Demi Lovato has had quite a year! After leaving rehab following a tumultuous 2010, the former Disney star quit Sonny with a Chance, and hit the pavement promoting her new album Unbroken and her hit song “Skyscraper.” 

As for her personal life, Demi has been seen cuddling up to That ’70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama. She opened up to Glamour magazine about her ideal man, saying:

“Someone who’s not only supportive in my career but also in my [emotional] recovery. It’s a big responsibility dating me. Because I come with a little bit of baggage, you know? I’m completely open. I’m honest about the journey I’ve been on, so I definitely don’t take dating lightly anymore. And they have to make me laugh!”

Demi was in treatment for a number of things following a breakdown while on tour, one of her issues being with cutting. When asked about reports that her tattoos are covering up her scars, she answered openly, saying: 

“I think scars are like battle wounds—beautiful, in a way. … My tattoos say ‘Stay strong.’ ‘Stay’ on one [wrist] and ‘strong’ on the other. Now I’m able to look at them and be thankful for being alive. I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over.”

As for her triumphant hit song, Demi said she recorded “Skyscraper” for all the haters out there. She told Glamour, “It’s to every person who tried to bring me down. Everyone has the bully or the mean girl or the ex-boyfriend who tried to bring them down. For me, I think of the people who really weren’t there for me when I went into treatment. It was a really dark time for me because I had only a few people—I had surrounded myself with so many artificial friendships. It’s about those people too.”
