Demi Lovato looks beautiful on the cover of Cosmo on Campus, a spin-off of Cosmo in the UK.
In the issue, Demi opens up, via E!, the magazine about her eating disorder and how she is doing now. “I was about 12 or 13 when I developed my eating disorder, and at that time nobody in the public eye talked about their body issues,” Demi shared.
“I feel that if someone had admitted they had a problem, then I wouldn’t have gone down that route myself,” she continued. “That’s my goal in talking about my problems: I want to be the person for other girls that I needed to admire when I was looking for help and strength.”
One of the big ways Demi overcame her struggles was by learning to accept herself. “It’s OK to love your body the way it is and it’s OK to reach out for help if you have drug and alcohol problems, or if you’re self-harming or being bullied.”
Demi is in a better place now and shared that she is “where I can finally trust and love and be a better person for the man I am in a relationship with, instead of being a clingy girlfriend or getting jealous.”
