The word badass comes to mind when we think of former Disney star Demi Lovato. We've seen her on screen (oh, those were the Camp Rock days) and we've heard her singing chops.

In a recent interview with Complex magazine, we got to know the 23-year-old pop star a little bit more. Here are the seven things about her that we never knew before.

1. Cool For The Summer does not sound like Katy Perry's I Kissed a Girl.
"The song literally sounds nothing like "I Kissed a Girl". Well, I used the word "cherry." How dare I use that word. It's definitely not a rip-off or anything," she said.

2. She doesn't really know Justin Bieber.
"He's actually a nice guy. I don't really know him that well, but he seems to have grown up," said Demi. "He looks like he's maturing. But, you know, when you're young and you get older, you change and people change. You have things in common, and then all of a sudden, you don't. It's just a part of life."

3. She doesn't want people to feel sorry for her.
"I'm just 23. I never want people to feel sorry for me, and I also think that there's always someone who has it worse. Not to invalidate what I've been through or what I'm feeling, but there's somebody who has it worse, and I've always got to remember that," she said.

4. The Kardashians are Demi's curve inspiration figures.
"For so long, it was the heroin-chic 90s supermodel thing, and I feel like, when the Kardashians came into the picture, people started to look at it because it was different," said Demi. "Watching them really helped me learn to accept my body image, too. I'm not naturally super thing. I have an athletic body. I just have to embrace that."

5. She just wants to be nominated for a Grammy, you guys.
"I know that I'm capable of getting there. I just want people to see it finally," she said. "I just want to be nominated for one. You can't go higher than the Grammys in the music industry. That was a huge goal for this album. I watched the Grammy nominations last year and I was like, "I want to be there so bad." It really gave me that kick in the ass to make music that was worthy of it."

6. Iggy Azalea is the realest.
"I saw her at all the Jingle Ball shows. Then we got to actually hang, and we just became close," explained Demi. "She's so awesome. She's very, very, very, real. What you see is what you get. I think sometimes that pushes people away, but that's what I admire about her. She's the furthest thing from fake."

7. Demi wants an outdoor wedding (dear future husband, take note).
"I don't know if it would be in a barn, but I think I'd definitely want an outdoor wedding, with lights hanging in the trees."
