Inside the issue, the 20-year-old is so grateful for not being fired from X Factor like the other judges that aren’t Simon Cowell that she’s having her accountant send the receipts (she has receipts dating back to 2012). She says Cowell is the nicest kind of a**hole you’ll ever meet.

On the previous season of X Factor no one watched, Simon Cowell was unabashed about hiring two unstable former Disney stars; one fresh out of rehab and another who’s too medicated to do her job. He, and the audience, was honest about hoping for a meltdown that never came and Cowell openly pouted that both handled the stress and sucked all the entertainment out of the show. But he’s welcomed back Demi Lovato, who promised to stay away from television immediately prior to signing the previous deal and admitted the show compromised her sobriety immediately prior to signing this deal. ‘I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year,’ Cowell said. ‘She’s a superstar in her own right and was a fantastic mentor last year. Even though she can be really, really annoying, I truly enjoyed working with her and so did the artists.’
X Factor took a bet on the mental health of two former Disney stars and lost in the ratings because both stayed on their meds and did their jobs. With varying degrees of success, of course, but the producers openly bet that one or both of Britney Spears and Demi Lovato would suffer some sort of relapse or breakdown that would be good for ratings. But ratings tanked and both girls are probably going to be replaced next season. At least Lovato can admit that she probably made a mistake doing the show at all. Back in May 2012, Lovato told a British magazine: ‘I need to be secure in my body before I go back in front of the camera. Anyone in recovery from an eating disorder would find that triggering, and I’m not ready.’ And then she forgot about all that a month or two later when she signed on to X Factor for seven-figures. Nearly a year later, and she admits she returned to work too soon after getting out of treatment. She tells the Spring 2013 issue of Cosmo on Campus: ‘I don’t think I was ready when I started on The X Factor. In an ideal situation I would have maybe waited a year or more… I dived into work really quickly, and maybe that wasn’t the best idea at the time, but the place I am in today is so much better than I could have ever imagined, so I’m really glad.’ She continues: ‘I have spent the last year focusing on myself and it’s been incredible. More has come out of the past year than in my entire career so far and I truly believe it was because I was taking care of myself.’

Rather than throwing Mickey Mouse under the bus as the proto-Pimp Momager he is, Demi Lovato is taking responsibility for her actions which sits about as well with me as Lindsay Lohan driving herself around. I need these people to blame other people or I’m out of a job. STOP BEING ALL GROWN UP LIKE YOU’RE PEOPLE, LOVATO! YOU’RE NOT PEOPLE! Anyways, she’s blaming herself (and her handlers in a previous interview) for turning to cocaine, self-harm, and drink. Although she’s blaming no one for this outfit. She told Slate Magazine: ‘You can’t prevent anyone from going down the wrong road. If they’re going to have an eating disorder, they’re going to have an eating disorder. If they’re going to do this, they’re going to do that… I don’t really think fame has a lot to do with it. I think it adds some pressure and sometimes it makes the problem a little bit worse. But for me, I had been struggling with those issues beforehand, and unless you’re in a good place when you start working, I think that it’s kind of inevitable for these things to happen.’ Photos of Lovato in Miami yesterday.
