Demi Lovato has recalled the darkest moments of her battle for sobriety, but there's more to her story that she has not told.
Until now, that is. Demi has announced to fans that her new music, in her new album, witll reveal everything.
She also hints that there are people out there who don't want her to reveal the whole truth. Take a look:
Demi Lovato took to her Instagram Stories to share some insight into her new album.
"You know what’s great about making an album?" Demi asks her followers.
It's a rhetorical question, because she tells them the answer.
"You get to say anything you want," she writes. "Be as open and honest as possible."
"And finally tell your side of the story," Demi concludes. "Regardless of who might not like it."
Back on March 15, Demi marked a very bittersweet anniversary.
"Today I would’ve had 7 years sober," she wrote.
Would have been, but in the summer of 2018, she began using again and ended up overdosing. It was so scary.
"I don’t regret going out," Demi noted. "Because I needed to make those mistakes."
She continued: "but I must never forget that’s exactly what they were: mistakes."
"Grateful that AA/NA never shuts the door on you," Demi expressed.
She noted that this remains true: "no matter how many times you have to start your time over."
A clean slate goes both ways with sobriety, but she notes that she hadn't wasted the previous years.
"I didn’t lose 6 years;" Demi affirmed. "I’ll always have that experience."
"But now," she wrote. "I just get to add to that time with a new journey and time count."
Demi then expressed a desire that her fans and followers could learn from her experiences -- and mistakes.
"If you’ve relapsed and are afraid to get help again," Demi said. "Just know it’s possible to take that step towards recovery."
"If you’re alive today, you can make it back," she affirmed.
She then made it clear that no addict is too far gone to be deserving of life.
Demi concluded: "You’re worth it."
In May, Demi had a much more upbeat message that she shared alongside a photo of her with Scooter Braun.
"GUYS!!!!!!! Dreams came true today for me," Demi wrote. "I officially have a NEW MANAGER!!!"
"And not just any new manager," she clarified. "But the one and only @scooterbraun!!!!"
Scooter is famously Ariana Grande's manager. He's also Justin Bieber's, not that the Biebs has been doing much with music lately.
"Couldn’t be happier," Demi gushed. "Inspired and excited to begin this next chapter with you Scooter!!!"
"Thank you for believing in me and for being a part of this new journey," she concluded. "Let’s DO THIS!!!!!!"
Signing with Scooter didn't just mean that more music was coming.
Scooter is known for being careful with the talent that he manages.
He once canceled Justin Bieber's tour, years ago, because he feared that The Biebs would die if he toured at that time.
So he's no stranger to managing people with substance abuse issues and he knows how to work to keep them alive and healthy.
We cannot wait to hear Demi's story as she tells it herself -- and we're interested to know which people don't want her to tell it.
Demi's music is always a delight, and we're so glad that she is alive and well.
