Demi Lovato Reveals She Relapsed in Her Heartbreakingly Honest Song, "Sober"
Demi Lovato is coming clean in an emotional new song. In June, the singer revealed that she relapsed after six years of sobriety in a new track titled "Sober." During the chorus she sings, "Mama, 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."
Later in the song, she directly addresses her fans, who call themselves Lovatics, singing, "I'm sorry for the fans I lost / Who watched me fall again / I wanna be a role model / But I'm only human." The song ends with a promise to herself to get help again.
The singer has been very honest about her battles with drug and alcohol addiction over the years. Aside from opening up about going to rehab during her documentary Simply Complicated, Lovato broke down on stage earlier this year when her fans sang "Happy Birthday" in honor of her sober "birthday" during her concert in March.
