Why did she cut herself back in the day? "There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin – that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode… I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear."

How is she recovering? "I make time for myself and meditate. I've spent the past two years getting over an eating disorder and issues like self-harming and bipolar disorder. I have to work on this stuff every day. I'm reminded of that whenever I eat or feel down."

What is her new perception of beauty? “I used to feel my most beautiful when I was on the red carpet or at events or something where I’m all dolled up. Now I feel like the moment when I feel most beautiful is when I’m able to hang out with a guy without my makeup on or lay on the beach with no makeup on and not even worrying about what my hair or what I look like before I fall asleep."

How does she feel about her fellow X-Factor judges? “Britney is such a sweet girl! We’ve gone through a lot of the same things, so we have a connection. Simon’s so funny and so cool, and LA - he’s really awesome."

Don't put it on others. @alissandra & @shay - keep up the great work, you've every reason to be proud!


i did this too i cut my self cause of bullying and weight issue and make up . i know it sounds harmful. but you guys don't know what its like to be bulled cause you guys never been .i got threw it by listening to Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, demi lovato, beyonce Knowles, Jill Scott, and so much more . i realize its the inner beauty that counts not whats on your face , cause that's only a mask the real you is from the heart. don't give up on someone who says you cant do this or that cause you can make a difference if you only knew how powerful you become . its called life lessons deal with it and move on .

This duck face needs to go on.. She should b helpin teens in mental hospitals instead of 'dishing' about cutting her lame self. Her reasons for cutting sound pretty made up as well.. Like maybe it didnt happen. I wish people would stop making up extreme shit for fame. Plz..


She sounds like a mental mess.


She is beyond gorg and I am so proud of her and she is such an inspiration to me :)
