Two years after the drug overdose that nearly cost her her life, Demi Lovato confides in this dramatic event that changed her life forever. On Wednesday February 17, 2021, the American singer unveiled on social networks the first images of the documentary Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil (available March 23 on YouTube) in which she delivers herself frankly on these last difficult years. In the trailer for this report following her in her privacy, the star also returns precisely to the physical and psychological consequences of this trauma.
Demi Lovato notably reveals that she suffered three epileptic seizures and a heart attack when she was taken to hospital, shortly after her massive oxycodone intake. Without filter, the interpreter of Tell Me You Love Me tells with emotion: “I inherited brain damage and I am still paying the price now. I cannot drive a car because my vision is blurry in places. . I also take a long time to read, it’s hard for me. It’s very hard not being able to read a book. “

Getting back on her feet thanks to a long work “on the emotional side” on herself, Demi Lovato sees her after-effects as reminders of the worst of what could happen to her if she reconnects with her former demons. Philosopher and at peace with her past, the artist explains that she would “not change anything” to her experience. She continues, “All of this had to happen for me to learn these lessons. It’s been a painful road, I look back and feel sad at the pain I had to endure in order to become who I am. I regret nothing.” Without a doubt, Demi Lovato fans are eagerly awaiting the release of this film which will teach them much more about this dark period.
