Its been over a year since Demi Lovato was hospitalised due to a heroin overdose. She was sadly found unconscious in her Hollywood Hills home, after a long struggle with substance abuse.
Now nearly 18 months later Demi has opened up in a candid interview at Teen Vogue Summit. She spoke openly about the lessons she has learnt from her experiences and how she has grown.
I've changed a lot. I've gone through a lot,
"What a lot of people don't realise is that I'm actually an extremely sensitive person," Lovato said
"I am human, so be easy on me. And I'm so tired of pretending like I'm not human. That's one thing that I won't do anymore. When you say stuff, it affects me. I'm human. I try not to look, but I see it."
Throughout the heartbreaking speech, she admitted that she had made her fair share of mistakes, but she is trying her hardest to back a comeback.
"I think that a lot of the things I've been through kind of outshined my successes in the music industry or acting now. I just want people to remember that that's what I want to give to the world so please focus on that and not the other things."
Go Demi. We are so proud of how far you've come!
