Demi Lovato invested a lot of time and effort into her job as a mentor and judge on Season Two of The X-Factor, but in the end, her group of "Young Adult" contestants were the first to be eliminated, with her highest scoring protege coming in sixth place.
Throughout the process, Demi was extremely defensive of the choices she made for her team, despite criticism from her fellow judge Simon Cowell, but now, she's ready to admit she might've made a mistake or two along the way.
"I don't always have it right all the time," she admits to Parade. "I think a part of mentoring and a part of growing up is just learning from your mistakes, as well, and admitting them and trying to change them, too. There are a lot of times when I didn't put my artist in the best clothing or had them sing the right song, but at the same time, it was a new experience for me and I learned a lot from it."

So, with the "great" experience she had the first time around, is Demi up for returning to Season Three? "I would love to," she says. "I had so much fun on that show. If they asked me to come back, I'd probably say yes." She adds that it won't be the same without Britney Spears and L.A. Reid, who've both left the show, but she understands that they need to put their own music careers first.
If Demi does head back for another season, the difference this time will be that it will coincide with her new music, which will follow up the single "Heart Attack." Although there's no set date for her album release yet, we're expecting it to drop later this year, which would be when The X-Factor airs. "I think this album is just all-around better than anything I've ever done," she tells the mag.
Even though Demi is still young, she seems to have her life pretty figured out at this point. "I think I'm going to work really, really hard for the next couple years and then, after that, just settle down and either have a family, or travel the world and do just a bunch of charity stuff, and just spend time with my family," she reveals. "I want to make sure I'm living my life to the fullest and make sure I give myself the opportunity to achieve my dreams, but I don't want to deprive myself of life, family and love."
