Almost a year after going into treatment for physical and emotional issues, Demi Lovato is making a serious comeback, starting with her new album ‘Unbroken!’
Whenever news breaks in Hollywood that a young star has to leave the spotlight to deal with an addiction, emotional or physical problem, everyone starts wondering if they’ll ever make it back to the limelight. For 19-year-old Demi Lovato, there was never a question if, but when she’d get back to work in a better frame of mind. As she continually works on her recovery, the “Skyscraper” singer is standing strong and thanking her fans for where she is today.
Demi chatted with E! News at a recent meet and greet in Santa Monica about her support system of loyal fans.
“They’ve supported me through all of this and it means a lot,” she said. “They’ve been there for me when I was in treatment and when I got out. Now they’re supporting the new single “Skyscraper” and the new album, “Unbroken,” that comes out Sept. 20. They’re promoting the crap out of it and we’re so excited.”
Speaking of ‘Unbroken,’ Demi shared some secrets about the highly anticipated album.
“‘Unbroken’ is basically me and who I am today,” she said. “I’m unbroken. After everything I’ve been through, I’m still standing strong like a skyscraper. “Unbroken” was my favorite song on the record so I decided to name the album [that]. I have a lot of awesome collaborations. I have collaborations with Jason Derulo, Iyaz, Missy Elliot, it’s going to be a great record.”
To keep herself on the right track as her career takes off again, Demi says she’s being careful who she hangs out with.
“I surround myself with people that are beneficial to my recovery and my recovery is still a daily battle,” she said. “I definitely hang out with people that will support me in making the right decisions and I’m a happier healthier person today because of the choices that I made. It’s amazing having the support of other artists, musicians and actors. Having that respect from them is really incredible. I’m thankful to have that kind of support from people that I look up to.”
