Demi Lovato For Mental Health Awareness

Demi Lovato‘s speech at AMHSA’s National Children’s Mental Health Awards. Demi got a special recognition award! More details HERE! Demi: ‘That pressure wears on kids, especially young women. But now I imagine those feelings while struggling with a mental-health issue or substance abuse. You’re constantly asking yourself, ‘What will happen if people know my diagnosis?’ ‘What if they don’t want to be my friend anymore?’

For me, it was more complicated. ‘Would I lose my career, doing what I love?’ ..I pretended for a long time to be OK so that I could continue to work. I didn’t want to lose that part of my life, because what I love most about touring and making music, it’s the connection that I make with my fans. It’s indescribable.

And that’s why I’m here today, to tell young people who are asking themselves those questions, uncertain of what lies ahead, that they are not alone. There are people that they can talk to, people that can help, but I’m also here to tell the adults in the crowd who think they’re already too overcommitted to take any time to get to know a young person, please think again.’

    hey now, at least Wilmer doesn’t go around spreading rumors that he slept with Demi to his friends like Alex Deleon did when she was like 15!

    Marketing, marketing everywhere. It’s all about the image. Well, see, you can’t expect much from a person who is fake from head to toe. Go talk to your parents or people close to you to help you solve your problems. And how do you take seriously a person who could barely construct a sentence?! How can you believe a person that changes her image everyday of the week, parties all the time, drinks, spends half of her day in front of the mirror *still looks like bad tho*? It’s all about the commercial, don’t be fooled. ;)

    she looks like a stepford wife like taylor swift nowadays.

    wich means she’s part of the illuminati now and that’s why her albums have increased in sales ever since unbroken.

    Y’all need to sit down. Like, why do you always worry about how you look, but NEVER worry about what’s in your fucking head. Y’all be like “Oh, no they told me I’m fat, I shall not eat anymore until I develop 20 different kinds of disorders and then whine about it. ” Like, if you’re fat just go and take a fucking walk or workout, don’t refuse to eat, because it’s fucking annoying and stupid. I’ve also been told a lot of epithets but you know what I did, you know, I DIDN’T GIVE A SINGLE FUCK, so you do the same. Start worrying about what’s in your head, not what’s outside of it. Stop cutting yourself or whatever bullshit you do and understand one thing, beauty is temporary, brain is forever. Go read a book and shut the fuck up.

    That doesn’t make sense because…

    Demi: Trashy, hypocrite, unprofessional, unlikable, snobby, doesnt write most of her music and sings what sells only & dates whores and guys who like her ass and brags about how big it is and supports the saying ‘bones are for dogs’

    Taylor: Classy, beautiful, intelligent, graceful, successful, funny, charming & writes a whole album without any help, dates guys who she thinks may complete her fairytale & has many friends who come from all shapes and sizes

    yeah obviously there’s problems that just can’t be solved with treatment and she’s just high on being famous

    I’m sorry you couldn’t keep a conversation without swearing five times? teenager much? as much as I loath demi and think shes a fake wannabe, eating disorders are called MENTAL disorders for a reason, you don’t know what to do or think anymore, your feelings are controlling you not your brain, you can’t do anything about it, I really hope you could understand but you can’t & the only way you’d understand is if you get an eating disorder or bipolar, i dont want you to but if thats going to teach you how to understand people’s feelings than, hopefully you’ll understand that when you have a mental disorder, you cant do anything about it its frustrating! YOU go read a BOOK & get EDUCATED – oh and get some class or learn how to keep a convo without swearing! SERIOUSLY

    I’ll swear if I want to. Kids nowadays are insane. Like, they get crazy over any little thing. This is life and you need to learn to deal with it. If everyone got crazy over any little thing this world would’ve turned into a freaking bedlam. Soo, if you’re telling me I should get an eating disorder to understand people than you need help. I understand very well what an eating disorder is and what I’m trying to explain you is that what causes these disorders are the “I wanna pretty and perfect” thoughts. The fact that girls take way too deep these bullshit than they’re supposed to. You can’t freak out, you just have to move on.

    I’m not a kid, I’m much older than you – I can tell by the way you talk, being a kid has nothing to do with not wanting people to swear, swearing makes you sound less serious more teenage. I’m advising you for future conversations to not swear, people might take you seriously – swearing is immature

    1. most people won’t care or see this time she’s talking

    2. what message is she sending exactly? that it’s ok to do drugs, assault people, and still be in a relationship with a guy who has a reputation for what i’d call sexual exploitation? it’s not about saying sorry (though she’s only recently said she abused drugs). why is this happening, and why did it happen?

    she’s not a role model because she’s still in crisis

    i think she’s got basic biological and lifestyle issues and she should not be a public figure

    She’s being a superficial slut! & if anyone tries to say

    I’m older than Demi but i know what self respect means and i know how to stay classy

