Demi Lovato rocks a silk braid on the November cover of Teen Vogue. In the interview – The X Factor judge describes her personal style as “edgy, chic and a lot of leather.” She also says that her wardrobe includes Topshop, Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen.
Asked about “that country Southern-girl look” – she says, “I loved it, but it’s not who I am today.”
Her book Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year will be out this fall and she’s also collaborating with the cosmetics company The New Black on a capsule collection of nail polish.
On her body she shares, “I don’t have the body of a model or Barbie. My main thing about being in the spotlight with my fans is, I want to be real to them. I have my problem areas, but I’m happy in my skin right now. I’m not going to sacrifice my mental health to have the perfect body.”
She’s also really happy now.
“It may seem boring to other people, but my whole life I’ve lived at a really intense level—whether it’s fame or this or that. I’ve always worked really hard. Now I’ve gotten to the place where I’m healthy, happy. And my family is happy and healthy. When I do have free time, I love just sitting here and inviting people over and watching movies, or going to the movies. It’s a big night for me if I go bowling.”
What about the kind of guy she wants to date?
Demi states, “Someone who loves me and appreciates me for who I am. Who I can hang out with in sweatpants and no makeup, because that’s what I do when I have my time off.”
