Demi Lovato appared on Ellen to talk about her breakdown, the rehab and her subsequent skyscraper-like rise to teen role model. Demi pretty much wasn't afraid to talk about anything discussing anorexia, bullying, drugs and alcohol. She also admitted that her 'personal life' was the trigger behind her break-down suggesting that her Joe Jonas breakup did have something to do with it.

Demi Lovato told Ellen, "I went from being at the highlight of my career. Having a movie about to come out or just come out and being on this tour. Having so much success. So many things were going great in my life and then all of the sudden my personal life just went down at crazy speeds.

"I had a negative break down and it changed my life forever but I'm glad that it did because if I had never gone into the treatment. I don't know if one, I'd even be sitting here today. Two, if I'd be alive today."

She later admitted, "I would be lying to you if I said I'd never experimented or self-medicated with drugs and alcohol."

We never thought we hear THOSE words coming out of a teen celebrity, especially an ex-Disney one!

Demi has made it her plan to be a new kind of role model for teen girls explaining, "When I grew up... it was the time in the tabloids when very, very skinny girls were on the cover of every magazine.... that's what I had to idolise I don't want that for young girls.

There needs to be a role model out there and for the first time in my life I actually feel like one.”
