Demi Lovato opens up about her struggles!

 

Demi Lovato has opened up about her struggles as a younger star in showbiz!

It's well publicised the issues that Demi has had in the past but the singer has now discussed them in depth... and it makes for interesting reading!

The most shocking revelation is that Demi has admitted that she "didn't think [she] would make it to 21".

She was worried that she would follow other child stars Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan in having well known break-downs with the pressures of fame.

 "I lived fast and I was going to die young. I didn't think I would make it to 21."

Demi went to rehab where she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and treated for bulimia, however she has now turned her life around and has moved on. 

"The more you talk about mental illness, the less of a taboo it becomes.

"As a popstar, I can say, 'Hey, I've got bipolar disorder - it's nothing that anyone can be ashamed of'."

Proud of you Demi!
