Demi Lovato: 'I Didn't Think I Was Going To Make It to 21'

Demi Lovato has always been extraordinarily open about her past struggles with depression, body image and addiction. At one point in her very young life she was self-medicating with alcohol, cocaine and OxyContin. It's bleak, and she's stronger than ever for overcoming it.

In a new interview with American Way, Lovato managed to be even more explicit about her struggles, telling the publication:

"I didn’t go into treatment thinking, ‘OK, now I’m going to be an inspiration.' At times I was resentful for having that kind of responsibility, but now, it’s really become a part of my life. It holds me accountable.”
