Pop princess Demi Lovato has revealed she's happy in her own skin these days after years spent struggling with self-image issues.
Back in 2010 the former Disney starlet checked herself into rehab seeking treatment for "emotional and physical issues," with Demi admitting to Seventeen magazine in 2011 that she had previously suffered from an eating disorder.
Having overcome her demons, Demi looks happy and healthy on the November cover of Teen Vogue magazine, telling 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.
The 21-year-old continued: 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."
The X Factor USA judge also encouraged her fans to speak up for themselves when they're having a tough time, adding: "You've gotta be honest with people around you. And honest with yourself.
"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."
2013 has been a huge year so far for Lovato. As well as having her album, new tour and X Factor USA commitments to contend with, the starlet is also releasing a book entitled Staying Strong and guest starring on the current season of Glee.
