Demi Lovato in Fashion for August 2103. L.A. has opened my eyes. The well knwon singer-songwriter had to deal with some emotional and physical issues since her time in rehab in 2010, and now she opens up about her past struggles in the August 2013 issue of the Fashion magazine.
She wears designer clothes by Ziena Esmail and Just Cavall and has been captured by Chris Nicholls. She talks how Los Angeles saved her, while revealing what she learned from bullies.
On making changes since moving to Hollywood:
“L.A. has opened my eyes. I learned that ignorance stood in the way of my insight. I wasn’t really being honest with the way I used to live. I was pretending to be a role model during the day and turning into a wild child at night.”
On her experience on X-Factor:
“The show made me a tougher critic and better empathizer. I understand artists a lot more now. I get scared for them because we if they don’t make the right decisions right now or if they don’t have the right people around them, they could put their careers in danger. What they never show [on X-Factor] is me backstage crying with certain contestants. I had to walk off a couple of times too because it gets too emotional for me. They never showed that.”
On how bullying affected her:
“I could remember word for word what my bullies said to me. Last night I had nightmares about it…just degrading things that hurt me and affected self-esteem. It affected the way I look at girls my age. I used to fear them.”
