Thursday night, Demi Lovato released a self-empowerment song called “I Love Me.” Near the end of the music video, Demi walks past an ambulance stretcher and reaches out to the young girl.
Earlier on Thursday, Demi touched on her near-fatal overdose with Ellen DeGeneres. She blamed a former manager for triggering abandonment issues. She eased those intense feelings with a drink. Relapsing after six years of sobriety sent Demi over the edge.
Demi told Ellen in only the vaguest terms “I went to a party. There was other stuff there. This was only three months before I ended up in hospital.”
Her ex-manager fed on Demi’s eating issues.Ellen DeGeneres revealed how Demi’s previous handlers created a sugar-free zone in her dressing room. They swept the place clean. Demi responded with how her new manager,Scooter Braun, encouraged her to enjoy a birthday cake, (quote) “I spent it with Ariana Grande, who is one of my good friends. We just had the best birthday.” (MTV)
