Demi Lovato Discusses Friendships with Selena and Miley and Why Sober is Sexy in Seventeen Magazine

It’s no secret that Demi Lovato had a rollercoaster 2010/2011. But the 19-year-old is back and better than ever and she even graces the cover of the February issue of Seventeen Magazine. In the issue, she opens up about everything from her dark past to her typical Friday nights.

On her painful past: “I’m not going to lie,” Demi says. “I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain.”

On being clean and healthy: “I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t throw up after my meals, I don’t starve myself,” says Demi. There’s nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of.”

On sober is sexy: “I think sober is sexy. It’s cool. I think it’s way cooler to be above the influence than under the influence.”

On a typical Friday night: “Now on Friday nights, if I want to go hang out with friends, I go hang out with friends. If I want to stay in and be in the hot tub and have people over to watch movies, I do that. I have more fun doing that than I did making the stupid decisions that I did back in the day.”

On her friendships with Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus: “There are two people that no matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each other’s lives. [Miley Cyrus and I] are strong-headed. Selena [Gomez] and I, we never fight.”
