Demi Lovato has always been open and honest about her struggle with addiction.

Recently, the singer was hospitalised with a suspected overdose.

The 25-year-old was found unconscious at her home in the Hollywood Hills at 11 am on Tuesday, July 24.

In true Demi style, the singer has penned a candid letter, bravely opening up about her latest battle with addiction.

In light of the event, Demi took to Instagram to share her first statement since the incident. 

The superstar began the letter about the realities of fighting the illness, that there is no simple fix to make it vanish.

"I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet."

Demi went on to "thank God" that she's alive and well, whilst extending her thanks to all her fans who have offered endless support and love over the last week.

"Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time," she added.

The singer soon turned her attention to those closest to her and the staff, who she reckons without she wouldn't "be here writing this letter."

Understandably, Demi finished the statement by explaining that her focus will now be on getting better and she is looking forward to the future with the possibility of being 'on the other side.'  

"I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side."

"I will keep fighting," she added.

Her transparency around her battle with addiction is truly admirable.

Demi's bravery and strength are shown throughout the letter and we are sure this attitude will help her on the road to recovery. 

We are wishing her a speedy recovery and hope to see her fighting fit once again. 



Being socially awkward isn’t easy, especially in this modern, outgoing world we’re living in today. And here are the reasons why:

Everyone loves hugging each other
Since when did this become a thing? It’s impossible to make a quiet exit from a party anymore because the host is standing at the door with her arms wide open, waiting for a big bear hug. Personal space is at an all time low in modern Ireland – bring back the days where a quick nod across a crowded room would suffice!

"Let's Skype!" – no, let's not. It's so awkward. We don’t know where to look. And it's more effort because you have to actually appear interested aswell as making all the usual 'I'm listening' sounds. And you can't even hear them properly! Can we not just use our phones, like the good old days? We don’t mind the long distance charges, seriously, it’s worth it.

'Free hugs'
As we've mentioned, hugging people you know is bad enough. When some stranger comes towards you in the street with their arms outstretched, a big goofy smile on their face and a t-shirt emblazoned with 'FREE HUGS!', it's the stuff nightmares are made of. When did this kind of behaviour become ok? Damn those happy, free lovin’ hipsters!

Job Interviews
These days, it’s not enough to prove that you can do the job you’ve applied for. You also have to have some kind of elaborate presentation planned, with some hilarious jokes thrown in to show how outgoing and friendly you are. This is a nightmare scenario for any socially awkward person.

The voice recorder on Whatsapp
When someone sends you a voice message on Whatsapp, is it ok to just send a text reply? Or is that ruining all the craic? There’s a reason voice mails died out ye know!

Talking it out
We know it’s not good to leave things unsaid – but it is SO much easier! Everyone loves to talk things out these days, to “get it all out there”, but we can’t help but yearn for the days of brushing stuff under the carpet. Life was so much simpler back then. 




When we were kids, making friends was so easy and came so naturally. However, when we got a bit older, it became weirdly awkward and difficult.

Here are the super awkward moments of making a new friend in your mid 20s.

1. Saying hello
You always see them on the bus, or along the corridor and you know you should say hi, but what if they think you’re a weirdo?!

2. Awkward chit chat
You begin to break the ice and slowly realise…you have no idea what the hell you are doing.

3. Conversation
When you finally get into the swing of things, you begin to feel like you totally have a bond with this person.

4. Social Media
Should you add them or is it still too early?

5. In jokes
You know a friendship is for keeps when you are both in fits of laughter no one else can fathom. It totally wasn’t that funny.

6. Full blown insults
After a while, you can’t remember the last time you greeted this person without adding an insult to the end of the sentence. Outside of your friendship you wouldn’t dare talk to somebody like this, but nothing quite expresses your relationship with this person like random curse words.

7. Family
This person has met your family and has no problems talking to your mother over a cup of tea and a few biscuits. Your parents ask how they’re getting on with life and your nan even lights an extra candle for them for their exam results. This person who you awkwardly talked to about your holidays has eventually become part of the family and you can’t remember a time without them. Totally worth it!
