Demi’s Coming Back
By: A’Breya Young
Lovatics, this is what we’ve all been waiting for; Demi is back and better than ever! She may have fallen in the recent months, but as always, our girl dusts off and gets back up again.
The Root of the Problem
At the age of 7, Demi made her first appearance on the big screen starring in Barney and Friends, later made her big break casting in Disney’s Camp Rock. Now only did Lovato’s acting career begin after starring in this movie, but her singing career started as well. In 2008, her song “This Is Me” peaked at #9 on the billboards. However, the struggle of having a low self-image was a major contributing factor in Demi’s alcohol and drug addiction which became worse as she boomed in the musical industry. After being consulted by her loved ones in an intervention, Lovato entered a facility for emotional and physical issues on November 1st, 2010. In the next year, doctors diagnosed Demi with bipolar disorder and she was later treated for this. Taking care of her mental health put Lovato in a great place until 2018.
The Reasons Behind Stepping Down
In the summer of 2018, Demi Lovato released a song titled “Sober”, where she confessed to fans about relapsing after maintaining six years of sobriety. The song includes the lyrics, “To the ones who never left me we’ve been down this road before I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.” Fans became worried about demi’s mental and physical health after “Sober” was released, but as she hit the stage and performed her new song, fans believed she was trying to become clean again. Weeks later, these thoughts resembled to be untrue, with the news breaking that Demi was in critical condition after a drug overdose. Two weeks after this incident, Demi broke her silence, writing in a post, “ I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.” Since that post, Lovato later checked herself into a rehabilitation facility in August. About a month later, Demi was released, and she later made her big appearance in an Instagram post on November 6th, 2018.
The Queen is Back
From the time of “Sober” being released and Lovato’s overdose, our queen has yet dropped another song. Lovatics have gone a year and a half without new music, but according to Demi, the wait is almost over! In a recent Instagram post, Lovato wrote, “ The next time you hear me, I’ll be singing.” Yes, you heard right! Our queen is coming to take the throne and rule the realm of pop. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Billie Eilish, but her crown is about to be taken from the best of them all. Sorry, not sorry!
