Demi Lovato, come here so we can give you a hug. Forever. In her new documentary Demi Lovato: Stay Strong, the “Skyscraper” singer admits to an ongoing struggle with an eating disorder and self-harming; meanwhile, we’re struggling not to silently weep at our computers. It is not easy. “I cannot tell you that I have not thrown up since treatment,” Lovato told interviewer SuChin Pak during a particularly emotional part of the special, which aired last night. “I can not tell you that I have not cut myself since treatment. I’m not perfect. This is a daily battle that I will face the rest of my life.” Ugh, all these tears cannot be good for our keyboards.
The former Disney star has been nothing if not candid about her physical and mental issues, a journey that began with a trip to rehab in November 2010. “I was exhausted. I had so many issues underneath that needed to be taken care of, and we just kept putting band-aids over it,” Demi Lovato admits in the doc. “It literally ended up driving me insane.” Demi, we’re going to need you to get over to our house, put on this Forever Lazy suit and watch all of Gilmore Girls in one setting with us. We know that’s not going to fix anything; we just need to go with our first instinct.
