Following her 2018 drug overdose, which led to a near two-week hospitalization and a months-long intensive rehab stint, Demi Lovato still wanted to use, she recalled in a new interview.

“I think it was right after I got out of rehab in 2018. I saw an article somewhere that said I was morbidly obese,” the singer, now 28, told PAPER magazine, explaining, “And that is the most triggering thing that you could possibly write about somebody with an eating disorder.” 

“That sucked, and I wanted to quit, I wanted to use, wanted to give up,” Demi Lovato, who covers the magazine’s April 2021 issue, admitted. The latter revelation occurred while the singer explained why she doesn’t read her own press, or most comments on her social media.

“And then I just realized that if I don’t look at those [negative] things then they can’t affect me. So, I stopped looking and I just really try not to look at anything negative,” she said. Though, “I think the positives outweigh the negatives,” Demi Lovato continued, noting, “I think that if they didn’t, I wouldn’t be doing this.”
