At the age of 23, Demi Lovato is confident and she's not afraid to stand up for what she believes in.
She's political -- and not afraid to talk about tough issues. She's in love with a guy who helped her through a tough time in her life. And she's got a lot to say about pop music and performing music she believes in.
She's pretty cool right? Well, these are just a few of the reasons we are obsessed with Demi.
In the June/July issue of Latina Magazine, the beautiful and talented star shares how she's continuing to evolve into the kind of badass woman we wish we saw more of in Hollywood.
One of the biggest hot-button issues Demi delves into in the Latina interview is who she's supporting in the upcoming election: Hillary Clinton. Demi took her musical talents on the road and appeared at a fundraising event for the Democratic candidate in Iowa in January 2016 to show just how committed she is to getting Hillary into the White House.
"The reason 'I'm with her' is because out of everybody running, she is the most qualified and she will get s--- done," Demi told the magazine.
"I can hopefully help open people's eyes to how much racism is affecting our country and now infiltrating it in a sense where we might have an incredibly racist Republican candidate. It's terrifying to think that families can be, and sometimes are, separated on a daily basis," she added, clearly referencing some of the views held by polarizing Republican candidate Donald Trump.
But even if you don't support Hillary, Demi doesn't care -- she just wants to inspire political conversations with younger people and encourage them to get out and vote ... for whomever they're behind. How refreshing is that?
However, politics aren't the only thing on Demi's mind these days. She also has a lot to say about Kesha's lawsuit against Dr. Luke and female singers being empowered to make the type of music they want.
"I thought it was extremely brave of a pop star in the industry to come out and talk about that," Demi said about Kesha's plight. "I think women artists shouldn't compete -- we have to support each other."
As for the music Demi wants to make, she says she's over crafting tracks just to get radio hits and wants to focus on evolving her voice and growing as an artist. "I don't care about radio hits," Demi explained about the direction her music is moving in. "When you try hard for that, it doesn't happen. My voice is better now than it was a year ago. Now I can show people what I can do."
While she continues to grow into a mature, successful woman, Demi says she's been lucky enough to have the support and love of her longtime boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama.
"[Wilmer]'s very manly, and he can be stubborn like Latino men can, but he's protective and he cares so much and loves so hard. I've been blessed enough to have him in my life, and not just as my man, but also my best friend," he said.
Anyone else think Demi is the coolest lady in Hollywood?
