“I’m not the type of person that’s on Instagram posting pictures of me and tons of my best friends,” COMPLEX covergirl, Demi Lovato, bluntly told Christine Werthman…and that was just the beginning of her telling us who she is and isn’t anymore.
In the issue currently on newsstands, Lovato talked candidly about her friendship with Iggy Azalea, who is “the furthest thing from fake,” the type of wedding she wants — shabby chic — the struggle to accept her cellulite and her fan-girl crush on Ronda Rousey — Lovato’s dream video would be fighting Rousey in the Octagon.
She also bared all in a sexy photo shoot with Tony Kelly. Clad in sheer panties, hugging bananas and flamingos alike, Demi is proving she a finally reaching a place of self-acceptance. And it wasn’t without help.
One of the people to call her out most in her clan is longtime, off-again-on-again boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. “The only times that we were off was when I was not in a healthy state of mind, or he was like: ‘I can’t be with you until you get sober. I can’t enable what you’re doing right now.’ Or with food: ‘You need to get your food settled before you can get into a relationship. You need to learn how to love yourself first,'” Lovato explained to Werthman. “So I did, and then that made our relationship so much stronger.”
As for the future, no wedding bells just yet, don’t expect her to be part of Taylor’s #squad, but do keep your fingers crossed that she can her Grammy dreams come true.
