In a new interview with Elle magazine, Demi Lovato chats about the smack heard around the 'net, when she hit backup dancer Alex Welch. Demi admits she was completely out of line all summer and had the "worst attitude, totally ungrateful," but her moment of reckoning came when she b!tch slapped Alex.
"When you punch someone on a plane, enough is enough. Right after, I texted my mom and just said, 'I'm sorry.'"
Her relationship with Joe Jonas had just ended and some wondered if that had something to do with her issues but she says, "I wouldn't credit my meltdown to a guy. There was so much other stuff in my life."
Demi struggled with anorexia and bulimia at the tender age of 9, and when she was 11 she began cutting herself. Demi was photographed with light scabs on her wrists on the rep carpet of Miley Cyrus' 16th birthday party, and her publicist had released a statement saying they were marks from gummy bracelets. Demi could have come up with something better than that!
"I don't think I would have been ready to talk about (my problems) then, but I could've come up with something better than gummy bracelets."
"Needless to say, that publicist is no longer with us. I mean, she's alive."
Wow, bulimia and anorexia at such a young age and becoming a cutter before she even hit puberty? That girl has gone through some serious issues at a young age. She's still just a young thang and is facing her problems head on. It takes serious balls to talk about the things she has dealt with, but it also makes her stronger. Go girl!
