Demi Lovato on Being Her Family Breadwinner
Posted by Adam
DEMI Lovato admits being her family’s breadwinner came with a hefty price.
The star — who ended up in rehab in 2010 — says that since she had grown-up responsibilities, she thought she could act like a grown-up, too.
“My parents tried to control me, but I’d be like, ‘Oh really, I’m grounded? Well, I pay the bills,’ ” she says.
“They did the best they could. And I think that’s why a lot of young stars struggle when they’re making money or providing for their family.
“My mentality was ‘Work hard, play hard’.
“It was hard to listen to the word ‘no.’ I wanted to make my own rules. I thought that if I was adult enough to get there, then I could party like an adult. And obviously, I couldn’t.
“I would like to separate myself from being the girl who overcame her issues, or the Disney chick who ended up in rehab while she was still on Disney.
“I don’t want people to hear my songs on the radio and be like, ‘Oh, that’s the girl who cut’.
“Now I have probably the best relationship between any artist and their fans, because I have no secrets.”
