Demi Lovato shows off her blonde locks on the cover of the August 2012 issue of SELF magazine. In the issue, the 19-year-old extremely candid with what she discusses including cutting, rehab, her eating disorder and her bi-polar diagnosis. She also opens up about getting healthy, being happy in her life now and her new role on X-Factor.

On Britney Spears: “Britney is such a sweet girl! We’ve gone through a lot of the same things, so we have a connection.”

How have friends helped you get healthy? “I surround myself with people who make positive decisions and who have more interests than wanting to go to clubs and get wasted. My friend and I look out for each other, and I love just inviting everyone over to watch TV. I like Law & Order–except it makes me want to go out and inspect everyone on the street to see if they are a serial killer!”

Why did you go public about your eating disorder? “When I was younger, stick-figure thin was in and nobody was talking about eating disorders. I want girls to know that it’s OK when they grow up and their body changes. I want them to be aware that certain things they might do to lose weight can be dangerous—life-threatening, even.”

On Simon Cowell: Simon’s so funny and so cool, and LA—he’s really awesome. He seems really, really sweet so I’m excited to get to work with all of them. I was totally nervous about Simon, too. I was expecting him to be mean or something, because of American Idol, you know? He’s like so, just, real.
