Demi Lovato, ‘I Come W/ A Little Baggage’

Demi told Glamour: ‘[I need] someone who’s not only supportive in my career, but also in my recovery. 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.‘ Demi implied that ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas might not have been the most supportive mate for her. While talking about writing ‘Skyscraper’ she said an ‘ex-boyfriend who tried to bring [me] down. [The song is about] 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. And 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.’

    stfu
    he did nothing to her sorry ass okay ?
    she said herself that she was a bitch to everyone around her
    fucking bitches
    she didn’t even write the song and she tweeted the lyrics while she was dating him and she was all like “he’s perfect ZOMG !!11″
    -_-

    Is he the only boyfriend she’s ever had? Come on, she said in all the interviews how fucking perfect he was, and how he treated her. Why would JOE want to bring her down? Ugh, so stupid.

    right I don’t think she’s talking about him. she said before that her other bfs were terrible.
    and if he was so terrible she wouldn’t be friends with him now

    I believe that he might have made a mistake but I’m sure he wasn’t a total jerk. he probly didn’t even know that she had those issues (I mean come on she didn’t even let her family know so why would she let him know). when she went into treatment, I’m sure he didn’t say anything about it cuz it scared him. a lot of guys don’t deal well with emotional baggage so they get scared and run away

    I admire so much Demy for the courage she has to front all this problems by her own and I hope that she’ll do this great work until the end. Also I wish her to found the support that she really needs into a man who will love.

    wait she didn’t write Skyscraper? where did you hear that? mind you I don’t follow Demi
    oh well it’s still an amazing song.

  • crazylady

    Remember how he said he liked Ashley because she put him & his feeling first. I think Nick & Joe are both really self-centered and need girls that cater to them.

    he never said that. the article said he said this but take what you read with a grain of salt. so until I hear it straight from his mouth I’m not gonna believe it.
    I can’t see how he would be self-centered because self-centered guys don’t care about other people and he’s done a lot of charity work (this is especially true for Nick)
    in fact I think he has dealt with a very low-self esteem. one example is he showed so much guilt after the Taylor thing. he just has seemed to care too much about what other people think in general.
    and often the people who are the most outgoing can be the most insecure (it’s called hiding it)

    He knew about her issues since he met her….

  • dullsunshine

    I don’t get it, she didn’t write Skyscrapper so how can she be talking about those mean people?

  • ljs1202

    I don’t think Joe tried to “bring her down” per se but I don’t think he would be the most supportive boyfriend. I think it’s “all about him”. Remember how he said he liked Ashley because she put him & his feeling first. I think Nick & Joe are both really self-centered and need girls that cater to them.

    ==========================================
    She could relate to it.

  • Ijustneedyounow

    of course she had a rough time and is still going through some shitty stuff but this is starting to get anoying. eating disorders and bullying are not the only things teenagers go through. and her constantly saying “love your curves” and with mileys “beeing shaped like a woman is sexy and beeing shaped like a boy is not and blah” with all that shit they’re basically dissing the naturally skinny ones that can eat as much as they want and still don’t get curves or that just have an a cup. it’s not fair i have a friend who’s always extreamly upset because her figure is just more boyish and she can’t help it. when she was younger everybody cept telling her “you’re still young. it will all come in time” but now she’s turning 16 and that line doesn’t help at all anymore.

  • kattt.

    I get that she is trying to help other girls by talking about her issues,
    but sometimes she just needs to move on from the topic. I know interviewers ask her, but she could easily give a short answer and hint that she wants the subject to change or she could put it on her rider to not ask a lot of questions about it.
    I hate to be rude, but it’s just kind of annoying. :/

  • AcidPinkLemonade

    I agree with @kattt.

    It’s great she’s getting the word about there about bullying and eating disorders, but those aren’t the only things teens go through and it’s annoying how much she talks about it.

    I know she means well with the whole “love your curves” thing but as a naturally thin girl, it’s kind of offensive.
