Demi Lovato On Rapping, Beauty Obsessions, + Dealing With The Hard Stuff — Read Bonus ‘NYLON’ Quotes Now!

Demi Lovato in 'NYLON'

We all know Demi Lovato was NYLON‘s super cool December/January cover girl — we read the article, checked out the gorgeous photo shoot, and stole some major style inspiration in the process — but, believe it or not, that wasn’t all the mag’s sit-down with Demi had to offer. That’s right, you can read some more previously unseen interview material from writer Kate Williams’ chat with the 21 year-old superstar — everything from where her determination comes from to delirious freestyle rapping to her faith. Check it out below now:

On dreaming big:
“I was like, ‘I want to be the youngest person to ever win a Grammy, to ever win an Oscar.’  It ended up not happening–and that’s totally fine–but I was so determined at such a young age and it really stuck with me.”

On music genres:
“It depends on the style of the song. Some times I even sing country music and I don’t necessarily have the full-blown twang, but I grew up in Texas and it just comes out. The only thing that I don’t do is rap–unless I’m just really, really tired. Then it just comes out; I get really delirious, and then I just start freestyling.”

On her beauty obsessions:
“My favorite look is obviously the blue hair, or else I wouldn’t have it right now. And I love the blonde; I feel like it shows the lighter side of me, and when I have a good tan and I’m refreshed, I feel like it looks better on me. And I’ve always loved a red lip.”

On dealing with everything life throws at you:
“As hard as life gets sometimes, I believe in God and one of the things that keeps you going is that God doesn’t put you through anything you can’t handle. When I went to rehab, I was like, ‘This is hard and I’m suffering from emotional pain, but that’s not going to kill me;  what’s going to kill me is if I continue to act out on those emotional behaviors,’ so I decided to face it head on.”
