She's wise beyond her years!
Demi Lovato is finally in a great place after years of struggle, and she has learned a lot along the way. After seeking treatment for bulimia and self-harming in 2011, the sexy songstress took a job as a judge on X-Factor, but she confesses she wasn't quite ready for the responsibility.
"I don't think I was ready when I started on The X-Factor. In an ideal situation I would have maybe waited a year or more. I dived into work really quickly and maybe that wasn't the best idea at the time but the place I am in today is so much better than I could have ever imagined, so I'm really glad," she told the spring issue of Cosmo On Campus.
What else has she learned about herself through recovery?
"I have spent the last year focusing on myself and it's been incredible. More has come out of the past year than in my entire career so far, and I truly believe it was because I was taking care of myself and not focusing on guys. I'm in a place where I can finally trust and love and be a better person for the man I am in a relationship with, instead of being a clingy girlfriend or getting jealous," she adds.
Living life in the spotlight can't be easy!
