Demi Lovato has had quite the week -- involving a big announcement she would be making an exit from her hit TV show, Sonny With a Chance in order to focus on her music. A rep for Disney released a well-wish statement in support of the 18-year-old's big decision saying, "She is a talented young woman and our hearts are with her as she continues to take action to improve her health and bounce back from adversity."
Demi also brings to light the topic of teen bullying and how it played a big part in her life, even being one of the main factors that caused her to seek treatment. Lovato explains, "I literally didn't know why they were being so mean to me and when I would ask them why they would just say 'Well, you're fat.' I was bullied because I was fat." This bullying caused Demi to maintain an unhealthy relationship with food over the years.
Expressing she is ready to move on from her issues, Demi proves she is all about fighting back and helping others as she recently teamed up with Seventeen magazine and the The JED Foundation for a PSA titled, "Love is Louder Than the Pressure to be Perfect." The movement focuses on helping young girls deal with the struggles and pressures of being perfect in their every day lives.
Way to go Demi -- using what she's learned to reach out and help others is what we love to see from her!
