Lovato: Secrets are sick

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato thinks “secrets make you sick”.

The 21-year-old says honesty is essential to a healthy life and she tries to live by that rule as much as possible.

“You’ve gotta be honest with people around you. And honest with yourself,” Demi told Teen Vogue. “When you’re having a rough day, be like, ‘I don’t want to talk about this, but I need to get it off my chest.’ If you have a secret - secrets make you sick.” Demi learned the importance of honesty after a 2010 stint in rehab. The US X Factor judge realised who her real friends were when she checked out and found just four texts waiting on her phone – despite having a party just before her treatment which several hundred of her pals attended.

The singer, who is Teen Vogue November’s cover girl, also opened up about her body image and journey to self-acceptance in the publication.

“I don’t have the body of a model or Barbie. My main thing about being in the spotlight with my fans is, I want to be real to them,” Demi said. “I have my problem areas, but I’m happy in my skin right now. I’m not going to sacrifice my mental health to have the perfect body.”

Demi is appearing on the current season of Glee as the love interest of Santana, played by Naya Rivera. She is extremely proud of her work on the show and the role she portrays.

“I’m honoured to portray a character that’s representing this chapter in our society,” said Demi. “Being true to your sexuality and yourself is becoming the norm.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

You will have to defer to others, which makes you anxious. There's never any problem when you're in control. You know how to act quickly and decisively. When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
