Demi Lovato Cosmopolitan For Latinas cover girl: ‘I was used to drinking and doing drugs on my birthday. I always imagined my 21st being a huge party where I’d get shit-faced and go crazy. But I realized that there’s so much more to life than that.
Imagine walking 10 miles a day just to get water for your family? We have so much to be grateful for.. When I was younger, I needed someone in the spotlight to idolize, who stood for positivity and light and happiness, and wanted to change the world. And because I didn’t have that, I realized I want to do that, if only for my 12-year-old little sister.’
On monitoring bipolar disorder in check: ‘It’s a daily thing. I treat it with medication. Not everybody does that, but for me it works. That’s what works for me — medicating, checking in with people, being honest, and being grateful for things.’
On career’ :I’m very proud of how far I’ve come, but I definitely want to win a Grammy one day, and I dream of winning an Oscar. I want to continue to tour and build my fan base and make music that will last for decades.’
On when she feels the sexiest: ‘I feel sexiest when I’m comfortable, this means when I’m in my element onstage, and also when I’m wearing a T-shirt, jeans, my leather jacket and no makeup!’ DEMI also went 3x platinum in Brazil!
