FEB. 17, 2021 – Viewers will see a glimpse at Lovato “during the most trying time of her life as she unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health,” per YouTube. “Far deeper than an inside look beyond the celebrity surface, the docuseries is an intimate portrait of addiction, and the process of healing and empowerment.”
Today’s trailer doesn’t shy away from Lovato’s public struggles with substance abuse, featuring confessions from the singer — “I don’t even know why I’m sober anymore,” she admits in one scene — and interviews with friends and family that provide insight into Lovato’s fight for sobriety. “Demi’s good at making you believe that she’s okay,” Eddie De La Garza, Lovato’s stepdad, explains, while her sister, Madison De La Garza, adds, “Demi’s very good at hiding what she needs to hide.” The first glimpse at Dancing with the Devil also provides specific details about Lovato’s overdose, which led to three strokes and a heart attack that she says could have killed her. “I crossed a line that I had never crossed,” Lovato says. While she doesn’t reveal more, Lovato’s close friend, Matthew Scott Montgomery, asks in an interview, “Are we talking about heroin, are we doing that ?”While Lovato takes her fans into a darker place then she’s ever revealed, she also focuses on the ways she’s changed since her overdose. “I’m ready to get back to doing what I love, which is making music,” she says.Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil premieres in four parts on YouTube, with the first installment debuting on Lovato’s YouTube Channel Tuesday, March 23.
