In an emotional new video message to her fans, Demi Lovato opens up about the personal issues that drove her to seek treatment.
"I wanted to send you guys a message 'cause I know that you've seen me out and about and I wanted to let you know that I am back and [at] home. Welcome to my home," a happy Lovato says in a video posted on Cambio.com. "But I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the support that you've given me along the way."
In November, Lovato canceled her concert tour and entered a treatment facility for help with "emotional and physical issues"; she returned to her Los Angeles home in January.
"Your support is what got me through this," Lovato tells fans in the video. "So I couldn't be more thankful for everything you guys sent me. The journey that I've been on has been very, very difficult over the past few months. I was dealing with issues that I know not only girls just my age but girls of all ages are dealing with. I hope to one day raise awareness of everything, so that I can help people too, just like you guys helped me through this rough time."
Lovato adds, "I can't tell you how much light you brought into my life in probably the darkest time of my life. Without you guys I wouldn't be here today."
The actress/singer hints that she has some exciting projects in the pipeline and is looking forward to getting back to work.
"I can't wait to see you in person," she says. "I love you all and I couldn't have done this without you."
of course like your web site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will certainly come back again.
Hello There. I discovered your blog the usage of msn. This is a really neatly written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and come back to learn more of your helpful info. Thanks for the post. I'll definitely comeback.
Excellent points altogether, you simply received a brand new reader. What may you recommend in regards to your publish that you simply made some days ago? Any certain?

I see a lot of news stories like this one. A person I never heard of has had personal problems that I never knew about. This has affected her career (but I have no idea what she does). Happily now, due to fan support, her unspecified problems have been resolved and everything is now fine. Please continue to purchase her cd's, concert tickets, fashion line, cosmetics, colon cleanser, or whatever it is she is selling.
It is interesting what one person assumes to be common knowledge yet another person has had absolutely no awareness of it at all. Just yesterday I saw a commercial for "New Deal Furniture." I asked the acquaintence who was watching TV with me, "What does furniture have to do with Franklin Roosevelt?" My friend said, "What the hell are you talking about?"
Who cares...get a grip.
I suffered anexoria/bulimia as a teenager.. I got the help I needed early on before it went way out of hand.. kudos for her to do the same. Everyone has a "dark era" in their life.. She has young fans who look up to her, so this video expressing what her fans mean to her, and how they helped her is amazing. & to the haters.. im glad none of you have ever had anything ever go wrong in your life.
Oh my gosh I had a ham sandwich for lunch...I had mustard and pickles on mine...and a Tab.
I had a ham sandwich for lunch.
Jeet, you're an idiot. plain and simple. You're one of these people that just has to make themselves feel superior to everyone else so you as sympathetic and empathetic to the celebrity losers when in fact, you really don't care one bit about them. If makes your feel like you're better than everyone else because you invoke God and family and your oh so important job. I'll wager your and insignificant little troll that lives alone and has nothing but the internet and these blogs in your life. Such a sad little person.
Hard to raise awareness on issues that you can't/won't name.
These posts are a waste of time.
Then why are you posting? Isn't that a little hypocritical of you?
I'm a younger woman, and i love Demi Lovato! I've read all of these posts and it makes me sad that others are willing to put in time to beat down other people! We all need to lift others, not put them down, no matter who they are! Our neighbors, our family, or even celebrities. Make the world a better place, don't make it worse for someone else. You know...Don't hate...appreciate... :)
You poor dear.
We are being so mean.
Her publicist needs to get the attention off this now- especially since the factors are non-specific. They make he look inpaired- not "recovered". She needs better advice- and far less make-up.
Where are the parents in all this?
Why is this world full of heartless people?
Why is CNN not using their filters?
And last but not least. . . . Why can't we all get along?
Here ya go Demi. A fresh pack of razor blades for you.
Uh, her fans helped her get through ... What?
She is so talented.
...yo man and what about fruit salad...why I want a bunch of fruits in my salad...yuck yuck yuck. SO!! How many NGGERS we got in da house. Come on yall, give it up for the ngger..."
Mmmmm. What I would do to be able to fart in her soup
She is kinda cute and is giving me some morning Wood. I want a BJ Bytch!
Text up kunckleheads many of us have done things we sometimes regret. An it is funny that when we speak our minds it is ok but when it is a celeb they are racist or something else. She messed up
Did this lil ms johnny come lately whiner off herself last night?
i could care less about her talentless sillyness. she's 18 years old and has yet to grow up to be a woman. the jonas brother war right is dumping her, she's screwed up because she's not grounded like she should be. hope she straightens herself out and stops acting so stupid. be responsible for yourself and you'll see how better life can be for you..
Wow!!! I just farted!!
I couldn't agree with you more...This morning I heard about the man in NY, who punched out a lady OVER A PARKING SPACE. Then left the scene. She's hospitalized with extremely serious injuries (this is wrong on so many levels). Reading these bullying, pointless comments seem to be the cyber version of that incident. CNN, please filter. If it's not directly related to the article at hand, do those of us who actually read cnn.com a favor, and leave it out.
