Demi Lovato Lashes Out At Rappers & Rockers

Demi Lovato has some strong, profanity-laden comments regarding the drug use of her fellow musicians, and them condoning it in their music.
The 20-year-old Skyscraper singer went on a rant to Cosmopolitan magazine, saying, "When I look at someone who's out there partying excessively or rappers rapping about doing drugs, who people look up to, and think, Oh that's a G; that's a gangster. I think, You're actually being a giant p***y."
Demi didn't stop there. She even went off on rock stars from music's past, telling the magazine, "Sorry, but those rockers in the '80s were the furthest thing from rock stars. They were so insecure and so lonely that they had to do these things to get them through the day. If you're spending your entire early 20s chasing the next party, what are you running away from? That's not a bada**. What's a bada** is when you can sit through your problems and feel emotions when you don't want to have them."
Admitting to her own struggles with cutting and bulimia, she adds, "There have been nights where I've had to sit on my hands, because I want to act out, because I physically can't sit still in the pain I'm dealing with, from looking back and being bullied or other things that happened. And now, as hard as it may be, I will do that. That's what makes me a bada**. Being a bada** is handling your s***."
