Demi Lovato Enjoys Some Retail Therapy (PHOTOS)
Demi Lovato has had quite the busy week, and she topped it all off by treating herself to some shopping and a salon visit.
The actress/singer was snapped out in Los Angeles wearing cigarette-style jeans, a black blazer, scarf and flip-flops. Demi probably needed a break after the number of interviews she's been doing. Just this week, the Disney star not only announced that she was leaving her TV show Sonny with a Chance, but she also revealed that while in a treatment facility for an eating disorder, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She told People.com:
"I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar. … Looking back it makes sense. There were times when I was so manic, I was writing seven songs in one night and I’d be up until 5:30 in the morning.”Prior to her admittance of having bipolar disorder, Demi’s chatted with Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts Wednesday, disclosing how getting bullied led to an eating disorder and bouts with cutting. “I literally didn’t know why they were being so mean to me. And when I would ask them why, they would just say, ‘Well, you’re fat.”
Now, Demi seems to be in a much better place and hopes her story can help others like her. She said on GMA, “The real reason why I’m sitting down with you is to open up the eyes of so many young girls, that it doesn’t have to be this way.”
