Coming clean. Demi Lovato is prepared to open up about the events that transpired before her near-fatal overdose on her hotly anticipated seventh studio album.
Lovato, 26, teased details about her next record in an Instagram Stories post on Tuesday, June 25. She dished what she enjoys most about creating a record.
“You know what’s great about making an album? You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it…” she wrote on Tuesday, adding an emoji of a woman shrugging her shoulders beneath the statement.
The “Confident” singer suffered a near-fatal drug overdose in July 2018. The health scare happened one month after she released the track “Sober,” where she confirmed her relapse following six years of sobriety.
Lovato tweeted about her interest in sharing details about her overdose in December 2018. “If I feel like the world needs to know something, I will tell them MYSELF,” she wrote. “Otherwise people stop writing about my recovery, because it’s no one’s business but mine. I am sober and grateful to be alive and taking care of ME.”
She also added that, “someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today.”
The Disney alum’s album update comes on the heels of her posting a picture to her Instagram profile of her recording music in a studio. Lovato shared a selfie with headphones on as she posed behind a microphone. She captioned the post: “Making magic.”
Where other celebrities are quick to team up with luxury brands, or release limited-edition collaborations that sell out so fast they end up going for thousands on eBay, Demi Lovato is proving she’s one hell of a savvy businesswoman. In a move that shows she clearly gets her fans, the singer just teamed up with NYC cosmetics to design her own makeup collection, Lovatics by Demi. And there isn’t a single item in the line that’s over $5.
As for the products, they’re on par with the rest of your drugstore faves. Think basics such as volumizing mascara ($4.99), three different shades of lip and cheek tints ($3.99), a versatile eyeshadow palette that’s made for day-to-night wear ($4.99), and an eyebrow pencil with a grooming brush ($1.99)—an obvious choice seeing that pretty much everyone wants her power brows right now. (The secret, FYI, is to brush the hairs at the inner corner of the brow straight up. It makes them look stronger and fuller.) All will be available at Target and Walmart stores later this month.
Considering you can buy the entire collection for $16, not even half of what most celebrity collabs cost, there’s really no reason not to try them. Especially when you’ve got a gorgeous photo like the above for inspiration.
