In November 2010, pop singer Demi Lovato entered rehabilitation because of “emotional and physical” issues. Now, in Demi Lovato: Unbroken, MuchMusic’s Lauren Toyota brings to light Lovato’s incredible journey dealing with bi-polar disorder, eating disorder, depression, cutting and post traumatic stress. Toyota also tries to find out why it was so important for the 19-year-old to become so vocal about the issue post-rehab.
In the feature, the singer and actress, talks to Toyota about her life growing up, being bullied while in public school, and the insecurity that stayed with her when she entered the spot light in Disney’s Camp Rock. She also admits that she wasn’t able to handle the constant pressure of comparing herself to other girls in the industry. This led to struggles such as cutting herself, and dealing with an eating disorder. However since rehab, Lovato has one strong goal in mind; to become an inspirational role model and spokesperson for her issues.
