Demi Lovato has no rules when it comes to being a rulebreaker.
“It’s not intentional and that’s what’s awesome – people see it,” said Lovato upon receiving the inaugural “Rulebreaker” award at Billboard’s Women in Music event on Dec. 11 at Cipriani Midtown in New York. “I’m excited to show people you can be yourself and people will appreciate it.”
The “Confident” singer spoke to the room of music executives after delivering a powerful performance of her breakup ballad “Stone Cold.”
“I’m not a public speaker by any means, I’m a singer, and so this might be a little awkward,” she said nervously, but thankful for the award “because for the first time in my life and my career, I’ve grown to know who I am as a person and as an artist”
Lovato spoke candidly about not fitting in when she was younger, punching a boy in the face who said “Girls suck!” and praying with her band before performances that their collaboration will inspire just one person.
The award was presented to Lovato by Fifth Harmony and featured video comments by Nick Jonas.
Billboard Women in Music 2015 airs on Lifetime, Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. ET.

NEW YORK — Ariana Grande has pulled out of the MLB All-Star Concert because of her wisdom teeth and Demi Lovato is stepping in.
Grande’s representative said Wednesday the singer would not perform Saturday at the Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati because she had some of her wisdom teeth removed Monday.
A representative for Lovato confirmed that she would perform Saturday instead.
The free concert during the 2015 MLB All-Star Week will also include pop-rock band Rixton, best known for the hit “Me and My Broken Heart.” The 86th MLB All-Star Game will air July 14 on Fox from the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.
Lovato released a new single, “Cool for the Summer,” last week.
