Demi Lovato Talks Drug Problems
Tue, 24 Apr 2012 08:54:33
Demi Lovato has been vocal about her personal issues and rehab to address cutting, an eating disorder and other assorted problems. She became a role model because of it. However, she never speaks about whether or not she had a cocaine problem.
She spoke to Fabulous and doesn't quite admit to doing drugs, but she doesn't come close to denying it, either. "It’s something I don't really want to talk about," she said. "What I can say is that I was depressed. I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I'd come crashing down and would try and find a way to recreate that feeling to stay up."
Take from that you will.
We applaud Lovato for her continued bravery and addressing her problems, rather than running from them and pretending that rehab and treatment never happened.
She continued, "Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my ass. 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."
