She checked in for a series of physical and emotional problems, including an eating disorder and cutting problems. But with the help and support of her family in the last four years, she’s remained stronger than ever.

The road to sobriety was long, but sharing with her fans helped her along the way.

“Honestly, I am thankful for my life path, including the highs and the lows, because it has caused my true self to shine through. Going to treatment was a gift and I believe it saved my life. I learned how to be strong and healthy even through struggles. It also helped me open up about my issues and share them with others. Knowing that my family, friends and fans accept me for who I am is the greatest feeling ever!” Demi wrote in her open letter in Seventeen magazine.

This week, in a series of tweets, the singer anticipated her anniversary:

Lovato released her new album, aptly titled “Confidence” late last year, has slayed it over and over in performances and is currently on tour with Nick Jonas. Not bad…

By her side through it all? The man she loves…

“He’s loved me the way I never thought I deserved to be loved and with this day marking my 3rd year sober…”  she captioned the IG snap last year.

Demi Lovato Opened Up To Her Former ‘Sonny With A Chance’ Castmembers About Her Eating Disorder At The Time

Time spent at home in isolation during the current coronavirus pandemic has led a lot of us to connect with friends old and new on apps like Facetime and Zoom. This has been true for celebrities as well, who have been using video calls to have virtual reunions with old cast members. A few weeks ago it was the cast of High School Musical and Victorias. Last week it was the beloved Spy Kids. Now it’s the cast of Sonny With A Chance.

The Sonny With A Chance reunion saw the shows former stars including Demi Lovato, Tiffany Thornton, and Allisyn Ashley Arm reunited.

Former cast members Matthew Scott Montgomery, Audrey Whitby, Sterling Knight, Doug Brochu, Shayne Topp, and Damien Haas also joined in on the fun and to reminisce about their old days on set. It was during this time that Lovato, thanked her former Disney Channel co-stars for their support and love while she was on the show.

At one point, Lovato thanks Thornton, who played the part of Sonny’s rival Tawni Hart on the show, for being her “biggest inspiration” after she left the cast.

“When I went away to treatment for the first time, you were my biggest inspiration coming out of it because you dealt with all of those pressures of being a woman on TV,” Demi explained, pointing to their days worrying about how they looked during fittings for the show. “It’s a shame that we wasted any energy on what we wore on set.”

Lovato also admitted during the reunion that she kept her dressing room at extremely warm temperatures because she was “underweight and freezing.”

The implications of Lovato’s words is that she was likely feeling cold and underweight because she was battling an eating disorder. Speaking about the ups and downs she experienced on the show, Lovato admitted that she “wasn’t sleeping and I was so miserable and angry too because I felt like I was being overworked.”

The Cast Of “High School Musical,” Demi Lovato, Beyoncé, Ariana Grande, And More Got Back Together For A Disney Family Singalong

ABC

We thought their Disney days were long behind them, but on Thursday night, Christina Aguilera, Demi Lovato, Beyoncé, and others gathered around their cameras to sing to families across the country for “The Disney Family Singalong.”

On Thursday night, Disney fans got the ultimate star treatment as part of ABC’s star-studded Disney Family Singalong.

The event, which was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, saw performers in their most minimal and scrappy landscapes yet as they used minimal equipment and “a whole lot of harmony” to get fans watching to “join in on the top of their lungs … even your dad.” To make things seamless, the lyrics which featured Disney’s most popular songs were displayed at the bottom of the screen.

For her part, Ariana Grande refused to say she was in love. 

Belting the lyrics to the beloved Hercules tune “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” Ariana dressed the part of Meg in a purple outfit and ponytail and even took on the part of the five muses.

Perhaps the most emotional part of the night, however, was when Lovato sang “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”

Singing alongside Michael Bublé for the classic “Cinderella” film, Lovato dedicated her performance to first responders. Throughout the performance were messages thanking the first responders, medical staff and grocery store workers tending to the public during the time of this pandemic.

Topping off the night was emotional performances by Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé.

Singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” from The Lion King, Aguilera’s performance was a reminder of how instrumental supporting each other is at this time. While Beyoncé joined in on the theme of Unity by singing a soulful rendition of “When You Wish Upon a Star.” At the end she reassured fans saying “we’ll get through this.”
