Demi Lovato Stay Strong AFTER SHOW







  • Anonymous

    It’s simple, if you fall off a horse, get back on the horse. Well, wait until the broken pelvis heals before getting back on.
    Demi is still broken and should not be riding yet.

    Or maybe there is something to the idea that she is only masquerading as the poster child for Depression, Self harm, drug/alcohol abuse, and Bi-polar dis-order. Money and fame are as addictive as any drug. Makes me wonder.

    As long as she is trying to help out other people and being MORE awareness to these issues, that is what really matters.

    … And of course her health. We all can sit and write all these things about Demi behind of our computers, but at the end of the day Demi is the only one who knows the truth.

    No just no. Demi admitted to still relapsing many times in the video. This means she is far from even half way helped. Demi is broken and needs to fix herself, before trying to help others on a global media based scale. If Demi has a really nasty relapse on Twitter or on stage, all her efforts prior will be for not.

    If you listen and watch Demi’s interview from last night on MTV, then you will know that she stated that she will NEVER be fix. It’s a huge part of daily battle that she will have to deal with for the rest of her life. She has a good support team behind now, so people are around her a lot more.

    She may never be fixed, but she can be better, and she is not better. And if she can’t ever be fixed, maybe this judgmental industry is not where she should be.

    and good support team, my ass. Her mother is a typical stage mom, worse than Dina Lohan, who would turn a blind eye to her daughter snorting coke, as long as it meant she can still have pretty nails and fresh highlights.

    I see your point about Demi’s mother and maybe I overlooked the “may’ or “never” part, but I know she has stated many times it’s a daily battle. I really do want Demi to get better. :/

    The one thing Demi had stated in this documentary repeatedly and wanted out of this whole special…The entire reason why she’s shared her story in the first place was for wanting to help anyone who’s been in the same place she has/had. After watching that documentary last night, I don’t understand how anyone could look at her and say she doesn’t have true intentions in what she’s trying to do…Whether your Demi’s fan or your not, whether her story’s made an impact on your life or it hasn’t, she’s making a world of difference on countless lives..And that’s what she’s doing it for.

    Demi is not fixed…She’s faced struggles in her recovery and has relapsed at points…She may face these struggles for the rest of her life. But Demi’s never gone a day in her life since leaving treatment without the courage to keep TRYING to be healthy and happy for herself. In the documentary Demi said that without music, she wouldn’t have a reason to live…Although almost everyone including myself thinks she should take more time of her own for her recovery away from the stressors and the pressures of her career…I truly believe that Demi being out there now performing, touring and working on music that’s keeping her encouraged to stay in recovery…I’m proud of Demi, and proud of her sharing her story in her hopes to help and inspire others…She’s truly inspired me, and no matter what I’ll always support her.

    :( we all do.

    (and before a hater replies with “I don’t!”, bare in mind what you’re saying: you’re saying you want someone to continue to struggle, to continue to feel pain and hurt and self-loathing. if that’s the case, you have more problems than Demi, and you’re more of a coward than she is because at least she had the guts to face her demons and get help, while you just sit behind a computer screen, typing evil words only meant to bring someone down.)

    Well inspirational or not, Demi should not be entertaining right now. If she has relapsed so many times then she should be getting the help she needs and not out in front of the very people that help make her self- conscious about herself.I don’t know if it is her family or her management, but someone should realize she is far from well and pushing her will only make her worse.JMHO

    She needs to get out of the limelight and work on herself. i knew that 3 months wasn’t long enough for her to get better. Her dependency on her fans is also not good or healthy.

    this. it’s both her team and family, by the way. I understand money-hungry people in the business, but her mom should know better than to put money before her daughter’s health. Dianna is such a stage mom though, worse than Dina Lohan, and can be bought. Dianna ignored it the first time, she’s ignoring it this time.

    Some of what Demi and MTV portrayed was very offensive. For the segment where Demi was talking about friends with flat stomachs they were running Barney in the background and basically the focus was on Selena. Stating that thin healthy people is the cause of Demi’s problems is the offensive part. Maybe if Demi was not pushed into pageants at a very young age, her bodily issues would not be as big an issue or even an issue at all. MTV should have focused more on the initial causes of Demi’s issues. As a thin healthy person who takes good care of myself this whole show just looked like MTV was basically enabling Demi to believe she had valid excuses for her actions by blaming others.

    -________- You and I were clearly not watching the same documentary. Never did Demi or anyone say that it was the fault of other kids with flat stomachs and that they were the reason for Demi’s insecurities and underlying cause for her eating disorder. Demi had self-image issues from the age of four, years before she met Selena or was on “Barney.” Demi herself said she cannot remember a time she was happy with herself or felt good enough; the self-image issues were always there. If anything, seeing the flat-stomach kids only furthered cemented her thoughts of not being good enough, as she was pretty much the only one who was a bit big, and no one ever wants to be the black sheep. However, I’m sure treatment has taught Demi that this was not the fault of those children; you can’t blame a Victoria’s Secret model for “looking good” and you don’t (in your eyes). People who suffer look for any excuse, and “they look good and I don’t, so I hate myself and it’s their fault” is included. They weren’t enabling her beliefs that she had valid reasons to blame others, they were just understanding where Demi was coming from and where her mind was when she was in that dark place.

    Now I don’t agree with Demi’s constant tweets about “real women have curves” and essentially making naturally thin women with fast metabolisms feel bad about themselves; it’s reverse bullying. You’re still putting someone down for something they cannot control. I would compare it to Affirmative Action. It’s something I think Demi needs to work on, and understand that not ALL thin women hate their bodies, have body issues, are unhealthy, and are making bad choices to stay that way. Just like not all women are built to be thin, not all women are built to be thick. But I do believe her heart is in the right place and she has good intentions. She’s not trying to put those thin women down, she’s just trying to raise thicker women up.

    l?veislouder What I saw was when they were discussing the thin flat stomached people was the images of Barney playing in the background. This to me was like a shot at Selena, because she was more the focus on the screen. Maybe I just saw it different than you did. My problem and you even said it, her issues were from 4 and that was around the time Dallas and Demi were pushed into the pageant world. My real issue is that the main problem and possibly the cause of her extreme issues seems to go back to then. I personally felt that the focus of the show was more on older Demi which means they did not really look for the real reason. Sorry but that is just what I got from this. I honestly felt it was more to bash the healthy than to address Demi’s issues. To me it just looked like DAMAGE control for Demi’s career than honest, from the heart concern for her fans.

    Anon, no, they didn’t go deep into the cause of her problems, but I doubt that’s what Demi was going for, nor would that really be helpful to a struggling audience via television. However, I would definitely agree that Demi’s pageant days could definitely be a link to her self-image issues.
    Back to the Barney scene, that’s all it was: a scene. One scene out of an hour-long documentary. The rest (and the entire thing, for me) was about Demi’s suffering, how she felt about herself, and how she dealt with it. I don’t think one scene could outweigh the overall message the whole documentary was trying to convey, which I felt was filled with intentions of extending a helping, concerned hand.
