Demi Lovato On Britney Spears: We Have A Connection

July 17, 2012 By:

Since Demi Lovato and Britney Spears are the resident newbies on “The X Factor” everyone wants to know what their relationship is like.

Do they bond over both going to rehab? Is Britney jealous of Demi because she’s young? Is Demi jealous of Britney because she gets paid more? So many questions, good thing Demi did an interview with where she answered fans Twitter questions.

“Britney is such a sweet girl! We’ve gone through a lot of the same things, so we have a connection,” says Lovato.

And by “gone through a lot of the same things” she means, “has issues.” C’mon, let’s address the elephant in the room.

Speaking of issues, fans wanted to know how Demi overcame her eating disorder and self-harming impulses and Demi admits that realizing she was bipolar helped her overcome her problems.

“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. When I got diagnosed, my life made more sense.”

Demi claims that her life is better now that she “makes time for myself and meditates.”

So far, Demi loves her gig on “The X Factor,” saying, “It’s so much fun! I root for everyone. I mean, it’s not the best feeling when you’re watching someone and cringing. But when a person’s confidence is magnetic, I don’t even have to hear her to think, Oh, this girl has got something.”

However, with all this positive change in Demi’s life, the one thing that fell to the wayside is her relationship with Selena Gomez, “Selena and I aren’t as close as we used to be, but she’ll always have a place in my heart.”
