Demi Lovato Isn't Worried About Being Politically Correct Anymore
"I use my voice for more than just singing."
Fresh off of the release of her sixth studio album Tell Me You Love Me, Demi Lovato is living her best life!
It isn't just her music leaving a lasting impression on fans. The 25-year-old singer's fearless decision to be transparent with her drug and mental health battles is another reason they're so loyal.
And in the latest issue of Notion Magazine, the former Disney Channel star explained why she's proud to speak out in an industry where everyone "wants to be politically correct."
"Fame is weird, but I manipulate it for the better. I see some artists that don’t say anything because they want to be politically correct."
"It’s frustrating because they have the ability to reach millions of people and do something good, rather than not saying anything."
"We already are in a very narcissistic career – 'look at me, look at me.' I use that as a way to use my voice for more than just singing."
"If you are not using your voice and not standing up for the things you believe in, and not being vocal about certain topics, then you’re just basking in the glory of a very egotistical career.”
"My fans have been able to relate and look at me and say, ‘If she can get through it, I can too.’"
"I needed that growing up, and having that positive response to just being open and honest is really rewarding."
"I no longer have secrets that I have to hide. It’s all out there. The fact that people accept me no matter what I’ve done is really beautiful."
