Demi Lovato: I'm Still Not Recovered

Fri, July 22, 2011 9:37pm EST by 3 Comments

Demi Lovato opens up about facing battles every day while healing from her disease, and explains it’s an ongoing process. Plus she speaks about her decision to return to the spotlight and her upcoming ‘lighter’ music

Demi Lovato has made a giant, and very inspirational, comeback with her new song “Skyscraper” and a healthy attitude. But she admits, it’s still a daily struggle to battle her issues with depression and bulimia. When asked if she considered herself “recovered” Demi answered, “No. This is an ongoing process and the hardest part about these diseases is that they’re things that I’m going to have to face every day for the rest of my life.”

She told AOL Music, “I’m going to mess up and I’m not going to be perfect, but as long as I try everyday to get better and better myself, then I’m one step ahead of where I was before.”

Eating disorders and depression are not something to be taken lightly, and we’re glad Demi is more than aware of how difficult the recovery process is, and doing everything in her power to be healthy.

Demi takes her recovery so seriously, she even considered not returning to acting and music. “Ultimately, at the end of the day, my health and my state of mind is more important than any career. But I thought, ‘Music is something that keeps me healthy and that has saved my life at one point, and I love it and I’m not going to give it up.’ I can stay healthy and I can do it at the same time.”

And while Demi’s return has been marked by her openness at heavy topics, she wants her fans to know she can still have fun. “The sound and feel of the album is going to be a lot lighter. With ‘Skyscraper,’ we wanted to come out of the gate with something very inspirational and something that represents the journey that I’ve been on. But the rest of the album is a lot lighter and more fun.”

We can’t wait Demi!

“Demi Lovato: I’m Still Not Recovered”. Have you since the face of the girl that she smacked? Where are the criminal charges? If you need to recover stay home, go to therapy , relax. Running around giving interviwes to whomever willing to listen for 5 sec. is called PRMOTING MY NEW SINGLE (since my tv career went south) not trying to recover from “issues”.

“Demi Lovato: I’m Still Not Recovered”. What a bunch of BS. It’s like Lohan family “Rehab on TV”. Demitria! it’s very simple quit promoting your single and just stay out of the spot light to recover! Instead of using “recovery” as a vehicle to get back from pretty big downfall (smacking someone in the face I m surprise there was no criminal charges). ONCE AGAIN MONEY RULES
