A fresh faced Demi Lovato rocks the beads on the February 2012 cover of Seventeen. The 19-year-old actress/singer dished about confidence, body image and being happy.
On Body Acceptance:
“I’m not supposed to be stick thin — my body’s not made to be that way. I feel like I have a good butt. I don’t have boobs, but I got a butt!”
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.”
