Demi Lovato has never been one to keep her opinions to herself – and her latest interview is no exception.

Talking to Cosmopolitan, the Cool for the Summer singer spoke in detail about her relationship with long-term boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama and the status of the pop industry.

Speaking about her on-off romance, the singer said: "The only times we ever broke up were when I was relapsing, whether it was drugs or in a bad place and rebelling against everybody, not just him,

"People say that relapses happen before you use. Your mind starts setting up the relapse before you take that drink or that first hit. 

"The times we'd broken up, I had already gone to that place of, 'Yeah, this is what's happening'. I didn't realise it at the time, but I just wanted to sabotage everything around me so that I could sabotage myself."

Lovato also discussed her music career – describing herself as one of the few truly blunt female popstars in the industry today.

The 22-year-old explained: "There are a lot of girls in pop, they have badass lyrics, but I feel like I'm the only person other than Rihanna and Nicki Minaj who isn't afraid to say, 'Try something on me and I'll f**king beat your ass'.

"There are people who can dress up and play the part, but their music doesn't say it."
