Demi Lovato admits she still has some low moments even after going to rehab. But, she feels great about herself and looks amazing on the cover of Seventeen magazine.

Demi Lovato looks healthy and gorgeous on Seventeen's August cover. However, after her infamous stint in rehab, she claims that while she's in a much better place now, there are days where she still has bad moments.

Lovato took over Seventeen magazine as Guest Editor and she also covered the popular teen publication. The former Disney star looks awesome and feels happy, but she admitted to still having some issues now and again.

"Since I went to treatment, there have been days when it's felt really easy, and I've felt great about where I am," Lovato revealed. "But then I have moments when it's not. That's life. You can't take your mind and your body into the shop and get it fixed. It doesn't come out repaired. It's not like a car. It takes time — pace yourself."

The singer/actress also admitted that she has dropped friends from her life because their negativity was bringing her down. "When you're growing and the people around you aren't, that's when you have to start shedding them." While she did not name anyone, Lovato did say she's dumped pals "a lot over the past few years, but it's been worth it," and she's happy with the friends she currently has.

"The people in my life today inspire me to keep being creative, to have fun, and to be a good person," she added.

Lovato also admitted how Twitter has often gotten the best of her and she regrets some of the messages she's posted. But, she's learned that when she feels bad about something these days she thinks about it first and keeps herself from tweeting every time she has a low moment. "Journal what you want to say, and then if you still feel the same later, that's when you can tweet it."

But, despite the bad tweets, the pal issues and the overall ups and downs, Lovato still loves to give back.

"I know that if my career were to fall apart tomorrow — even if I were to never have money or fame again — I'd still have value in my soul, because I know that I can have an effect on someone else's life."

Having just recently announced the dates of the North American leg of her concert tour, Lovato's world tour will kick off Sept. 6 in Baltimore, Maryland.
