The first full trailer for Demi Lovato’s new, four-part documentary series just dropped, and the singer doesn’t hold anything back.
“I’m just going to say it all,” she says at the top of the trailer. “And then if we, like, don’t want to use any of it, we can take it out.”
In the January announcement of Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil, Lovato said the series will explore her “darkest point,” and this trailer confirms that.
“I had three strokes. I had a heart attack,” Lovato says about the events following her 2018 overdose. “My doctors said that I had 5 to 10 more minutes.” We also hear the actual 911 call from that day, plus interviews with friends, family, and celebrities, including Elton John.
“Are we talking about heroin? Are we doing that?” Lovato’s friend asks the camera at one point.
“I can’t believe y’all are doing this,” another adds.
“I’ve had a lot of lives,” Lovato says. “You know, I’m on my ninth. I’m ready to get back to doing what I love, which is making music.”
