London: Actress Demi Lovato admits she was a poor role model because she had so many personal problems.
The "Skyscraper" singer used to get upset when young girls told her she was an inspiration to them because she knew her true life was different, reports femalefirst.co.uk
"Kids used to tell me, `You`re my role model.` And I`d want to shake them and be like, `Why?`," she said.
However, after seeking help for her problems, the 18-year-old believes she is now a person young people can look up to.
"I finally feel like I can inspire people. I can be proud of it," she said.
