Demi Lovato Bares Her Bra & Talks About Bullies In Cosmopolitan: “I Was Suicidal. I Was Seven!”

Demi Lovato shows off her infamous curves (and lace bra) on the August cover of Cosmopolitan, and it’s not surprising that the 20-year-old singer is hotter than ever! What is surprising is the shocking revelations Demi shared with the fashion publication. The Disney darling, who once battled addiction, bulimia, and cutting opens up about bullying, being suicidal, and how she bounced back from it all.

“When I look at someone who’s out there partying excessively or rappers rapping about doing drugs, who people look up to, and think, ‘Oh that’s a G; that’s a gangster,’ I think you’re actually being a giant pussy,” she said. “Sorry, but those rockers in the ’80s were the furthest thing from rock stars. They were so insecure and so lonely that they had to do these things to get them through the day. If you’re spending your entire early 20s chasing the next party, what are you running away from? That’s not a badass. What’s a badass is when you can sit through your problems and feel emotions when you don’t want to have them. There have been nights where I’ve had to sit on my hands, because I want to act out, because I physically can’t sit still in the pain I’m dealing with, from looking back and being bullied or other things that happened. And now, as hard as it may be, I will do that. That’s what makes me a badass. Being a badass is handling your shit.”

While The X-Factor judge credits God for helping her to handle her shit, she admits she’s not the most religious person in the world. “I’m not super religious, but I grew up Christian and I believe in God,” Demi confessed. “When I’m in L.A., I don’t talk about it that much because people are very judgmental, but I just feel like God gave me a voice, not just to sing with. He put me through those things, which seemed horrible at the time, but they were so worth it. With the obstacles I’ve overcome, I can help people.”

When starring on the kids television show Barney & Friends, Lovato admits those obstacles were already full-blown. “At the time, I was just so grateful to be on TV, but I was also really struggling,” she recalled. “Looking back, there was a connection, probably between any kid who’s ever sang that song to Barney, a little place in a child’s heart, a void, that could be filled. And maybe Barney fills it. Even before Barney, I was suicidal. 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.”
