Just this past Tuesday it was announced that Demi Lovato would be airing a special MTV documentary about her professional and personal life.
Today, we get a first look at the 19-year-old pop singer’s documentary Stay Strong, where she willfully opens up to the same cameras that once tore her apart.
Lovato admits in the documentary how at first, she was reluctant to accept the default title of a public ‘role model’ – a common label when the majority of your fan base is comprised of youth.
“I had so many issues underneath that needed to be taken care of," Demi admits, many of which included depression, cutting and an on-going eating disorder.
Though her darker days are behind her, Lovato remains conscious that every day is a battle, and that she is not ‘fixed.'
But in an effort to remedy her past and the past of the young fans that can relate to her story, she continues to fight the good fight.
“I continue to work my butt off," Demi says. “Because now I want to be a legitimate role model.”
Stay Strong airs March 6 on MTV at 10pm. Tune in!
