  • Demi Lovato opened up about how she's been doing since overdosing last year, saying, "I’ve been through a lot."
  • She also said that she's going to take her time with releasing new music.

While most recently Demi Lovato has been in the news for having a fling with The Bachelor's Mike Johnson and dying her hair some amazing colors, last year Demi was making headlines for heading to rehab after an overdose. Just yesterday, Demi gave her first major interview since becoming sober, and she talked about how she's feeling about herself now.

At the Teen Vogue Summit, Demi opened up about how's she's doing, saying (via People), "What I see in the mirror [is] someone that’s overcome a lot. I’ve been through a lot and 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 no matter what is thrown in their way."

And even though Demi has obviously had a difficult year, she's okay with it. "I wouldn’t change the direction of my life for anything," she said. "I would never regret anything. I love the person that I am today."

As for when all of this confidence and positivity will translate into a new album, well, Demi says that she isn't in any rush to release new music. She shared:

It’s important to remember that I am so cautious this time around of jumping back into things. I’ve really decided to take my time with things, so when the time is right to release new music, I will put it out there...Genuinely I just want people to remember that I’m a singer. I think that a lot of the things I’ve been through kind of outshined my successes in the music industry or acting now. I just want people to remember that that’s what I want to give to the world so please focus on that and not the other things.

Sending love to Demi, and keeping my fingers crossed that new music comes sooner rather than later!!
