Demi Lovato talks being a role model

Demi Lovato wants to be a good role model for her fans.

The singer-and-actress entered a treatment facility last year, to help her deal with her emotional and physical issues, and now that she’s out and getting her life back on track, she feels it’s important to talk about it to help her fans.

“The more that people tell their story, the more therapeutic it becomes. Also, if I’m able to share my story and it helps someone, then I’ve done my part,” the 18-year-old said.

“My fans are dealing with some of the same issues. And if I am a role model, then I need to speak up … and be there for them.”
