Demi Lovato looks forward to setting “the record” for her drug overdose in 2018 in her new documentaries.
On the heels of the trailer for Demi Lovato: Dancing with the devil When it was released, in which the singer first revealed that she had suffered three strokes and a heart attack in the midst of OD, she spoke on Monday via the YouTube document Ellen DeGeneres Show – and their hope that it will help others.
“What’s great is that we live in a time when nobody is perfect, and we won’t get role models if we watch people not make mistakes,” said the 28-year-old singer “What Other People Say” to presenter Ellen DeGeneres. “We will meet and learn from our role models who have overcome their deepest, darkest struggles.”
As she was filming the four-episode document, she said, “First I wanted to set the record straight. At the time there were a lot of stories going around that didn’t know exactly what had happened. I just wanted to tell the world, ‘Hey, this happened I got through. And hopefully that can help you too. ‘Because this trip was so wild, but I’ve learned so much and I can’t wait to show it to the world. “
And she thanked Lovatics – and beyond – for their tireless support.
“The world loved and accepted me so much that I tell my story,” she said. “There was so much love and support.”
During the interview, she also talked about cutting her hair in November, saying that she did it on her way to self-improvement.
“I feel so free,” she said of her shaved work, which she dyed purple, and “more authentic to me”.
Lovato shared, “I always hid behind my hair. I talked a lot about my past because I was recovering from my eating disorder and I used my hair to hide behind it. It covered my body. When I started doing all this work on myself, I thought, what’s something I’ve been holding onto all my life that I need to let go of? It was that. “
She concluded, “I feel more now.”
The March 23 documentaries revolve around the shocking overdose that nearly killed her in July 2018. Months earlier, she secretly started again after six years of sobriety.
“I had three strokes. I had a heart attack,” she said in the new trailer. “My doctors said I had five to ten minutes.”
At a press event promoting the project, she also announced that after the overdose on July 24, 2018, “I’ve had brain damage and I’m still studying the effects today. I don’t drive because I have it.” blind spots on my vision. And I also had difficulty reading for a long time. It was a big deal when I could read from a book what was like two months later because my vision was so blurry. “
The project will include interviews with Lovato’s friends, including Elton John and Christina Aguilera, as well as family members who were by their side throughout the ordeal.
