'I've been through a lot, learned a lot'
Los Angeles: Singer Demi Lovato has opened up about her 2018 overdose and said the incident has taught her a lot. The 27-year-old singer made her first public appearance at Teen Vogue Summit here, where she recalled her transformative journey of the past one year.
"I've gone through a lot, and this is really my first public thing, so I'm a little nervous. Over the past year, I've learned a ton. I feel like I'm more in tune with who I am now, where I'm at today. I've learned a lot, I've been through a lot and I think as time goes on, as we are being faced with challenges in our life, on a daily basis like we are all human," Lovato said.
The 'Solo' singer said whenever she looks in the mirror, she sees someone who has "been through a lot. "I genuinely see a fighter. I don't see a championship winner, but I see a fighter and someone who is going to continue to fight."
In July last year, she had overdosed on what was reported as an unspecified opioid. In August, Lovato entered into a rehabilitation facility and later left it in search of additional treatment in Chicago.