    JUST SHUT UP EVERYONE! Sheesh people seriously hate demi on this site and I am so sick and tired of it. You all need to stop trashing someone you don’t even know. I have been bullied and it is a terrible thing to go through. Obviously those acting like what she is doing is so wrong never have been bullied, in fact they probably are the bullies. Leave the girl alone, she has never done anything to you personally so why do you care so much about what she does. She isn’t perfect and has made mistakes in her life. Last time I checked that is a good description of every human being on this planet. No one is perfect, stop acting like she has to be and if she isn’t she is automatically a horrible person. The fact that you are trashing her for doing something good is pretty pathetic. She does what she does to help others in her position. She is right, most people with mental disorders are afraid to speak out about them and no celeb really has before demi. It is so sad that people can’t see that! I am not some crazy fan either, I just hate seeing any celeb get trashed that doesn’t deserve it. They are people just like you and me. Demi hasn’t had an easy life and she went through the worst of it before she was even famous. She isn’t doing this for attention. It is also sad that she can’t even speak out about her issues without people saying she is fake and doesn’t really care. You know this how? Stop acting like you know her personally because none of you actually do. Please grow up and get a life because right now all of you just look sad and pathetic trashing someone you don’t know on a gossip site. I don’t know her personally either, but what she is doing doesn’t make her a bad person.

    I feel like someone from Demi’s camp is on here trying to reply to all the negative comments and defend her honor… Demi is a huge hypocrite and a shameless famewhore. As a former-fan I was disgusted when her drug abuse came out and her PR team LIED to cover it up and claim she went to rehab for only “emotional issues”. She has this fake redemptive persona for all the interviews. Why are some of you eating up her bullshit? She’s a master of PR, and of course she’s not going to be her true self in front of the cameras. She’ll be doing drugs at night and have some phony act on during the day. STOP BUYING IT PEOPLE. It’s truly disgusting, classless, and shameless.

    Trashy: go back to 2011

    2008: I dont like club music
    2011: Who’s that boy, all night long, you’re my only shawty

    Unlikable: LOL no Kim Kardashian has followers, but shes fake
    Snobby: keeps bragging about how her music is superior to people and Im only defending taylor because demi keeps bashing her, i used to be a lovatic & she did sing about ‘sex & shit’ GO BACK TO 2011 that’s when I stopped being a fan cause she turned into a whore, no I’m not 11 I’m 18 & if you haven’t noticed go watch ‘Love Story’ music vids and some taylor interviews to see how she believes in fairytales thats why I said that, and having an ass and saying ‘i have to date guys who like my butt’ is f***ing superficial
    I’m tired of trashy celebs – thats the only reason I like taylor & defend her she doesnt take pictures of guys hugging her while her shirt is unbuttoned and with a lacy bra like Demi did last year – get YOUR facts straight

    Okay um let me tell you something Demi is far from trashy I mean come on Amanda Bynes is trashy how is she a hyprocrite because she talks about her issues then drinks and party? That’s not a hyprocrite , unlike able ? Explains why she has so many followers … Snobby? Girl please she seems down to earth have you listened to her interviews Taylor’s more stuck up then she is . Doesn’t write her own songs? Now you no that’s a damn lie if she only sang about what sales then she would be singing bout shit like sex and getting high && partying …. && so what if she brags about her ass? Hell if I had her ass I would brag too . && I remember her tweeting “women in all shapes in sizes are beautiful” now I love Taylor but I love Demi too and all you just said was some bs what I respect about Demi is that she tries to put out the message that you don’t have to be a size 2 to be beautiful . I love Taylor but you act like she’s a saint like gtfo with that shit you hating ass && when you said Taylor “dates guys she thinks will complete her fairytale” like do you know how dumb and childish you sound? How old are you that you don’t know fairy tales aren’t real bitch she dates them because she likes them or thinks their hot then after they breakup she shades them…get you a life because you sound like a #1 Taylor swift fan that’s 11 and believes she’s a saint Demi’s no saint and she doesn’t try to act like is infrot of cameras like Taylor …. What you need to do is grow up and get your facts straight before your feeling get hurt. Frfr! Ughhh dumb bitches piss me off

    Then if we don’t know her (i’m not the same person), then neither do you. Sure she says she’s been through such a shitty life, were you there next to her or are you just taking her words for granted and being so gullible? Better to doubt than believe everything. Hollywood isn’t a place for charity and celebs lie about shit all of the time. This has been drawn out for way too long.

    Honestly, you don’t know a fuck about her.
    We don’t neither, you will say. However, she’s a person who have been through rough times and was able to overcome it all. And that’s pretty inspiring, specially coming from a public figure like her. It brings faith to a lot of kids. Your marketing speech says a lot more about yourself as a person than about Demi, tbh.

    Do you realize most of her emotional issues she have been through were before she was even famous? Your statement it’s so idiotic and insensitive. I don’t know why you guys even bother to comment if you’re not gonna bring down the attention out of such an important topic like mental health awareness just to talk trash about a succcesful artist who is actually DOING something, unlike you.
