Demi Lovato broke her silence regarding her overdose last year and opened up about all the obstacles she has had to overcome.
During the 2019 Teen Vogue‘s Summit in Los Angeles, the 27-year-old made a rare appearance and spoke to the crowd about her struggles.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lovato revealed to Teen Vogue editor in chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner, that she was “a little nervous” about the interview.
The singer further revealed, “I’ve changed a lot. I’ve gone through a lot. What a lot of people don’t realize is that I’m actually an extremely sensitive person. I am human, so be easy on me. And I’m so tired of pretending like I’m not human. That’s one thing that I won’t do anymore. When you say stuff, it affects me. I’m human. I try not to look, but I see it.”
The former Disney star also talked about how she sees herself differently now. Saying, “I see someone that’s overcome a lot. I genuinely see a fighter. I don’t see a championship winner in there, but I see a fighter and I see someone that’s going to continue to fight no matter [what] challenges are thrown their way.”
She further added, “Genuinely I just want people to remember that I’m a singer. I think that a lot of the things I’ve been through kind of outshined my successes in the music industry or acting now. I just want people to remember that that’s what I want to give to the world so please focus on that and not the other things.”
“Everyone’s so quick to cancel everybody and I’m really really tired of it, to be honest. People just make mistakes,” she also added.
Furthermore, Demi Lovato also updated her fans about her upcoming projects and new music. She revealed, “I have new music coming.” Adding to the screaming crowd, “I didn’t say when. It’s important to remember that I am so cautious this time around of jumping back into things. I’ve really decided to take my time with things, so when the time is right to release new music, I will put it out there. … I am dying to release new music.”
Lovato also opened up about “the consequences that come with fame”. But added that she “wouldn’t change the direction of my life for anything.” Also saying, “I would never regret anything. I love the person that I am today.”
The singer was reportedly hospitalized in 2018 after a drug overdose.
