Demi Lovato Talks About Drugs and Alcohol With British Magazine, Fabulous

By  | 



Demi Lovato has been really open with the media lately about her past — her body image issues especially — but in a new interview with British mag, Fabulous, we’re learning even more about Demi — like about just how intense her experience was with drugs and alcohol.

Demi told the mag: “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.”

But Demi even alluded to doing some drugs herself, not having been under the influence of other people: “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 to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay ‘up’.”



Of course Demi is better now and is on her road to recovery, but she wants her fans to know she’s still not 100 percent, saying, “I’m not saying I’m perfect, or fixed, but I am learning to love and accept myself. My outlook is more positive and I am happy.”

And we bet the outlook on her love life is more positive, too! Even though the Demster claims that now she’s “not dating at all,” she “loves having a boyfriend.” Hm…who do you think Demi should date next?!



And what do you think of Demi being so open about her issues? Do you respect her more for it?
