Demi Lovato, the Grammy-nominated singer who got her start on Barney & Friends, has spent the last three years taking advantage of her second chance at life after her 2018 overdose.
Lovato will discuss the events that led up to the near-fatal overdose in her upcoming YouTube documentary, Dancing with the Devil. The first two episodes will be free on March 23rd on Lovato’s YouTube channel. The remaining episodes will be released weekly on each of the next two Tuesdays.
Directed by Michael D. Ratner, Dancing with the Devil will cover the last three years of Lovato’s personal life and career. Production on the film started in 2018 during Lovato’s Tell Me You Love Me world tour. Lovato promises “an honest look back at some of the most trying times in my life”. The press release says it explains “her prior traumas and how she discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health.”
“It’s been two years since I came face-to-face with the darkest point in my life, and now I’m ready to share my story with the world,” Lovato said. “For the first time, you’ll be able to see my chronicle of struggle and ongoing healing from my point of view. I’m grateful that I was able to take this journey to face my past head-on and finally share it with the world.”
Fans are looking forward to hearing about Lovato’s journey from rock bottom. She has mostly stayed out of the spotlight following her overdose and has been focused on not letting food or her weight bring her back to a “dark place again”.
