Demi Lovato: 'There's so much more to life than getting wasted'

'Neon Lights' beauty Demi Lovato has given a new interview to Cosmopolitan For Latinas and explained that she has finally realised there's more to life than getting high and being drunk. 

Despite being only 21-years-old, Lovato has shown impressive maturity in her dedication to personal development and explained to the magazine that she now understands that getting wasted means absolutely nothing:

"I was used
 to drinking and doing drugs on my birthday. I always imagined my 21st being a huge party where I'd get s***-faced and go crazy. But I realised that there's so much more to life than that. Imagine walking 10 miles a day just to get water for your family? We have so much to be grateful for."

When asked about her progress, the singer confessed that she still has a lot of aspirations for both her personal life and career, and is proud of where she is at the moment:

"I’m very proud of how far I’ve come, but I definitely want to win a Grammy one day, and I dream of winning an Oscar," the singer said. "I want to continue to tour and build my fan base and make music that will last for decades."
