Demi Lovato‘s name has been all over the news in the last few years, admittedly though, it has not always been for the most stellar reasons. The singer has had a long documented battle with drug addiction, even being hospitalized on July 24, 2018 for an overdose.
However, drug issues aside, the latest tidbit of information regarding the famous songstress is one equally as personal, after opening up to Andy Cohen on his radio show about discovering her sexuality in full.
She told the host that she originally opened up to her parents about these feelings and that they were supportive from the beginning, saying, “It was actually, like emotional, but really beautiful. After everything was done I was like shaking and crying and I just felt overwhelmed.”
“My dad was like, ‘yeah, obviously,’” she said. “And I was like, ‘oh, okay dad.’”
“My mom was the one that I was like super nervous about, but she was just like, ‘I just want you to be happy,’” Lovato mentioned. “That was so beautiful and amazing, and like I said, I’m so grateful.”
In reference to what the future might hold for the optimistic singer, she was quoted as having said, “I don’t know what my future looks like. I don’t know if I’m going to have kids this year or in 10 years. I don’t know if I’m going to do it with a partner or without.”
Her ambiguity is, of course, warranted, given that someone struggling to overcome multiple personal issues with the depth of her own needs time. Granted, the future is definitely uncertain, but one that Lovato is seemingly hopeful for.
After she was hospitalized for drug-related reasons, Lovato took some time to share her thoughts online and give fans a peek into her headspace. At the time, the singer wrote, “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 her hospitalization, reports have shown that Lovato has made great strides in improving the quality of her life as a whole. She actively participates in therapy, phsyical activity of various types, and creates plenty of lists to help keep her on track and focused through the road to recovery.
Lovato maintains that she is only using her platform for good now, vehemently shutting down the practices that put her in the medical and mental predicament that she has dealt with recently.
