Demi Lovato claims that rehab helped her shed her Disney image

Demi Lovato has been in the public eye since she was just a girl, and is now opening up about her life as a Disney star.

In a recent interview alongside Nick Jonas, the musical duo spoke about how they shed their Disney image. 

The transition from child star into an adult entertainer was no easy task for Nick Jonas. 

Nick said that he found it difficult to disassociate himself with his former band and pursue his solo career. 

However, for Demi, the process of "growing up" was easier because of her stint in rehab. 

"For me, the transition was a little bit easier because I didn't have to do anything to break out of the Disney mould. It's a lot easier when you just go to rehab."

Demi spent time in a rehabilitation centre six years ago for emotional and physical issues, and came out the other side a new person. 

The 24-year-old singer said that she wanted to show the public who she really was after rehab.

Demi didn't want to be "a stereotypical Hollywood starlet that goes to rehab and falls back into the trap of the things that got her there."

You go girl!
