Happy Birthday, Demi Lovato!
The former Disney star just turned 23, and Yahoo! Beauty sat down with her to get the scoop on Lovato’s organic body transformation, her relationship with actor Wilmer Valderrama, her much-anticipated album this fall, and her devotion to encouraging others to love themselves for the way they are.
She says her biggest source of support these days is her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama – “I’ve never been more in love. I’m so excited to have him in my life as my best friend and my boyfriend.”
On her newfound strength and happiness– “I think I got here because I’ve worked really hard. I go to the gym everyday, I’m taking care of myself and I’m keeping healthy. I feel like when you put a lot of time and effort into being healthy, you feel it. When you’re constantly bettering yourself, you’re able to accept your body for what it is, and you learn to love it”
On her new hit single“Cool For The Summer” – “I feel a lot more grown-up now than I ever have when it comes to my music. The last time I released an album I was 20. I’m feeling more mature and more confident. It’s an edgier, sexier album, so I’m excited for people to hear it.”
Her openness has yielded countless devoted fans called Lovatics — “My fans have inspired me a lot, and they’ve gotten me through some rough times. I’m very grateful for them, so any time I’m going through something I always turn to them for support. And their support online just makes me feel so much better.”
