Demi, ‘Recovery Doesn’t Have A Day Off’

Demi Lovato featured on MTV’s ‘This Is How I Made It,’ airing Saturday at noon.

‘I’ve learned so much about myself since my experience in rehab. I had to learn that if I do want to live this healthy lifestyle, I have to work for it just as hard, if not harder, than my career.

I had to take a break for a while and figure out what I was gonna do with my life. I was really contemplating like, ‘Do I really want to go back into the spotlight?’ I even quit my TV show because I knew that going back on camera would be way too much pressure for someone that’s trying to get over serious body-image issues. It was a decision that was so hard to make but I still put my recovery first.

I’ve had the most incredible year this year. It was really kind of crazy ’cause at the beginning of the year, I was a little frustrated. I was like, ‘You know, I’ve worked really hard and I want to be at a different level.’

Shortly after her MTV documentary ‘Stay Strong’, Demi: ‘About 10 days later, I got the phone call that asked me if I would be interested in being a judge on the ‘X Factor.’ It’s totally God telling me, ‘It’s time,’ and I really need to stay healthy and focused.

I worked really hard and took advantage of every opportunity that I had.. I’ve never in a hundred million zillion years thought that I would be able to sit here and tell you all this happened within the past 8 months.

My fans have been a huge inspiration to me and the support that they’ve given me has helped me through this entire experience of trying to become healthy and succeed at the same time. Knowing that I have an army of millions of people behind me is pretty incredible. It’s a really amazing feeling like the hard work has finally paid off and I’m so thankful and grateful for it.’

    What’s sad is that people bash her for telling her story. I don’t see what the problem is, because sharing this kind of thing is inspiring others to get help.

    THIS. I was thinking the same thing. She gets asked to do this because she is an inspiration and a great role model after going what she went through and recovered. If you don’t like her then don’t watch her videos. It’s that frickin easy. urgh so many annoying people.

    This bullying crap needs to stop! How many years has it almost been? -___- I mean it’s nice that she is doing this, but do you see any other celeb that talks about there problems every day or every week? Don’t think so. They talk about it in a few interviews and done.

    THIS!!!!! lol. I personally respect her the most when she’s talking about her past issues. It’s kinda important for people to hear what she went through because there are so many girls in the world who are suffering the way she suffered. They need someone to look up to, and Demi is that person for them to look up to.

    The call to be on “X Factor” wasn’t from “God”, Demi. It was from Satan. “X Factor” is evil, shallow, and mean. Go back to singing and being a real artist.

    Demi just admitted to having an “army” of obsessive fans who will defend her at all costs. That’s another sign that she’s the anti-Christ.

    ok i love her yes, but sometimes i get so pissed when all she does is talking about her past problems. like, i got it already.

    to recover you need to stop talking about, everyone knows what happens, there are loads more stars who will go to rehab and play the pitty game just like her. i think she does have problems and good for her to get it sorted but she’s dragging it out and being over the top, the minute she said she thought she was fat at 3 or 4 i couldn’t take her seriously. she needs to have a good life and get jobs WITH OUT telling her pitty story 60 times and coming up with new things she thinks will get her more attetion. she didn’t want to be on the camera because of body issues but she was fine with uploading a bikini shot on twitter.

    ^^^ This! And Miley will be buying dogs and getting tatoos while Hemsworth is filming another movie so he doesn’t have to come when their in their eighties.

    ^^^^ And Selena will be tyeing another of Biebers many, many drooping nuts up with another condition what he can’t do in the senior citizen home.

    ^^^^ And Braizon Cyrus will still be posing manly, yet not having any muscle definition with a dancing bear whose eyes are sadly sagging looking despondently at the ground while he listens to another version of lmfao rendition of “wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, yeah!”

    I’m sorry how is this bad? She only does these specials to inspire people and let them know that many people have these problems. And I’m sure her management is in control of her doing these shows even if she doesn’t want to.
