Demi Lovato on 'Brutal' Fights with Miley

Demi Lovato is Seventeen magazine's February cover girl, and during the candid interview, she touches on her dark past, why she now has "nothing to be ashamed of", and her two very different friendships with fellow Disney alumni Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
"I'm not gonna lie. I was self-medicating," Demi says about her painful past that led to a stint in rehab and treatment for her bipolar and eating disorders in late 2010. "I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain."
But she now confidently assures people that her "stupid decisions" are behind her.
"I don't drink, I don't do drugs, I don't throw up after my meals, I don't starve myself," says Demi. There's nothing that I do that I feel ashamed of."
Most surprisingly, Demi gets real on the dynamics between her and teen queens Miley and Selena in the interview, and admits that not everything is sunshine and roses in the House of Mouse.
"There were two people [who were there for me]. No matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each others' lives," she first clarifies about both Miley and Selena. "[But Miley Cyrus and I] are very strong-headed, so when we fight, it's brutal and we're like, 'We're never going to be friends again!' Then two days later, we're like, 'I love you and I miss you!' Selena [Gomez] and I, we never fight. She's not a confrontational person at all."
Miley "dying to be a bad girl" Cyrus being the frenemy and sugary sweet Selena being the non-confrontational one?
You don't say.
