For a public statement about the deepest, darkest fight of her life, Demi Lovato’s thank you video is remarkably vague about what that struggle even was. “The journey I have been on has been very very difficult,” Lovato acknowledges in the video released today. “I was dealing with issues that I know not only girls just my age but of all ages are dealing with…I hope to one day raise awareness of everything so that I can help people too, like you guys helped me through this rough time.” The actress seemingly refers to rumors that Lovato’s alleged eating disorder and self-harming influenced her decision to go into rehab. Even so, maybe we can narrow it down a little bit? From teething to the birth of our grandchildren, there are a lot of issues that “girls of all ages” might be dealing with.
The other more obvious reason for Lovato’s time in treatment, Demi’s brawl with back-up dancer Alex Welch never gets addressed in the video. Demi also doesn’t clear up any rumors about whether she’ll be returning to Sonny With A Chance or not, despite being the main character. “I’m excited to get back to work. I can’t wait to tell you guys what the future holds,” Lovato says, though the recent change of her show’s name to So Random makes us wonder what job Demi expects to go back to. Don’t get us wrong; we’re glad the girl is doing better. If we were her though, the next step on our recovery checklist would be to hire a new, way more specific speech writer.
