I am a complete mother. I already have abandonment problems, so I don’t want to pass them on. “

The singer spoke to Demi Lovato about mental health at the Kelly Clarkson Show. Lovato has previously opened up about bipolar disorder diagnosis and her past with addiction. Clarkson praised Lovato for being outspoken about mental health.

“I love how open you are about mental health because I have similar problems,” he said, “and I have suffered from depression.” He added: “I think a lot of people, especially in the creative world, or just from childhood, you like to train and keep going and you can handle it.”

Lovato showered the first American idol winner with praise in return. “You were like the first idol I’ve ever had,” he said. “And I wouldn’t be the artist or even the person that I’m so open, vulnerable and brave if I hadn’t had to admire.”

Clarkson noted that she does not always have confidence. “I am not there all the time,” he said. “It takes work.” She noted that it is a “daily effort” to try to be positive.
