Demi Lovato looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover of ‘Glamour‘ and she really did open up big time to the magazine. Of course people are going to give her shit for what she had to say but she is always pretty honest and unapologetic about being honest with herself. It is both a gift and a curse in Hollywood, that is for sure. If she was fake she would be called out for it, now she is going to be called a bitch for her comments about Taylor Swift. Yup, can’t please everyone.
With out anymore waiting, let’s dive into this interview!
On her break up with longtime boyfriend Wilmer : I think it’s healthy to be able to start over with someone else. Being sick was always a part of my relationship with him; I always had something wrong with me. I needed to let go of that. It was hard to depart from somebody who saw everything, but it may be nice to start fresh with somebody. Because that person I was when I was a lot younger is not who I am today.
On Taylor Swift: …. To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body. It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.It’s not realistic. And I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment. We all do things that aren’t, but I have to ask myself, Am I content with calling myself a feminist? Yes, because I speak out.
On her own triggers: Yeah, of course. Seeing cocaine in movies. I’ve never watched The Wolf of Wall Street. I can’t. I don’t like to go out to clubs, because I find myself seeing remnants of drugs in the bathroom.
On her advocacy on mind and body health: Right—when you’re an artist, you have a platform that can reach millions. I feel it’s selfish when you don’t use your voice, because then you’re just relishing the attention—you’re not using it for good. I have felt uncomfortable having people say, “You’re my idol,” because I want them to idolize God. I want them to idolize somebody that’s done a lot. So I think it’s important that artists use their voices for so much more than just their talent.
You can check out the whole interview and I really suggest that you do. Demi is working hard to be an advocate for women’s rights along with mental health issues. She is someone who is really refreshing in this incredibly fake Hollywood world.
