When Demi Lovato speaks up about confidence and overcoming adversity, people listen. That’s probably why Seventeen picked her as the cover star AND guest editor for their August 2014 issue. No matter how busy Demi is—be it serving as Grand Marshall of the L.A. Pride Parade or heading to tonight’s Trailblazers Awards (airing June 26, 9 p.m. EST on Logo)—her position as an outspoken role model always remains her #1 priority. (Side note: Can we consider for a moment how she is only 21 years old? I can’t even deal.)

Unsurprisingly, Demi’s cover story is chock full of her personal bits of wisdom. “I used to think that confidence came from what other people thought about me, and boys and everything else,” she writes. “But now I realize that confidence comes from what I feel about myself, and reassuring myself that I can do whatever I want and be whoever I want.” PREACH.

Demi’s inspiring words pair perfectly with her styling for the shoot—we’re talking rainbow hair, red lips, and metal hardware galore. IDK about you, but we’re also picking up on some MAJOR Rosie the Riveter vibes here, particularly with all the head scarfs and industrial denim. We’re sure that uncanny resemblance was no accident because if there’s one motto Demi constantly personifies, it’s “WE CAN DO IT!”
