"It’s a daily thing. I treat it with medication. Not everybody does that, but for me it works," the former "X-Factor" judge told Cosmo for Latinas. "That’s what works for me – medicating, checking in with people, being honest, and being grateful for things.”

Lovato, 21, has gone to rehab to cope with addiction, has always wanted to establish an open dialogue with her fans, especially young ones. Telling Cosmo that she wants to stand for "positivity and light and happiness," to help inspire young girls who may be looking for a star to "idolize."
