Demi Lovato is always trending for one reason or the other. The star recently called out the age gap between herself and ex-Wilmer Valderrama in a new song. Lovato recently opened up about her “survivor’s guilt” related to Mac Miller’s death.
Lovato was hospitalized owing to her battle with addiction months before the adored rapper died of an accidental overdose. Artists don’t always speak openly about their battles with addiction, but Demi Lovato has been forthcoming about her rehabilitation ever since she nearly died from an overdose.
She was hospitalized in 2018 after a nearly fatal overdose, and months later she and the rest of the world learned of Mac Miller’s untimely death due to comparable circumstances. It all caught up with her. In her conversation with Zane Lowe, Lovato admitted that she experiences “survivor’s guilt” because she is still alive whereas Miller passed away.
I had a lot of survivor’s guilt after my overdose, because right after that Mac Miller died, and it just put everything into perspective for me of, ‘That could have been you, that almost was you, and how are you going to live your life now?’ And it affected me a lot. I’ve lost friends that were around my age, and those hurt so deeply because we’ve been in the trenches together.
When Lovato first entered the industry as a child star, she was already a Pop phenomenon, dominating the charts all over the world. For many years, Lovato tried to combine her substance usage with her job because fame and wealth frequently come with temptations. Check out the video below.
