Demi Lovato on low points: 'I was really lonely'

Superstar Demi Lovato has revealed that she was really lonely when she was feeling low because she didn't know how to open up or who to turn to.

During a new interview with Cosmopolitan for Latinas, the 'Neon Lights' beauty explained that dealing with loneliness was something she found to be a struggle during her lowest points:

"It was that loneliness you get when you’re sad and it’s the middle of the night, and even though you have family and friends to call, it’s hard to pick up the phone."

She went on to add that having someone 'in the spotlight' to look up to is important for any girl in her teenage years, which inspired her to turn her life around because she has a 12-year-old sister:

"When I was younger, I needed someone in the spotlight to idolise, who stood for positivity and light and happiness, and wanted to change the world. And because I didn’t have that, I realised, I want to do that, if only for my 12-year-old little sister."

When asked how she keeps herself in line, Lovato confessed that honesty and openness are crucial: "That’s what works for me – medicating, checking in with people, being honest, and being grateful for things."
