Aug. 18, 2022 – Lovato, who recently added back the pronouns she/her, suffered an overdose in 2018. Following the near-fatal moment, the former Disney star woke up in an intensive care unit with an extensive recovery process in front of her. Lovato suffered “three strokes, a heart attack and organ failure” and was legally blind at first. “I’ve made friends of all ages. I’ve lost friends of – I’ve lost friends that were around my age and those hurt so deeply because we’ve been in the trenches together,” she told Lowe.

“You addressed this on ‘Dead Friends.’ It’s a song that ultimately addresses survivor’s guilt,” Lowe interjected.

“I had a lot of survivor’s guilt after my overdose,” Lovato continued. “Because, you know, right after that Mac Miller died, and it just put everything into perspective for me of like that could have been you. That almost was you and … how are you going to live your life now.”
