Demi Lovato doesn’t feel like she should be expected to behave in a certain way by her younger fans’ parents.

The 22-year-old former Disney star uses some bad language on her fresh track Cool For The Summer. But Demi insists it wasn’t to push people’s buttons, it just felt natural for her to include the words.

“I curse a lot!” she told “The fact I had never cursed in my music was a small example of how I was trying to please parents [of young fans] and be a different woman for them. But if I am feeling like swearing, or wearing certain outfits, I shouldn't be tied to what they want or expect, it’s just fun.”

Demi has faced criticism recently for her latest cover shoot with Cosmopolitan magazine. In the main shot, the Skyscraper singer is seen in a silver sequin mini dress which features a deep slit at the front and sides showcasing her cleavage.

But once again, Demi came out fighting, claiming that the pictures captured her at her most confident after years of struggling with bulimia, self harm and substance abuse issues.

“What these individuals who are protesting don’t understand is that for the first time in a long time I feel incredibly EMPOWERED and the MOST BEAUTIFUL I’ve ever felt on this magazine,” she wrote on Twitter on August 6. “It’s so liberating to be able to show the world how confident a woman can be once she learns to love herself. It took soul searching and a bit of time before I learned to embrace my body therefore I could not have been more excited to do this shoot. I think what’s more important is showing women there’s NOTHING WRONG with embracing their bodies and sexuality. I am confident in my own skin and A PROUD @COSMOPOLITAN COVER GIRL! (sic)”
