Singer Demi Lovato recently opened up to Refinery29 about life before she decided to get sober. In the past, Demi has been very transparent with her previous issues, which included substance abuse, drug addiction, disordered eating and mental illness. She continued with her transparency in her Refinery29 interview, stating, “Prior to getting sober, I was one of those people who was like, I don’t give a f*ck, whatever. And I used that as an excuse to do whatever I wanted. I was a nightmare to work with.”
While most stars – especially those who grew up on the Disney Channel – try to keep mum about such controversial issues, it’s refreshing that Demi continues to speak out in hopes of helping others.
