Singer Demi Lovato just hit a major milestone: She's six months sober! To celebrate her success, she posted a piece of cake donning the number six written in chocolate on top with a note from her team.
It also looks like Lovato got a new tattoo to (literally) mark the occasion. She posted a picture of her finger featuring a small rose tattoo with the caption "obsessed." She has a detailed history of self-harm and substance abuse, but these days she's back on track. She was just nominated for a Grammy for "Fall in Line" alongside Christina Aguilera. Demi's back, baby!
Lovato, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, has used her wide influence to help others living with mental illness.
In this interview, Lovato talks about all the struggles she faced before getting a diagnosis. She talks about having a bipolar disorder and how she started Be Vocal, a mental health initiative.
She's always been open about how sobriety has not been easy for her.
At one point, Lovato had been sober for years, but in a song called "Sober," released just before her 2018 overdose, she revealed that she'd relapsed. In the chorus she sings:"Momma, I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore
And daddy, please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor
To the ones who never left me
We've been down this road before
I'm so sorry, I'm not sober anymore"
Clearly, all this openness and hard work is paying off — on top of all these achievements, Lovato has just been nominated for a Grammy.
Along with Lovato's other accomplishments this year, the singer is nominated for a Grammy for featuring in "Fall In Line" by Christina Aguilera. Watch the awards show on February 10 to see if she wins. We're rooting for her.
