In a revealing new interview, Demi opens up about her ‘inner demons’ and the intervention that saved her.

If you want to know what really sent Demi Lovato into treatment recently, look no further than the upcoming May 2011 issue of Seventeen magazine. We’ve got your first-look at her incredible interview, and trust us, it’s an eye-opener. “I basically had a nervous breakdown,” Demi, 18, admits. “I was really bad off.

She continues: “My parents and my manager pulled me aside and said, ‘You need to get some help.’ It was an intervention. I wanted freedom from the inner demons. I wanted to start my life over.”

Demi is also taking part in the “Love Is Louder” campaign, asking her fans to send in photos of themselves with the phrase “love is louder than the pressure to be perfect” on their hands.

It’s so great to see Demi feeling better and looking healthy. We’re sure she’ll be able to use her experiences to help troubled kids all over the world.

Erm she already acted crazy jason! the chick basically developed a coke problem, started dating mileys disgusting older brother, started under age drinking, dressing like a whore, started a fight with selena gomez -who is the only sane disney chick left- and then punched an innocent girl in the face. she then runs of to rehab without so much as an apology, comes back out, lies that she had a nervous breakdown when what she actually has was a coke problem and is now sucking up the sympathy and unfortunately the morons like yourself are buying this crap.

I heard that Demi got into the biz because her friend, Selena Gomez, introduced her to industry insiders as an amazing talent. Demi never really wanted it for herself but was just doing it for Selena. As time went on the pressure piled up. Something had to give.

Good to see her handling it in a responsible way and getting help instead of acting crazy like many starlets do.
