Demi Lovato has recently dived back into the limelight after her stint in rehab and personal meltdown.
The Disney singer was reported to have been battling with her recent break-up with singer Joe Jonas, pressure from the media, and an eating disorder she had been struggling with for approximately six years. When Lovato allegedly punched a backup singer from her Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam tour, friends and family knew it was time to get the singer help.
"I was just lying to everyone. My managers, the people I was working with. I was lying about eating, and just being happy," Lovato revealed on On Air With Ryan Seacrest Tuesday morning.
"It was affecting every area of my life. I was being cranky, I was irritable, not pleasant really to work with. I became a little brat on set, and I just had so much growing up to do," she continued.
Now, after the release of her new single "Skyscraper," the 18 year old singer had a conversation with "Elle" magazine. "I was completely out of line all summer. Just the worst attitude-totally ungrateful." Demi said. "When you punch someone [backup dancer from tour] on a plane, enough is enough. Right after, I texted my mom and just said, 'I'm sorry.'"
When asked about her break up with Joe Jonas and how it might have contributed to her meltdown, she said she would not put the blame on a guy: "There was so much other stuff in my life."
Lovato did have other things going on. It was reported, even before her rehab stay, that the singer had self-mutilation issues due to bullying and other circumstances growing up.
"I just had so much going on in my head. It all just boiled up and I ended up doing things that I regret to this day...There is a lot of pressure these days. I feel like I live in a city where no woman eats," she said on On Air With Ryan Seacrest.
"This song [Skyscraper] is so special to me because it's inspired by my journey and the struggles that I've dealt with this past year," Lovato said in a recent interview with seventeen.com. "I hope people are able to relate to it and realize that they are able to rise above and overcome any obstacle, no matter the circumstances, and shine like a skyscraper."
Fans are very excited that Lovato has a bright outlook on life and is not allowing anything to hold her down. This motivational tune has enlivened girls everywhere.
"I am still on a personal journey dealing with my own issues each and every day, but the best advice I can give to anyone going through a rough patch is to never be afraid to ask for help."
Lovato's photo shoot with "Elle" magazine reveals a more mature and dark Demi. However, the singer is putting her past behind and moving towards a brighter future.
