Posted Friday September 21, 2012 1:09 PM GMT

She’s made no secret of her personal struggles, and Demi Lovato gave fans some insight into her story during her interview with Katie Couric.

Opening up on “Katie,” the “Sonny with a Chance” babe began, “I remember being 3 years old in a diaper and rubbing my hand over my stomach, and I remember thinking in my head ‘I wonder if one day this will ever be flat?’”

Regarding the bullying she faced in her formative years, Demi noted, “It played more of a toll on me than if I was physically abused in school.”

“I’ve always said I wished that they had just hit me in the face and gotten it over with because what they said to me sticks to me to this day and it [turned] me into the person I am today,”

And as for her breakdown in 2010, Lovato explained, “I wasn’t really in control of my emotions at the time and I was just out of control and there’s no excuse for it but it definitely showed everyone I needed to get help and I think two days later I was checking into rehab.”
