Addiction, overdoses, engagements and the road to empowerment: Demi Lovato holds nothing back in the trailer for her emotional documentary.
In the last week, the internet has been awash with an outpouring of outrage and empathy for Britney Spears after the explosive New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears – which takes a dark look at her life so far, as well as the feeding frenzy of celebrity, inherent industry sexism and double standards that plague the music biz.
Now, another artist also going under the lens – one who has also similarly been plagued with a barrage of unfair media attention following her public struggles with sobriety – Demi Lovato drops the first trailer for her documentary, Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil. Set to air on March 23, the tear-jerking four-part YouTube original series features Elton John and Christina Aguilera, and delivers to her fans her side of the story following her heavily publicised 2018 drug overdose.
“I was left with brain damage, and I still deal with that today. I don’t drive a car due to blind spots with my vision and I had a really hard time reading,” the 28-year-old explains, also adding that the experience left her with “three strokes, a heart attack and my doctors saying I had five to ten minutes.”
Dancing With The Devil will delves into the artist’s heroin and opioid use, also looking at the ex Disney Channel actress’ struggle with mental health, past traumas and her craft. The documentary will also feature emotional interviews with her mother, Dianna De La Garza, stepfather, Eddie de la Garza, and sisters.
Lovato’s whirlwind engagement to actor and singer Max Ehrich, plus their following nasty split will also be discussed.
