Demi Lovato Exposes Skin … and Shocking Revelations in ‘Cosmo’


Demi Lovato reveals her blue-laced bra in a plunging v-neck orange dress on the August cover of Cosmopolitan, and in her interview with the magazine, she reveals much more.

The 20-year-old singer-actress admitted she had dark thoughts at a very young age. “Even before Barney, I was suicidal,” Demi explained. “I was seven. With Barney, I guess subliminally, I did have a relationship with this figure that was saving my life in a way … I’ve talked about being bullied and the years of being a teenager, but I went through things when I was younger that I’ve never talked about that probably caused me to turn out the way I ended up turning out.”

But Demi, who’ll be turning 21 in August, has been using music as an outlet while on the road to recovery. However, the star won’t reveal what she’s talking about in the lyrics of her song “Warrior,” when she sings: “There’s a part of me I can’t get back/A little girl grew up too fast/All it took was once, I’ll never be the same/Now I’m taking back my life today.”

Instead, Demi told the mag, “My family knows what it’s about. When I’m ready to open up that subject with the outside world, then I’ll be free to talk about it. But right now, it’s kind of one of those things where the lyrics speak for me. It’s all in the song.”

From her father’s recent passing to all the other situations that have caused her emotional distress, the Cosmo cover girl continues to turn to music and handles whatever life throws at her with confidence. “That’s what makes me a badass,” she said in the interview. “Being a badass is handling your s**t.”
