Seventeen contributing editor Demi Lovato talks about the most amazing people in her life — all of you!
I’ve said it before and I will say it forever — I HAVE THE BEST FANS IN THE WORLD! It’s no secret that this last year has been tough for me. But the outpouring of support and encouragement that I’ve received from all of you is honestly what has got me through even the most difficult days. If I ever feel down, the stories and understanding from my fans make me realize I am not alone. And for that, I’m incredibly grateful to every single one of you.
It’s amazing how through struggle you can find strength. I’ve been so touched and inspired by the personal stories you’ve shared with me. So many of you have overcome depression, addiction, and other trials, and that is amazing! I feel like we are all stronger than we can even realize. Each of your stories gives me comfort and reminds me that we are all in this together. Every one of you is truly special, and I love you all so much!
I always wanted to thank you all for the birthday wishes! You guys made me fee like the luckiest girl in the world.
And my last bit of news: In case you haven’t heard yet, I have two exciting performances coming up — September 17 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and September 23 at Club Nokia in L.A. I can’t wait to share my new music with you and see all of your smiling faces! Tickets are available now, at ticketmaster.com. Hope to see you there!
