Demi Lovato covers the July 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine the week following the Austin, TX auditions for X Factor where all anyone talked about was Britney Spears and the “walk outs” that were actually permitted under the 30-year-old’s permissive contract.
No one was talking about Lovato. Which is, probably, to her credit. She is not causing any trouble. Even though Lovato and Spears have some of the same behavioral and emotional, issues including bipolar disorder. Although Spears has been suffering with it far longer, and it shows.
On her future: ”I want to be married with kids in 10 years.”
On her type of guy: “I don’t have many deal breakers. I’ve done so much in my life, it doesn’t feel right to judge other people. Oh, I know one quality I won’t tolerate. I would never be with a guy who is controlling.”
On being diagnosed as bipolar: ”I felt relieved when I found out. Like I’m not completely crazy; there’s a medical reason for all of it. It’s a daily thing; you don’t get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own.” - via Cosmopolitan Magazine.
