Demi, ‘I Call Nick When I’m Struggling’

Demi Lovato Huffington Post interview: On DOMA and Prop 8 being struck down: ‘Yes, I’m really glad it fit that day so well. That was such a huge day for America. It was a historic day, especially for gay couples , so I was really excited about that. The song, the special meaning behind it, is all about finding love in the USA. ;Made in the USA” is more than just a sticker on a package. It’s love.

If you could go back in time and tell your teen-self one thing, what would it be? That I was beautiful and didn’t need to change anything about myself. If you weren’t in the entertainment industry, what would you be doing instead? I think I’d probably go to school to be a criminal psychologist, studying what goes on in people’s heads when they’re in homicide cases and crazy stuff like that. I’m addicted to crime shows, so that’s pretty much what I would do.

We love your friendship with Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas, who you’ve mentioned were there for you during rehab. What qualities do they have that make them such great friends? You know, people in my life, like Selena and Nick and Miley, even, they’ve all been there for me during really hard times. I like to surround myself with people who understand where I am in my life and that have my best interests at heart. I feel like, especially with Nick, I feel like I can call him when I’m really struggling or whatever, and he’ll be there for me. It’s a really good feeling to have a friend like that.

There is still more Demi news.. According to Radar, X-Factor contestants were specifically told not to mention Demi’s father passing in any way on stage: ‘One kid got up on stage to sing and when the judges asked him about his motivation for singing he mentioned a family member that had recently died.

He then voiced his condolences to Demi for just losing her father and she didn’t even respond. All the judges kind of froze and told him to sing. Instead of critiquing him or discussing his performance, all the judges just said ‘no’ and they basically rushed him off the stage. Demi had been really upbeat and funny the entire night of auditions. But her mood completely changed after that contestant, which is understandable. That poor kid didn’t have a chance once he brought up Demi’s dad.’

You’re really honest with your fans about what you’ve been through. Why do you choose to be so open with them? I choose to be so open with them because growing up, I really didn’t know a lot about eating disorders and mental illnesses and things like that, so I really didn’t have anyone to look up to. And I want to provide that for young girls that are going through middle school and high school and whatnot, telling them that it’s OK to get help, that it’s possible to get better. You don’t have to starve yourself or throw up or do anything crazy to be accepted, for people to love you.

    I love her vulnerability in this interview. She is very real in my opinion. The people that call her “fake” clearly have not seen what other stars are like in interviews. (Lana Del Rey, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift… these women all put on a different persona/façade when they do interviews)

    I agree with the first comment except on Taylor Swift – Idk she seems real, I know innocent people like that don’t exist and come across as fake but she seems clueless kinda like Michael Jackson, when watching his interviews you’d think he lowers his voice & act like a child for an image but in reality its just their nature

    Anyway I like Demi but she looks trashy with blonde hair and dark makeup

    I’m not Nick or Demi I don’t know how they feel or think. But I just don’t get shipping Nemi. To me seems like both of them need a bf/gf that can just follow them around like a puppy. That would never work with both of their schedules
