Demi Lovato has revealed that she plans to stay single for a while to work on herself and has denied rumors that she's dating One Direction's Niall Horan.

The 19-year-old X Factor judge opened up to Teen Vogue about her friendship with the boy-bander.

"He's a really awesome, sweet guy," she told the magazine. "But he's not my boyfriend… I'm in a place right now where I really need to focus on myself."

In fact, Demi says that she has no intention of dating anyone for now as she continues to recover from her eating disorder and emotional issues that landed her in rehab last year.

"Obviously, I'm still going to like people - or love them - but I need to not be in a relationship for a while because I need to be OK with being alone, first," the feisty starlet shared.

"I'm really happy right now. I never thought it was possible to be happy because of how depressed I was my entire life. But I feel so incredible. It's like living in a dream."

Demi says since leaving rehab she has made some major changes to her life but all for the better.

"I did kind of a friend cleanse right after rehab, where I weeded out people who didn't have my best interests at heart," she revealed.

"Now I have friends who love me for who I am and don't care about what I'm doing. Most of them aren't in the industry. Some of them don't even know my songs!"

And for what Demi wants to achieve with her new music, she says that she doesn't want to just have catchy tunes on the radio that fade away after a few weeks.

"I want to make something that people will listen to for a while, rather than something that's just trendy," Demi said. "I feel like I've grown as a person, and I want my music to grow with me."
