. I was expecting him to be mean or something, because of American Idol, you know? He’s like so, just, real.”
On how her perception of beauty changed over the years: “I used to feel my most beautiful when I was on the red carpet or at events or something where I’m all dolled up. Now I feel like the moment when I feel most beautiful is when I’m able to hang out with a guy without my makeup on or lay on the beach with no makeup on and not even worrying about what my hair or what I look like before I fall asleep. When I’m confident enough to show myself without makeup on, that’s when I feel my most confident.”
On being diagnosed with bipolar disorder: “Finding out I had a real emotional disorder helped me put together the pieces of the puzzle. I remember being on my tour bus thinking, My life is so awesome right now, but I’m so depressed. Then, a few days later, I’d be on top of the world. It was really confusing. When I got diagnosed, my life made more sense.”
FYI: Demi wore a Minnie Rose knit top and Rosena Sammi‘s Festival Chandeliers earrings in the spread.
