We would like to give a real hug to Demi Lovato right now. After battling substance abuse, eating disorders, and being in and out of clinics for self-harm, Demi is holding her head high. In a recent interview with British Magazine Fabulous Demi opens up about her struggles and the pressures of Hollywood. “Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs,” she admitted “They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. 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.” Soon after, Demi realized the dangers of the fast life and is walking away from it as we speak. It is a very tough thing to go through, but we see Demi as a role model and her strength and real-ness is so admirable. It takes courage and bravery to be able to even talk about such struggles. Demi, we love you and wish you good health and happiness!
