In a recent interview with Mamamia, the 24-year-old singer got real on why she would only surround herself to guys early on in her career. "In my work environment, I used to only surround myself with men," Lovato told Mamamia, and added, "I only had guys in my band, and I toured with guys, and my tour manager was a guy, and this and that."

But after realizing she needed to change, the brunette beauty has since made an effort to be around more women. "I made a specific change. There was a time I used to say that I just didn't get along with girls," the singer revealed.

"I reevaluated why I didn't get along with girls, and I think it's because I didn't really have any in my life that I trusted. Now I've made it a point to surround myself with strong women, and it's really made a difference in my life."

According to the “Skyscrapper” superstar, this life experience has helped her connect to her character, Smurfette, in her latest film Smurfs: The Lost Village. "I really relate to Smurfette, because I was the only female for a little bit [in my world]," she told Mamamia. "I had to make changes in my life to surround myself with influences and people that I could relate to. I'm really grateful that I did."

The Mexican-American singer has definitley come a long way from shutting female friends out to embracing women empowerment. You go, chica!
