i've never really liked demi lovato. she never really stood out to me and i always felt like her music was for younger kids. but, since her whole eating disorder/self harm/depression and everything came out, i've gained a lot of respect for her. not only because of the fact that she's had to deal with all of this for so long, but i just always thought of her as just another disney "star" pretending to be a celebrity. but now i realize that she's just a regular 18 year old, struggling with what so many young girls and women are struggling with. and i know from experience that it's definitly not an easy thing to do. and i kinda look up to her now, you know for being able to talk so openly about everything.
