Demi Lovato Breaks Her Silence In First Interview Since Overdose Last Year

Demi Lovato is opening up about her drug relapse for the first time since her overdose in June of last year, and fans couldn't be more proud.

Speaking at the Teen Vogue Summit in Los Angeles on November 2nd, Demi opened up about her relapse for the first time.

"I’ve learned a lot, I’ve been through a lot and I think as time goes on, as we are being faced with challenges in our life on a daily basis like we all are, we are all human," Demi told Teen Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Lindsay Peoples Wagner.

"What a lot of people don’t realize is that I’m actually an extremely sensitive person," Demi admitted.

"I am human so be easy on me. And I’m so tired of pretending like I’m not human. That’s one thing that I won’t do anymore. When you say stuff, it affects me. I’m human. I try not to look but I see it."

Demi also said she was sick of cancel culture and considers it harmful to people who need to learn from their mistakes.

“We live in a day and age when everyone’s so quick to cancel everybody, and I’m really really tired of it, to be honest. People just make mistakes."

“You can’t worry about everybody, but if you did say something that is wrong, then learn from it and think: ‘OK, what can I do to not make this mistake again?’”

Demi also revealed she's in the process of loving her body and appreciating herself in her most natural form: "What nobody taught me and what I had to figure out for myself over the past six to nine months is that I have to be OK with where it’s at in this moment."

She continued, "All I have to say is I’m healthy and, in that statement, I express gratitude and I am grateful for my strength and what I can do with my body."
