Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato has opened up about her mental health struggles, a year after taking an overdose at her Los Angeles home.

In her first major interview in over a year, the 27-year-old star described herself as a “fighter” as she focused on her personal battle of the last 12 months.

Demi was rushed to hospital in July 2018 after being found unconscious at her Hollywood Hills home following a suspected opioid overdose.

Speaking to Teen Vogue editor in chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner at the Teen Vogue Summit in LA this weekend, Demi said:

“What I see in the mirror [is] someone that's overcome a lot.
"I've been through a lot and I genuinely see a fighter.
“I don't see a championship winner, but I see a fighter and someone who is going to continue to fight no matter what is thrown in their way.”
The Sorry Not Sorry singer went on: “I think it's been a very introspective year for me. I've learned a lot, been through a lot.”

Demi also revealed that she is no longer putting stress on her body, choosing instead to spend most of October in the gym.
She said: “For so many years I dealt with an eating disorder. What I wasn't ever open with myself about was, whenever I was in the gym I was doing it to an unhealthy extreme. 
“I think that's what led me down a darker path - I was still engaging in these behaviours. Embracing my body as it is naturally is why I took the month of October off the gym.”
