“Sorry Not Sorry” singer Demi Lovato has opened up on Instagram, reflecting on the year 2018 in a New Year’s Eve post.
On Monday, Dec. 31, 2018, Lovato took to her Instagram Stories to comment on the past year of her life to her 70.8 million followers. “So grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year,” she wrote in a text post, as reported by E! News. “I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones.”
Th 26-year-old continued, “Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me throughout this year. God bless.”
As fans will remember, Lovato was hospitalized on July 24, 2018, after an alleged drug overdose. She later attended a rehabilitation center. According to E! News, Lovato remained in rehab until early November 2018. She’s since reportedly entered a relationship with designer Henry Alexander Levy.
While she hasn’t said much regarding her reported overdose, she has spoken out about alleged sources in the media commenting on her situation. “I love my fans, and hate tabloids. Don’t believe what you read. People will literally make up stuff to sell a story. Sickening,” she posted on Twitter on Dec. 21. She tweeted, “If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF. Otherwise people stop writing about my recovery, because it’s no one’s business but mine.”
She added that “someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today,” but until then, she needs time to recover. Saying that she is “sober and grateful to be alive,” she noted that her friends wouldn’t talk about her to the press, so any alleged sources in the tabloids wouldn’t actually have any accurate information.
We wish Demi Lovato all the best in the new year!
