Over the years Demi Lavato has had her troubles.
But now the singer has opened up about how when she was growing up she didn’t have and positive role-models to look up to.
Talking to stand-in hosts Rochelle Humes and her husband Marvin on ITV’s This Morning Demi said:
‘My album is full of tons of songs that I relate to personally through personal experiences, a lot of which I co-wrote.
‘Songs that are upbeat and dance worthy, but there are also some songs on there that are pretty in-depth and heartfelt.’
She carried on in saying:
‘It’s important for me to be open about my health and things I’ve been through cause I’ve realised when I was younger, I didn’t have anybody in the public eye to look up to that I admired.
‘I didn’t have anybody who was setting a good example about real stuff.’
Had I had someone in the public that I really admired come out and say “it’s ok that you’re not dealing with stuff well”… I want to be that person.’
‘I grew up in a time when socialites were taking over Hollywood – that it was cool to be super, super-skinny and partying…it was unachievable.
‘There was no-one around to say “it’s ok”. I just want to be that for other people.’
Demi is such a good role model for her fans because she know’s what some of them are going tough.
She one of the good role models.
