“I’m honored to portray a character that’s representing this chapter in our society,” Lovato said of her role. “Being true to your sexuality and yourself is becoming the norm.”
Having dealt with mental illness and self-image issues, Lovato says she no longer worries about her “problem areas.”
“I don’t have the body of a model or Barbie. My main thing about being in the spotlight with my fans is, I want to be real to them. I have my problem areas, but I’m happy in my skin right now. I’m not going to sacrifice my mental health to have the perfect body.”
