Demi Lovato has never shied away from talking about her personal struggles, especially when it comes to her eating disorder. However, there has always been one subject she did not want to talk about; drugs. Demi never would address the rumors about her alleged drug problem, until now. The 19-year-old Disney star opened up to Fabulous, a British magazine.
“I was depressed. I would come offstage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to re-create that feeling, to stay ‘up.’ Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or club. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says ‘no’. That’s why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me.” She told the magazine.
Wow, honesty is the best policy…right? It’s good to see that she is finally talking about it. She likes to talk about her eating disorder because it could help people going through the same situation. Well, this could do the same thing. She could be saving someone’s life just by talking about it and proving that you can get through it.
Hopefully she’ll continue to talk about it and continue on her long road to recovery.
