| by

Demi Lovato graces the cover of Cosmopolitan‘s July issue where she opened up her battle with being bipolar, her future, her dating qualifications and much more!!

Here’s what the 19-year-old singer had to say:

On being diagnosed with bipolar disorder: “I felt relieved when I found out. Like I’m not completely crazy; there’s a medical reason for all of it. It’s a daily thing; you don’t get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own.”

On the direction she’d like her personal life to go in: “I want to be married with kids in 10 years.”

On her dating qualifications: “I don’t have many deal breakers. I’ve done so much in my life, it doesn’t feel right to judge other people. Oh, I know one quality I won’t tolerate. I would never be with a guy who is controlling.”

The magazine will hit the newsstand on June 5th.
