Former Disney star and newly minted X Factor judge Demi Lovato hasn’t been one to discuss her old habit of cutting herself, but now she is opening up about it. Demi covers the newest issue of Self magazine in which she talks about her self-harming.
She told the magazine, “There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin – that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode. I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.”
Now, things have changed for the positive for Demi. She said, “I make time for myself and meditate. I’ve spent the past two years getting over an eating disorder and issues like self-harming and bipolar disorder. I have to work on this stuff every day. I’m reminded of that whenever I eat or feel down.”
Kudos to her for dealing with some pretty hard personal issues. And now that she is judging The X Factor, we don’t have to worry about hearing anymore crappy music from her anytime soon.
