Demi Lovato Shares Before and After Photos of Herself: 'Recovery Is Possible'

Demi Lovato Shares Before and After Photos of Herself: 'Recovery Is Possible'

The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer opened up about her battle with the eating disorder in her YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated, and explained how her June 2016 breakup from boyfriend of six years Wilmer Valderrama caused her to fall back into old struggles. The documentary also features accounts from close members of her inner circle, including Nick and Joe Jonas, giving details about how her life was nearly destroyed. In 2010, Lovato was asked how Gomez was doing to which she responded, "Ask Taylor", a reference to Taylor Swift.

Lovato isn't afraid to embrace her sensual side, either.

Lovato recalled that the last night she ever abused any substances, booze was the poison she picked. "I had started working at that time and was under a lot of stress so I would bake cookies for my family and I would eat all of them and nobody would have any to eat".

Google Pays Tribute to Icon Selena in Homepage Doodle
In addition to the doodle, there are memories of Selena in an online exhibit on the Google Arts & Culture site. I even sang Selena classics in talent shows across northeast Texas [photo evidence below, courtesy of my Mom].

You'd think, naturally, in the age of Internet trolls, that would set Lovato up for unwarranted cyberbullying, but the positive and supportive reactions to the doc have been what's stood out the most - including one from a celebrity longtime pal of Demis.

There's plenty of honesty, but bills have to be paid and much of the film serves as a commercial for the album she just released, "Tell Me You Love Me".

"The food came first".

The Rohingya refugees told the UNHCR they were forced to leave when their villages were set on fire. Footage shows the line of refugees stretching for many kilometres.

Demi Lovato's decision to maintain her sobriety is a constant "challenge". "I think it was love at first sight, and I don't really believe in that, but I believe that it happened". She began a tour with the Jonas Brothers before embarking on a tour on her own. "What motivates me on those days is knowing how I'm going to feel after I'm done".

"I worked with everyone on the team - business managers, agents, attorneys, everybody, to say, 'If Phil walks, we walk, '" McIntyre said. "Something was actually off with me". "I think it was love at first sight, we connected on a level that I've never connected with anybody before, he was just my rock, my everything", she says. "When I turned 18 we started dating". "There is something sexy about someone putting in all of their physical strength into their passion", she says.
