Demi Lovato Is Four Years Sober, And She Credits Her Boyfriend For Her Recovery

Demi Lovato gave a very powerful performance at James Corden’s The Late Late Show on Wednesday night, according to Entertainment Weekly. The 23-year-old singer performed her new song “Stone Cold,” the fourth single off her album Confident, in intimate surroundings.

Corden decided to celebrate his one-year anniversary as host by hosting the show in the living room of a fan named Natalie. That living room certainly gave some extra intimate vibes to Demi Lovato’s performance.

Demi Lovato’s performance of “Stone Cold,” the music video for which the singer released in February, was accompanied with only piano. After the show, Demi Lovato took to social media to thank Corden for letting her have “so much fun” in Natalie’s house.

The host also made sure everyone was comfortable with each other during Wednesday’s episode of the show. And what better way to achieve that casual and friendly atmosphere than to play a game of hide-and-seek? Apart from Demi Lovato, Reggie Watts, Colin Farrell, Wanda Sykes, and the owner of the house, Natalie, played the game with the host.

As old friends Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas are preparing to kick off their joint tour later in 2016, the two were spotted leaving the same recording studio in Los Angeles this week, according to the Daily Mail.

Even though Lovato and Jonas left separately, it’s most likely that the two were rehearsing ahead of their upcoming tour. Demi Lovato and Jonas’ joint tour Future Now kicks off in June this year.

The “Cool For The Summer” singer revealed she was celebrating her anniversary of being four years sober on Tuesday this week, according to Huffington Post. Demi Lovato managed to turn her struggles with addiction into powerful and beautiful music that not only helped her out of the difficult period in her life, but also uplifts and inspires others.

Demi Lovato took to Twitter to share with her 34.9 million followers that “this last year I experienced so much life and too much death,” adding that she “made it through.”

Earlier this week, Demi Lovato was also referring to her four-year strong sobriety by writing that “anything is possible” and quoted “Spirit Cold,” a song by Tall Heights.

Demi Lovato checked into rehab in 2010 and has always openly shared about her painful experiences. The singer’s struggles included drug addiction as well as depression and bipolar disorder.

After actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died in 2014 from drug intoxication, Demi Lovato wrote that she wished more people would “lose the stigma and treat addiction as the deadly and serious DISEASE that it is.”

“Drugs are not something to glamorize in pop music or film to portray as harmless recreational fun. It’s not cute, ‘cool’ or admirable.”

Demi Lovato also told her fans that you can’t actually predict your addiction and you never know when too much is going to take your life. But luckily for Demi Lovato, she didn’t have to navigate the most difficult time of her life alone. It was her longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama whom the “Confident” singer thanked for her continued sobriety.

According to Demi Lovato, Valderrama played a crucial role in helping her get through her drug addiction. In her interview with Huffington Post last year, the “Cool For The Summer” singer revealed that her boyfriend would never take credit for neither her sobriety nor her recovery, but “I guarantee it, I wouldn’t be alive without him today.”

Demi Lovato and Valderrama have been together for 6 years, and this January the two celebrated their anniversary, with Lovato sharing two Instagram photos of the lovebirds. In one of the photos depicted the couple cuddling in bed.
