Demi Lovato Got Emotional During A Live Performance Of Her New Song About Sobriety
"Tonight I took to the stage a new person with a new life."
A few days ago, Demi Lovato surprised fans when she released a new single out of the blue. It's called "Sober", and seems to be about her experience with drug and alcohol addiction.
Demi announced the unexpected release on social media with the caption "my truth..." and the emotional lyrics hint she may have relapsed after recently celebrating six years of sobriety.
In October last year, Demi released her documentary Simply Complicated, in which she opened up about her past drug abuse.
She also told Billboard that the biggest challenge when it came to her sobriety was being honest with the public about where she was at in the recovery process:
I think what was difficult about the process was being honest about where I am in my life today. Telling the world that I'm not the poster child for recovery. Sometimes it's a struggle, and sometimes I still deal with issues that I have suffered from in the past. It's a challenge to maintain recovery.
