Demi Lovato - Demi Lovato Puts Personal Problems Behind Her

Demi Lovato put her past personal problems behind her on American TV on Saturday (17/9,) - and expressed her hope that she could use her experiences to help others, stating that she wanted to be a "role model."
The 19 year-old singer/actress was on Ellen Degeneres' talk show ahead of the release of her upcoming third studio album 'Unbroken,' out on September 20th, and - in a candid interview - addressed previous problems she'd encountered over the past couple of years with bulimia and self-harm.
"So many things were going great in my life, and then all of a sudden my personal life just went down at crazy speeds," she said, according to People, before philosophically adding "I had a negative breakdown and it changed my life forever."
Lovato put her problems, which included being diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, down to image-obsessed tabloids; ""It was the time in the tabloids when very, very skinny girls were on the cover of every magazine, and that's what I was looking up to," she told DeGeneres.
Having seemingly emerged renewed from treatment however, Lovato was in bullish mood and stated; "There was nobody out there for me to look at and say maybe this is unhealthy . I want to be that for a 13-year old girl at home deciding whether or not to eat dinner, or an 18-year-old girl deciding whether or not to keep her breakfast down."
The episode of 'The Ellen DeGeneres' show airs in the US on September 20th.
