  • ...when I watch things like things it just reminds that us as human beings aren't designed to be praised or to be looked at for too long...it becomes toxic for the person praising and for the person being praised aka "the fan" and "the celebrity"...this also goes show how us as human beings were designed to glorify or praise, sadly we just choose the wrong things to worship such as food, social media, clothes, fitness, dreams and other people...

  • She's very fortunate to be able to get the help she needed unlike sooo many people out there. Can't help but wonder if her mum had a part to play in this..did she push her on to the stage too young, did she even want this? I don't know, never been a demi fan.

  • No, but like, they know her body type. Why draw clothes that she might wear on a "model" like that? you could at least make her body type. Unless those were made for runaway models to wear straight away...

  • I think that people who put there kids on a screen are selfish and shouldn't have those kids anymore. Something so common with child stars is that they say it's hard to say no when they are the breadwinner and that's so sad with all these family channels and knowing how hard it can be for adults to find work so if they can sell their kid to the devil then ya they'd do it if it meant they'd get a bunch of money

  • I feel like the image that her and her team continues to push of her being a warrior and survivor is their way of trying to control the narrative. I feel like it’s actually harmful to Demi’s recovery, it puts a lot of added pressure on her when in reality recovery is hard enough as it is. Having to be a positive role model when Demi is still actively on her journey of recovery is asking too much of her. She’s the sort of person who wants to be completely open about every part of her addiction and eating disorder but it just makes her feel even more ashamed and guilty when she has relapses (because recovery isn’t a uphill process, setbacks are common). I think if her recovery team really cared for her they would let her know that she should keep her process quiet from the public, even if she thinks she can handle the public scrutiny at the time she may feel differently later when she’s not feeling as strong. She really doesn’t owe the public or media anything, she should be allowed to keep it private if it’s what’s best for her recovery long term.

  • I was at her show in Newcastle in 2018 must have been less than a month before the overdose. You could 100% tell she wasn’t happy. She looked miserable between every song-like she was going through the motions.

  • I saw you in Madrid Airport before you flew to Rock In Rio, Lisbon. I slightly came to you and told you that I was flying to Lisbon as well just to see her performing! You smiled at me but, when we made eye contact, I realized that your look was sad.. I pushed a bit back because I did not want to disturb you but then I had a mix of emotions because I felt blessed to have seen you but It broke my heart seeing you like that.. Wishing you the sweetest path of life. and sm love for you

  • Oh my gosh. Her story about her dad is exactly how it was with my dad. I loved my dad more thank anything but he was an alcoholic and drug user and 4 years ago I had to do the hardest thing and distance myself. Last year in March my dad passed away alone. He was alone until someone found him. We don’t know the exact day he passed as well. It was always a fear of mine that he would pass alone. I totally know how she feels. It’s hard and I’m still struggling with it. Demi is amazing and strong I hope she can pull through the pain. Like I’m trying too.

  • Demi this literally hit me in the gut with the similarities in the way we grew up. My father was schizophrenic and a h*rion addict. He beat my mom also. We moved away from him and I stopped talking to him in 2010. He died in 2016 by his addiction. He was found in his room. I have been fighting to stay away from his path, but at 16 I was binge drinking. At 17 I had a horrible adderall addiction. I lost 78lbs in 3 months. At 18 I went back to my childhood home and started focusing on my mental health. Stay strong hun 💖 you’re not alone.

  • To be quite honest, I am not a huge fan of Demi's music however I have been following her story for the last few years. I am glad that she has found outlet and she is able to tell her side of the story. TMZ, tabloids and others new sources tell you what they are allowed to tell. I will never know what its like to be an addict's but I have watched some growing up and its a uphill battle. I refuse to believe that her team is doing this for "clout" I think Demi has gotten to where she knows who is supposed to be around her. I just pray that Demi is strong enough to stay up and/or and I hope that there are those around her who can help her heal.
