    Demi Lovato won’t stop “being honest”

    The 24-year-old singer is known for speaking up about her past battles with substance abuse and eating disorders, as well her current battle with bipolar disorder, and although she admits she can sometimes be “nervous” when it comes to talking about her past, she knows it’s important to be truthful.


    Speaking in a trailer for her upcoming YouTube documentary ‘Simply Complicated’ she said: "One thing I'll never stop doing is being honest. I was not easy to work with. I'm coming up on five and a half years of sobriety. I’m on a journey to discover what it's like to be free of all demons.”

    It isn’t the first time the ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ hitmaker has spoken about the importance of honesty either, as she previously said having a “brutally honest family” helped her “stay grounded” when she was growing up in the spotlight.

    She said: "It's important to be honest. Being that way has always come naturally to me. I've grown up with some brutally honest family members who wouldn't let me be any other way. They keep things real for me and help me stay grounded.”

    Demi also revealed she tries to live her life with "regret" and says that whilst she often writes songs about "personal experiences", she has tracks she'll never release because "they would hurt the person who inspired them”.

    The 'Cool For The Summer' singer said: "My music comes from personal experiences. Life provides constant inspiration. I don't believe in regrets, but there are some songs I won't release because I feel like they would hurt the person who inspired them if they ever got out.”

    Meanwhile, Demi recently claimed she is “proud” to be bipolar, as she is glad she can use her voice to speak out about the disorder and help others.

    She said: "I'm not sick of it. If anything, I'm proud to be bipolar and speak about it. Bipolar is a mood disorder.

    "I deal with mood swings, I deal with episodes of mania, and bipolar-depression phases as well. But I've used my voice to help others, and I feel proud that I've been able to do that."
