For the record, contrary to previous reports, Demi Lovato is not dating Niall Horan.

He's an "awesome, sweet guy," the singer tells the latest issue of Teen Vogue, but she isn't in a place where she wants to be dating anyone right now.

"I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be okay with being alone first," Lovato says. "I’m really happy right now. I never thought it was possible to be happy because of how depressed I was my entire life. But I feel so incredible. It’s like I’m living in a dream.”

We're so happy to hear that!

Elsewhere in the interview, Lovato discusses The X Factor and the importance of her friends. A couple excerpts:

On serving as a mentor: “There’s so much more to it than just being a talented singer. I’m going to help them mentally prepare for everything that’s coming… The second I became more centered and aware of who I am, my performances got better, and I was better able to relate to people.

On the personal affecting the professional: "For a long time, I was pretending to be someone that I wasn’t, and I was miserable. When I came out and said, ‘I’m human, I’ve got problems, but I’m willing to share them,’ that’s when I started to really connect. I’ve just begun working on my fourth album, and I want to do that in my music too. I’m tired of songs that don’t have much emotion in them.”

On her loved ones: “I’m consistently busy, but I make sure I spend a lot of time with my friends and family. I did kind of a friend cleanse right after rehab, where I weeded out people who didn’t have my best interests at heart. Now I have friends who love me for who I am and don’t care about what I’m doing. Most of them aren’t in the industry. Some of them don’t even know my songs!”

Demi: Now you're thinking...Just be careful that you don't let your negative experiences make you TOO jaded,ok? Life and it's plethora of experience's(in all their varieties and aspects)can indeed be very beautiful,so long as you don't let the negative take control and do your driving for you. There's nothing wrong with being a little cautious now-and-again,but too much can ruin things for you just as fast as not enough,hear? It's learning when, where, and how much, caution to use that is a big part of growing-up...And it looks like you are well on your way now,doll...Keep up the good work,D'...later all; Hollywood---out...

I'm very uncoordinated. I'm surprised I don't fall onstage more.
