Kelly continued: ‘Especially as a woman, it’s like, “Don’t let ’em see you sweat.”‘

She added: ‘I just love that you’re open about that because not everybody is as vulnerable at being like that and I think it’s helpful for your fans because I know for a meet and greet, you probably get people saying that “I do too. ” 

Kelly said: ‘Man, thank for just being open in your songs and being open with everybody because I felt like this was just me and like knowing that somebody else going through it makes you not feel alone and so depressed about it, so thank you for doing that. It’s really hard.’

Demi responded: ‘You were, like, the first idol that I ever had. I wouldn’t be the artist – or even the person that I am, with being so outspoken and vulnerable and fearless – if I hadn’t had you to look up to, so I thank you for that.’

Kelly said: ‘I think the thing about it is even though your saying “oh your strong, courageous” all those things, I’m not all the time. Its takes work, Like I think that’s the thing everybody looks at us like, even though you overcome something, they’re like, “Ok she’s already overcome that.” No, no. That’s a daily effort – trying to be positive.’

‘And it’s not like a given, like your just over it like you went to some magical therapy session and its over. I think that’s a daily thing you work at and I think I work at.’
