Who he wants to be for a change of perspective.
Part of that innings, Demi said, is about identifying how to accept herself where she is today, rather than trying to change yourself to fit a certain mold.

Exactly what she wants from life.
“Over the past five years, I have learned that life is not worth living unless you are living for yourself. If you are trying to be someone you are not, or you are trying to
Make other people happy, it’s not going to work for long, “she said.”
If you want to color your hair purple, then color your hair purple. If you want to love someone Of the same sex, love of same-sex. Be yourself and don’t be afraid of what people think. ”

She forgot what she wants to know the most. That said, Demi confirmed that she was coming up with new music – but she did not say when.
“I have new music coming in. I didn’t say then – now I’m teasing you. It’s important to remember that I’m very cautious to jump back into things this time.”
