Demi Lovato says she was a fake “role model” before checking into rehab for emotional and physical issues in 2010.

The “X Factor” judge tells the August issue of Canada’s Fashion magazine, “I learned that ignorance stood in the way of my insight. I wasn’t really being honest with the way I used to live.”

Lovato says, “I was pretending to be a role model during the day and turning into a wild child at night.”

The singer-actress also opens about how she’s gradually learned to overcome bullying, saying that in the past, “I could remember word for word what my bullies said to me… just degrading things that hurt me and affected self-esteem. It affected the way I look at girls my age. I used to fear them.”

Now, Lovato says she a much stronger and better person for having conquered her demons.

The mag hits newsstands on July 8.
