Demi Lovato revealed she relapsed just months after celebrating six years of sobriety.
“To the ones who never left me / We’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore,” Lovato, 25, sings in her new single, “Sober,” released Thursday.
Elsewhere in the song, she apologizes for the “drinks spilled on the floor” and admits, “I wanna be a role model / But I’m only human … I’m sorry that I’m here again / I promise I’ll get help / It wasn’t my intention / I’m sorry to myself.”
The former Disney star hinted on Twitter numerous times in the last month that her “truth” was coming — and that not everyone would be happy with it.
“There’s nothing like the truth. The honest to God, uncomfortable and shocking truth. Sometimes you have to share your story in the most honest way possible… for me that’s through music,” she wrote in May, adding, “Sometimes you have to end an era to begin talking about a new chapter of your life.”
She also hinted days later that she’d made some changes to her lifestyle and inner circle.
“I feel like I’ve grown more in the past two months than I have in years. I feel like a new woman and I’m so grateful for my life today,” she wrote on June 1.
