The singer revealed this honestly in the trailer for her YouTube documentary series, Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil.
She tells how close she came to death after her dangerous relapse into her battle with addiction.
According to her, keeping her problems to herself made her put her life in danger. “Anytime you repress a part of you, it’s going to overflow. I crossed a line that I had never crossed. I cracked, ”she explains.
Recalling her near death experience, she adds that she suffered “three strokes, a heart attack.” “The doctors said I had between five and ten minutes to live,” she says.
The trailer is coupled with an unreleased song whose lyrics suggest it will have the same title as the series. “I was born again, I’m starting over. I have had many lives, like my cat. I’m on the last one. I’m ready to get back to doing what I used to love, music. I don’t live my life for others, or for the headlines, for Twitter, ”she asserts.
The four-part series, which traces the events leading up to his overdose, will also see testimonials from family, close friends, as well as Christina Aguilera and Elton John, who admits being “young and famous is really hard.” . We can also see, in the trailer, that she will reveal a few details about her brief relationship with actor Max Ehrich, whom she left last September.
Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil will open the South by Southwest Festival on March 16.
