Demi Lovato Jokes She Has ''PTSD'' From Her Disney Days
Demi Lovato will be the first to admit that her Disney days weren't exactly theeasiest moments in her life.
In fact, in a joint interview with Nick Jonasfor Billboard magazine, the 23-year-old pop star can't help but joke that her time as a Disney star still haunts her to this day.
"We joked around that it was Disney High, except we all were shooting shows and really overworking," she explained. "I joke that I sometimes have PTSD after leaving the channel, because if my schedule starts to get too busy, I rebel and I get bitchy."
Interestingly enough, she was the one pushing herself to work as much as she did back then. "I always wanted to be the next Shirley Temple, to be the youngest person to ever win a Grammy and an Oscar," she admitted. "It didn't turn out that way. I don't regret it, but I probably won't allow my kids to get into the industry unless it's on their terms."
Of course, her time on Disney also helped her meet her bestie and tour-mate Nick—who she says has helped her through a lot in life, despite a bit of a rocky history.
As you may recall, Demi left the tour with the Jonas Brothers in 2010 after punching a dancer. Needless to say, Nick was pissed.
"It was bad. On top of losing a friend, we have seven dates left, it's a big production, people are expecting to see Demi and that's not going to happen," he said of the incident. "I was angry, because a week before I pleaded with her to confide in me. We talked on the plane for two hours."
But Demi never did. She actually doesn't even remember that.
"I distanced myself as I was getting involved with self-destructive things," she added. "After treatment, I had to have some time sober before I wasn't embarrassed to talk to him. Nick says I sent text messages, but I don't remember s--t. The first time we saw each other since that tour was my [2012 Los Angeles] concert at The Greek. We caught up right before the show, then performed. It was an emotional reunion—I got one of my best friends back."
Now Demi and Nick—who promise they have never and will never be romantically involved—help each other through all the ups and downs of life, including relationships.
