We all make mistakes, but sometimes we have people to tell us what’s right and what’s wrong, but if you are a celebrity, and you don’t have control over yourself you will get yourself in so many troubles because basically no one tells you NO.
In Demi Lovato’s latest interview with Fabulous Magazine she admitted that she had drugs and alcohol even when she was under age, and all of that because people wanted her back in their clubs.
Lovato admitted that if it wasn’t of her self control and her mother’s care she would have gone through what hundreds of other celebrities went through of drug and alcohol abuse which eventually led them to nothing but a hard life and an early death.
Here are some of the things that Lovato said on the Interview:
She hates having her picture taken: “I felt uncomfortable today [at the shoot]. Knowing I have bad angles and the photographer can take a bad shot makes me insecure. But I’m a lot better than I used to be. In my first shoot after having treatment, I went into meltdown and ran away from the studio. So I’ve made progress.”
On her eating disorder: “I’d make myself sick up to six times a day. My mum was worried, but because I was going through puberty I was having growth spurts so she assumed that was why I was thinner.”
She admits to doing cocaine: “It’s something I don’t really want to talk about What I can say is that I was depressed. I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up’.”
Club promoters enabled her: “Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass,” she says, a flash of anger briefly interrupting her sunny demeanour. “I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.”
On cutting: “It started with my wrists. People saw that, so I cut in places they couldn’t see. You do it because you feel so bad inside. You don’t know how to take it out other than on yourself.”
On rehab: “It was really, really hard and scary. I was homesick and lonely and several times I thought f*** it, I’m leaving. But my mum told me I would regret it. This was my only chance. I had 14 hours of therapy a day. I listened to music and learned to knit. When I finally left, it was like being let out of prison.”
On being a size 10-12 again: “After so long being thin, it was terrifying being heavier. But I am a naturally curvy Hispanic girl. I don’t deprive myself – I had a Kit Kat last night, but I don’t eat s*** every day. I have a meal service that brings my food to my home so I don’t have to think about being healthy.”
On her love life: “I’m not dating at all. I love having a boyfriend but need to be secure on my own first.”
