Demi Lovato opens up to Seventeen about rehab, eating disorder

Demi Lovato tells Seventeen Magazine she entered rehab last year for treatment relating to an eating disorder. “There have been times when I definitely have been tempted to get rid of my dinner,” she says in the magazine’s May issue. “But I will deal with it for the rest of my life because it's a life-long disease.”

Lovato, who stars on Disney’s “Sonny with a Chance,” entered rehab in November 2010 for “emotional and physical issues” and was released in March. She’s teamed up with Seventeen and The Jed Foundation to create a PSA addressing the pressure girls feel to be perfect. In the interview, she had this message for other teen girls: “If you are going through that dark period, go to your family and closest friends. . . . I wish I could tell every young girl with an eating disorder, or who has harmed herself in any way, that she's worthy of life and that her life has meaning. You can overcome and get through anything.”
