Singer and actress Demi Lovato has revealed how she believes that television and movies are giving young girls the wrong idea about how they should look. Demi admitted that she was bullied as a youngster and gave advice to those who are being bullied.
Lovato explained to Daybreak, "I feel as if TV and movies are now glorifying an unhealthy body image which puts a lot of pressure on young girls who are trying to find themselves."
She added, "A lot of girls that are young are insecure and they look to the media to see what she should look like. The film and TV industry should take more responsibility. As much as it hurts to be bullied, always rise above it, vocalise what's going on. You can't keep it inside, it's dangerous to let emotions bottle up."
Demi continued, "A lot of people ask me, 'Do you think it's because you started so young?' I say, 'No, because the problems were starting when I was 12 years old'. I was bullied when I was 12, that's when I got really sick. It's been going on a while now, but finally I've gotten help."
