London: 'Skyscraper' hitmaker Demi Lovato prefers to be a role model. The 'Skyscraper' hitmaker, who entered rehab in 2010 for a variety of issues, said she can empathise with those people who choose to shy away from setting an example, reported Contactmusic.
"I really embraced the whole role model thing, because when I was younger I realised that shying away from it and denying that I was gonna be a role model only made me resent the fact that people were putting boundaries on me of things I can and cannot do.
"I think that's why a lot of people shy from it, rightfully so. People sometimes just want to live their lives. At that moment, I knew I was doing a lot of things that weren't right and weren't role model-like until the day that I saw everything in the bigger picture where my voice," she said.
