Lovato poses for the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s September 2015 issue. In the interview
There are a lot of girls in pop. They have badass lyrics, but I feel like I’m the only person other than Rihanna and Nicki Minaj who isn’t afraid to say, ‘Try something on me and I’ll f–king beat your ass.’ There are people who can dress up and play the part, but their music doesn’t say it.
On her boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama:
The only times we ever broke up were when I was relapsing, whether it was drugs or in a bad place and rebelling against everybody, not just him… People say that relapses happen before you use. Your mind starts setting up the relapse before you take that drink or that first hit. The times we’d broken up, I had already gone to that place of, Yeah, this is what’s happening. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I just wanted to sabotage everything around me so that I could sabotage myself.

It means so much to me that I can maintain a healthy lifestyle no matter what I’m doing or where I am. It feels really freeing to know that it’s doable; I can live a happy life.
Glam Belleza Latina cover
Lovato appears on the cover of the Holiday 2014 issue of Glam Belleza Latina magazine. She talks about how social media effects her, advocating for mental health, and inner beauty.
[You] can be the most beautiful woman in the world and see yourself as hideous. You must love yourself. To look in the mirror and tell yourself that you’re a rock star, you know?
Lovato appears on the cover of issue 19 of Fault magazine. She talks about the sound of her record, her charity projects, and being a role model.
I use to get frustrated that just because I wanted to sing, I was automatically expected to be a role model. But I had to grow up and realise that no matter what I do I’m going to be somebody’s role model. It’s true what they say- “with great power comes great responsibility”- and everybody’s career is different but for me, I had to grow up and embrace it rather than resent it, as that only made me resent my career.
Lovato appears on the cover of the August 2014 issue of Seventeen magazine. She talks about her friends, fame, and twitter.
I’m impulsive when it comes to fighting back, but I’ve learned to reel it in. Tweeting without thinking does more harm than good. So take a second. Journal what you want to say, and then if you still feel the same later, that’s when you can tweet it.
Lovato appears on the cover of the December 2013/January 2014 issue of Latina magazine. She talks about her future, helping people get treatment, kissing Naya Rivera on Glee, and what she looks for in a guy.

Lovato appears on the cover of the August 2013 issue of Fashion magazine. She talks about dealing with double standards, moving to LA, and The X Factor.
The show made me a tougher critic and better empathizer. I understand artists a lot more now. I get scared for them because we if they don’t make the right decisions right now or if they don’t have the right people around them, they could put their careers in danger. What they never show [on X-Factor] is me backstage crying with certain contestants. I had to walk off a couple of times too because it gets too emotional for me. They never showed that.
Lovato appears on the cover of the June 2013 issue of Company magazine. She talks about her friends, her older sister, and her fellow X Factor judge Simon Cowell.
“He’s a grump. An old fart. But he has a heart that nobody gets to see. If he walked into this room, he’d treat everybody the same – he shakes everyone’s hand.

The amount of success that I’ve had, even just in the last six months, is incredible to me.
Lovato appears on the cover of the August 2012 issue of Self magazine. She talks about her X Factor co-judges, her perception of beauty, and being bipolar.
Finding out I had a real emotional disorder helped me put together the pieces of the puzzle. I remember being on my tour bus thinking, My life is so awesome right now, but I’m so depressed. Then, a few days later, I’d be on top of the world. It was really confusing. When I got diagnosed, my life made more sense.
Lovato appears on the cover of the February 2012 issue of Seventeen magazine. She talks about the problems she faced last year, how she’s doing today, and who was there for her during her tough time.
I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I don’t throw up after my meals, I don’t starve myself. There’s nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of.
Lovato appears on the cover of the December 2011 issue of Latina magazine. She talks about rehab, airing out her problems, and staying healthy.
I continue to have moments. I still think sometimes that I’m not strong enough and I need extra help. I can’t tell you how many people I have working with me in recovery. It’s good. It’s positive. [But] it’s a daily battle. Things can still get me down sometimes. But nothing keeps me down.
