The last couple of years may have been a low point for former Disney star Demi Lovato, but at least she’s using her struggles to help others who may be going through the same thing!
In a recent interview with Fabulous Magazine the 19-year-old pop star opens up, albeit reluctantly, about her experimentation with illegal drugs. Namely, her use of cocaine.
It’s something I don’t really want to talk about… What I can say is that I was depressed. I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up’.
Lovato went on to add that getting her hands on drugs and alcohol was never a problem.
Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my as… I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.
As Demi’s days of partying were coming to an end, the Camp Rock actress decided it was time to check herself into a rehab program – and it was the best and hardest decision she ever made.
It was really, really hard and scary. I was homesick and lonely and several times I thought [bleep] it, I’m leaving… I had 14 hours of therapy a day. I listened to music and learned to knit. When I finally left, it was like being let out of prison… I’m not saying I’m perfect, or fixed, but I am learning to love and accept myself… My outlook is more positive and I am happy.
And we’re happy you’re happy Demi!

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you… or fed you (or I guess in this case, no one’s really doing much eating…)
Former Disney sweetheart Demi Lovato took to her Twitter yesterday to put the channel that made her a star on blast for making light of eating disorders. The 19-year-old lashed out against the joke ”I could just eat you up, well if I ate.” from the show “Shake it Up” Tweeting,
I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their actress’ from the pressures of an EATING DISORDERand yet still make joke about that very disease…..
The network was quick to respond via their PR Twitter account (isn’t it nice how everything is so personal these days?) and assured the irate actress that the joke would be pulled from the episode.
We hear you & are pulling both episodes as quickly as possible & reevaluating them … It’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!
Glad that’s settled!

No matter what problems she’s faced in the past, Demi Lovato is trying hard to face them honestly and not lay the blame where it doesn’t belong.
Lovato, 19, spoke to Elle magazine about her recent troubles and fesses up to her once terrible ‘tude.
“I was completely out of line all summer,” she says. “Just the worst attitude—totally ungrateful.”
As tempting as it may be for the “Skyscraper” singer to blame stress of the Camp Rock 2 tour with her ex Joe Jonas, and his girlfriend-at-the-time Ashley Greene, she says the issues were much deeper than that.
“I wouldn’t credit my meltdown to a guy. There was so much other stuff in my life.”
Lovato has spoken in the past about the taunting and bullying she endured in school and it was so bad for her, it led to her cutting herself and eventually, being home schooled by her mother. She says that to this day, she doesn’t know what led the mean girls to ridicule her so badly.
“Those girls never gave me an explanation for why they were bullying me,” she says. “One of the words they called me was fat. At that age, you think, Oh, so I don’t have friends because I’m fat.”
Lovato is moving past and through her music, she’s able to mature and blossom.
“What was always markedly different about her was that adult quality,” says Disney Studios chairman Rich Ross. “When you meet her, you know this isn’t a girl in stiletto heels—this is a woman.”

Actress/singer Demi Lovato just announced she is leaving the Disney Channel series, “Sonny With a Chance”. The 18 year-old, who sought treatment for emotional and physical issues last year, confessed the decision to not return to the show was “nerve-racking”, but she has to move on.
“It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music,” Demi tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “It’s kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldn’t be a better time for me to move on.”
“I don’t think going back to Sonny would be healthy for my recovery,” says Demi. “Being in front of a camera would make me nervous.”
Disney respects the star’s decision and continues to fully support Demi, who now wants to focus on her music career. “Sonny With a Chance” will return to the screen as a sketch comedy called “So Random” in June 2011.
“We respect Demi’s decision to focus fulltime on her music and not immediately return to her acting career,” a rep for the Disney Channel said in a statement. “She is a talented young woman and our hearts are with her as she continues to take action to improve her health and bounce back from adversity.”
Demi tells all about her struggles with bulimia, cutting and depression in an interview for 20/20. “I’m really excited to see where everything goes,” Demi said of her future. Good luck, Demi!!
