Demi in Seventeen: She’d been struggling with depression since she was a kid, and later started cutting herself, starving herself, or bingeing and purging. As the pressure cooker of her life began to boil over, Demi returned to those..
..destructive behaviors. She felt constant anxiety about looking thin, pretty and poised every time she stepped outside. It got so intense that she blew up and punched on of her dancers on tour. Demi: ‘I basically had a nervous breakdown.
I was really bad off. My parents and manager pulled me aside & said, ‘You need to get some help.’ It was an intervention. I wanted freedom from inner demons. I wanted to start my life over.. I didn’t want anyone to be able to say that..
..there was someone else working harder than I was.. There were times when I thought, I don’t know if I actually want help because my eating disorders are my best friend. Looking back on it, I just want to cradle my old self up..
..and hold her and tell her that it doesn’t have to be this way.’ Did Demi talk to Selena Gomez while in treatment? ‘We didn’t really discuss what I was going through, we just talked.’
