Demi Lovato Speaks Up On Her Eating Disorder Being Normalised

Singer-actress Demi Lovato has always been candid about her struggle with the eating disorder and mental health. The Disney star doesn’t shy away from sharing her experiences because she believes that talking about the same will normalise it eventually. In a recent interview with Bustle, Demi spilled the beans on how it was growing up as Disney star, and also how her old management team normalised her eating disorder. Speaking of the same, Lovato said, "I kind of looked around and had a moment where I was like, 'Wow. This is so terrifyingly normalised’.” Revealing more details Demi said that used to be given a watermelon with fat-free whipped cream instead of a birthday cake each year. Demi further added that she always had people watching her the night before a photo shoot to make sure that she didn’t binge or eat and be swollen the next day. Post her first stay in rehab in 2010, Lovato decided not to return to Disney Channel because she was scared that she would be silenced from sharing the challenges she had faced. Demi said, "I came out of the experience with the choice of talking about my struggles or my journey with the possibility of helping people, or keeping my mouth shut and going back to Disney Channel. And I was like that doesn't feel authentic to me. So I chose to tell my story.”
