The 20-year-old entertainer and X Factor judge Demi Lovato is the cover of fashion magazine Cosmopolitan for August. The issue tackles the meaning of her songs, her first job and her struggles in life.
Check the sample interview below.
On her first gig on Barney & Friends: “At the time, I was just so grateful to be on TV, but I was also really struggling. Looking back, there was a connection, probably between any kid who’s ever sang that song to Barney, a little place in a child’s heart, a void, that could be filled. And maybe Barney fills it. I’ve talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I’ve never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out.”
On the lyrics from her song “Warrior”: “My family knows what it’s about. When I’m ready to open up that subject with the outside world, then I’ll be free to talk about it. But right now, it’s kind of one of those things where the lyrics speak for me. It’s all in the song.”
