'People grow apart,' the singer tells Andy Cohen.
Demi Lovato is a role model, but she knows she’s not perfect.The 22-year-old is on the cover of Fault and she’s talking all about her status as a role model.

In the interview with the magazine, Demi revealed, “I pride myself in being a role model but I’m not perfect.” The singer also opened up about her new album and talked about the charities she’s involved in! Read on for more details!

Demi’s definitely struggled over the years, personally and professionally. But, now she’s learning how to accept herself and embracing her status in the public eye. Demi told Fault, “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.”

Now, Demi’s starting a new phase in her life and working on her next album. Talking about the album, Demi revealed, “Everything that happened on the album happened organically. Nothing was really planned in terms of ‘I want a dance song’ or anything like that- it just kind of happened! It’s exciting to show people a different side of myself.”

One side of Demi that people should be aware of is her charitable side. Demi’s gotten involved with many charity projects in order to give back and help others. She told Fault, “Well these projects were really born out of my relationship with my fans, where they are able to look up to me no matter what they’re going through. I really like being there for them in that way. I pride myself in being a role model but I’m not perfect- I curse like a sailor and I sometimes make mistakes but at the same time I want to be what I know my little sister and that younger generation needs.”

We’re glad to see Demi continuing on such a positive path. We can’t wait to hear her new album!
