Demi Lovato might glam it up for the red carpet, but for her Seventeen cover spread, the pop starlet went for a relaxed, bohemian look. In the photo shoot, the “Give Your Heart A Break” songstress sports braids, beads, bright colors — and an even brighter smile. The 19-year-old opened up to the magazine about her troubled past, admitting, “I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain.” Now sober and healthy, she discusses loving her curves, and having a lifelong friendship with Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. Check out Demi’s latest pictorial and tell us if you’ll be picking up a copy of the February issue when it hits newsstands on January 10.
