Demi Lovato Body Image Issue Began @ 3


Demi: ‘my life is drama free now’ + on what’s considered critical or bullying on X-Factor. Demi told KATIE + here about her that her body issues began at 3 years old: ‘I remember being 3 years old in a diaper and rubbing my hand over my stomach, and I remember thinking in my head ‘I wonder if one day this will ever

be flat?’.. ‘Bullying played more of a toll on me than if I was physically abused in school. I’ve always said I wished that they had just hit me in the face and gotten it over with because what they said to me sticks to me to this day and it [turned] me into the person I am today.’

On punching backup dancer: ‘It was huge mistake. I wasn’t really in control of my emotions at the time and I was just out of control and there’s no excuse for it but it definitely showed everyone I needed to get help and I think two days later I was checking into rehab.’ Full Katie interview airs on Monday.

Demi is now the NEW QUEEN OF TWITTER!

    she confuses me so much, she says the same stories over and over that they become less inspiration and harder to look up to. i swear last time she thought she was fat the first age at 4? and she check in to rehab that day after she punched her? either the magazines or interviwers wrong or she can’t remember anything so tells them and changes her information

    i read a fact saying all memories before the age of 4 are either made up slightly or you were told them and you don’t remember them your self as your brain at that age is like ‘a sponge’ and can’t hold onto things. :/ i hardly doubt at 3 she’d be thinking that… just another lie to grab more attetion of bullying which is stupid as bullying is a serious issue but she’s almost milking it a bit to get her extra cash and i know most celebs do this but when it’s about a matter like this it’s wrong.

    I’ve questioned Demi having any sort of problems, from bullying to eating to drugs to hitting that girl, from the beginning and this isn’t helping quash my doubts.

    Oceanup why you posting this again!!!! leave it alone.

  • TheStraightShooter

    What is so stupid about all of this is that even if you have taken an intro psych class you would know a 3 year old does not have that kind of cognitive development.

    Demi is not playing a victim. She’s playing a role model. She’s helping others. Why can’t anyone pick up on that? :(

  • SlimShady

    Annoying. Every time she opens her mouth its to spout off about what a terrible time she had, blah blah blah. FYI, Demi, you are not Jesus, you have not had a hard life. There are kids who are more worse off than you

    1) 3 year olds don’t have the cognitive development to comprehend body image issues
    2) a normal 3 year old would be potty trained by then, not in diapers
    3) it’s been like 3 years since all this shit started, GET OVER IT DEMI, no one cares anymore
    4) it’s called baby fat. i have never met a person under the age of 11 that has negative thoughts about their body

  • AcidPinkLemonade

    I find it hard to believe she had body image issues at 3. I’m more concerned by the fact that she was in diapers at that age.
    I’m interested in psychology and children’s brains aren’t developed enough when they’re that young. I call BS.

    I don’t like how she makes it seems like being physically abused/bullied is nothing compared to words, either. I have been on the receiving end of both and it’s easier to fight back with words than fists and physical strength.

    Why do I not believe this story? A 3 year old doesn’t even know and can’t even comprehend on body image.
    Also, is it possible to remember things back to when you were 3?

    I’m pretty sure she’s exaggerating her age here…If she was 6 you could still believe that. But 3? 3 year olds Barely know what’s goin on in the world
