Although Demi Lovato has been known to kill it at the MTV Video Music Awards, the starlet was a no-show at last year’s event after she overdosed one month prior. Fans have been curious to see whether or not she would make an appearance at the 2019 VMAs, but it looks like she’s still keeping them on their toes.
The former Disney kid, 27, teased some sort of new project on August 26, the same day as the famed award show. “OK, I can’t tell you guys what I’m doing today (you’ll find out super soon tho) but it’s making me so happy,” Demi began a cryptic written message on her Instagram Story. “I’m having so much fun and I can’t stop laughing.”
Last year, the awards show wrestled with addressing the incident, but ultimately decided not to. “It’s so important,” VMAs executive producer Bruce Gilmer said to Us Weekly of the issue back in August 2018. “We just talked about this. We toggle back and forth with this big platform. Sometimes, the thought is, ‘Let’s use this for a greater good.’ But sometimes, we get feedback that people want to come in and escape the world for a minute.”
On July 24, 2018, Demi was found unconscious and hospitalized. She later entered rehab on August 4. Now that it has been over a year since the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer relapse, she’s continued to persevere. “Demi is writing songs, working out, meditating and just filling her path, and of course being sober,” a source exclusively told In Touch.
“She feels like her last relapse was an eye-opener and a reminder that she needs to stay diligent and work her sobriety program.” Another insider previously explained, “She’s remained determined to lead a life of sobriety and live her life to its fullest potential, especially following the first anniversary of her relapse.”
On Tuesday, August 20, Demi confirmed that she will be releasing new music for the first time since her accident. The singer teased back in June that her new music will address her issues with substance abuse and personal struggles. The “Tell Me You Love Me” singer said, “You know what’s great about making an album? You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and finally tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it.”
