The “X Factor” star explains, “Just because you’re cutting, [it] doesn’t mean you’re suicidal.”

She admits that she started at 11 or 12 years old, hoping, “Maybe this will fix the pain.”

While it began as a cry for help, Lovato started to cut in places where “no one would see.”

“Sometimes when you are feeling so numb, just by being depressed… you just want to feel,” reveals the singer.

Check out what Lovato has to say about the very serious issue in the video below.
