Demi Lovato is one of the few stars who is as open and real as she is. The singer has been through a lot of ups and downs that have made her the great talent and clear inspiration that her millions of fans have always known she was. After more than 10 years in the entertainment and music business, we look back at where she started and how she became the vocal powerhouse she is today.
Demi got her start in acting in 2002 when she was cast as Angela on Barney & Friends (which saw her act alongside Selena Gomez, who portrayed Gianna.) A few years later, Demi shot to fame when she was in the TV movie Camp Rock on the Disney Channel in 2008. Even though it was hard for the young star to stand out next to the well-known Jonas Brothers, Demi was loved by the young audience, who knew she was a good singer as soon as she sang the first line of “This Is Me,” the song that made the movie a hit.
Demi started using drugs and alcohol at a young age. In 2009, she tried cocaine for the first time and quickly “fell in love” with it. At 18, she went to a treatment center because she hurt herself, had an eating disorder, and had other problems. She stopped drinking in 2012 and kept it up for the next six years. After Unbroken, Demi released three more albums: her self-titled album in 2013, Confident in 2015, and Tell Me You Love Me in 2017.
Demi not only got better after her overdose in 2018, but she also pushed herself right away to get the help she needed. But she didn’t get through it without getting hurt. Demi had “three strokes,” a “heart attack,” and “brain damage,” as told in her 2021 YouTube Originals docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil. Because she has “blind spots,” she can no longer drive a car. “I also had pneumonia because I was suffocating, and my organs failed in more than one way.” Demi also said that the drug dealer who gave her the almost-fatal mix had a sexual relationship with her.
But Demi was having trouble while she was on tour and making music. She went back to drinking in 2018 and wrote about it in her very real song “Sober.” Demi almost died from an overdose a few months after she released the song, which gave fans hope that the star would get better.
