It's no secret that Demi Lovato has had a tough couple of years, but she's come out of them and is doing great now.
She's performing, working on music, and judging on the X Factor – wow! But how did Demi come so far since her days of having a severe eating disoder? It was a struggle, and she explained why:
“There wasn't anybody who was openly speaking abut eating disorders and the issues that women have today.”
So now that she's in recovery, Demi has taken things into her own hands:
“I wanted to speak about that because when I was dealing with my issues I didn't have anyone to look up to that was open about it. So I decided to be open, and hopefully I've inspired some girls and some women – whoever, guys too! - to just feel comfortable in their own skin.”
Great work, Demi! She's definitely an inspiration.
