Demi Lovato: There's More to Life Than Doing Drugs & Getting Sh-t Faced

Demi Lovato looks super seductive on the cover of Cosmopolitan for Latinas‘ Summer 2014 issue, on newsstands May 6.

Here’s what the 21-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On inspiring young girls: “When I was younger, I needed someone in the spotlight to idolize, who stood for positivity and light and happiness, and wanted to change the world. And because I didn’t have that, I realized, I want to do that, if only for my 12-year-old little sister.”

On former partying life: “I was used
 to drinking and doing drugs on my birthday. I always imagined my 21st being a huge party where I’d get sh*t-faced and go crazy. But I realized that there’s so much more to life than that. Imagine walking 10 miles a day just to get water for your family? We have so much to be grateful for.”

On keeping her bi-polar disorder in check: “It’s a daily thing. I treat it with medication. Not everybody does that, but for me it works. That’s what works for me – medicating, checking in with people, being honest, and being grateful for things.”
