Having touched fans’ hearts with the brutally honest lyrics to her new song “Sober," Demi Lovato has described herself as a "new person" after performing the words live for the first time.
Demi dropped the heartfelt track last week and seemingly used the music to confess to her fans that she’d relapsed in her battles after more than six years of sobriety.
Moved to tears by the experience of sharing the song with fans, Demi wrote alongside the video of her performance: “Tonight I took to the stage, a new person with a new life. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this journey. It will never be forgotten.”
The frank and vulnerable lyrics include a chorus which says: “Momma I’m so sorry I’m not sober anymore / And Daddy please forgive me for the drinks spilled on the floor. To the ones who never left me, we’ve been down this road before / I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore.”
“Sober” has been highly praised and well received by Lovato’s worldwide audience. She has always been open with her fans about her personal demons, having previously addressed everything from drink and drug use to eating issues and bipolar disorder.
