Demi Lovato opens up about life after her overdose in July 2018 in a tell-all new interview on “New Music Daily with Zane Lowe” on Apple Music.
The 27-year-old previews her new track “Anyone”, which was written and recorded four days “before everything happened,” during the chat. She’s set to perform the song during Sunday’s Grammys.
Lovato shares, “I almost listen back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help.”
“And you kind of listen back to it and you kind of think, How did nobody listen to this song and think, ‘Let’s help this girl’?
“I was recording it in a state of mind where I felt I was okay but clearly I wasn’t. I even listen back to it and I’m like, ‘Gosh, I wish I could go back in time and help that version of myself.’”
Lovato also says she looks toward the future when she’s going through a rough time.
“I look toward the future for hope. To change my perspective on things — especially when I got through something difficult, I always stop and I think, Why is God putting me through this?”
She also talks about how she no longer judges her happiness by her success but rather, by her family and friends.
She adds of the future, “I want to start a family. That would be dope. I don’t even know if I see it with a man or a woman. I just know that, at some point, I would love to do that this decade.”