@Pete, shutup and beat your meat....until complete.......your opinion is shi$.......no one cares about it......now go from this place......and teabag nemo's face........you are a disgrace.
I've always had a way with the ladies.
mad hater, your poem is sooo romantic.
Who is Demi Lobato?
Miss Lovato is a spoiled brat looking for attention
Is being a clownshoe bad? I don't know.
Wow, these comments make me really feel nauseous. If this is what we are as Americans and how we treat each other as human beings when we are anonymous then God help us. What is wrong with everyone?
I would totally let her fart in my mouth.
Ok who is this person?
Loved her in, "About Last Nite" and "Ghost". -Art
Wrong Demi, smart one.
So she's 1) a young person 2) an actress and 3) had some issues......if not for item 2 she'd be the majority of americans. give the chick a break
Gawd, you guys are such clownshoes.
Sounded like a Bill Hicks quote to me foo.
I would stick my ding a ling, in her poopy o ring. Then she would lick it clean like she was Charlie Sheen.
Nemo, stop quoting Tool songs. The band does not approve of ignorant kids like you misrepresenting their message. If you want to be a stupid troll, that is your decision...but leave Tool out of it please.
While I agree with her decision to seek help, I disagree with her lifestyle. She started acting at young age for Barney. From my perspective,It is ok start a child acting at a young age as long as you do get them to any shows or commercial until later on in life. I believe it is important to teach your child how to behave and the values of their actions come into play in their everyday life. Getting started with TV shows at young age equals diaster. At least that is my opinion.
I am also surprised by the offensive domments posted. How would you know what Demi has been through? She's only human and can only handle as much emotional stress as she can. At least she had the sense to deal with her problems by being in rehab. Things like this should not be joked about because there are many people who have reached a low point in life like Demi. Good luck Demi.
While I agree that it was a complete waste of time reading this article and the subsequent replies, there are a few issues I would like to address. First, to miss Demi, my sisters look up to you and what ever problems you are having probably cannot compare in the long run to the issues they are dealing with right now. Therefore you do not need to be public with some ambiguous problem just to gain more attention for your distress. Secondly, there is no need to be so degrading and disrespectful about this situation, everyone who wants to be immature or pointlessly argue with the immature really needs to find a new hobby. Thirdly, the fact that this article exists and has so much hype surrounding it just shows how backwards this nation has become, where we care more about some alleged problem some disney star has or had, rather than the education problem happening in Wisconsin. Americans need to understand the better management of their time, and I admit that I fall into this group as well because of my own post.
oh man, i just came in my poopy pants, demi you are a fishy, smelly old ratbag ho
this young lady needs to wrap her tight dirty star fish on my joystick this will solve her dilemma, i understand she likes to play and eat the poo, i can offer more than she could ever handle.
fugly looking ho isn't she? dang
nemo get a life u useless crap
shutup lee ur an idiot
Keep your head up Demi
Actually, a little further instruction if I may.......
Demi, keep you head...
Up, then down, then up again, then down again......in rapid succession over and over again.......until the magic happens.
I think my IQ just dropped 30 points after reading this crap. Do some of you not have anything better to do than sit behind a computer all day, watching for people to reply to your comments do you can try to "one up them" and being a drain on society?
You all are talking about her making racist comments and you are on here dissing "rednecks" and Mexicans. Is that not racist?
You may have the right to say what you want, but many of you could do it with a little more tact. This eating doo-doo, masturbation, hate talk is out of control. I would hope that people had more common sense than they do. By the way, your right to free speech only goes so far. When it infringes on the rights of someone else, then you no longer have the right.
You all don't even know the girl and you are saying horrible things about her. What if it was you this story was about? Would you care of these things were said about you? Grow up and think before you speak . . .
You know you idiots demi has some problems just like every child star the stress the fame the emotional turmoil demis gping through is like brttney spears etc so all you need to FULLY understand demi is human too ............
Deli lovato is a useless pile of flesh...I want her to commit suicide...now that's news!!!!!....and here's ted with the weather..
Me to butterbean...only difference is I would keep her around a few days....give her something to remember when she was dead!...THAT'S RIGHT I SAID THAT...FREEDOM OF SPEECH TOOL....THE MORE YA TRY and take my rights...the worse I will speak....2012 can't come fast enough for ya dumb..inbred
Memo and buttface....err...butterbean,
One of you insert your head in the others ass, then repeat. That way all of us will be sparred your stupid, useless, senseless BS about nothing. As for Nemo, one post your a man, the next your a mom with 3 kids......are you confused as to which way your pendulum swings?
Judging by your posts, your moral compass surely does not point north. You are pathetic, a real true waste of human potential. Follow the guys in the Geico commercial and return to the cavern underneath you rock. Take buttface....err....butterbean with you for companionship.....MORON.
If she were my girfriend I would pump her rump full of my ManGoo, then pump her full of drugs, toss her over the bridge, say it was suicide and collect the insurance money.
Wow yallll childish fame set up the typical trap andd shee fall why cant u jusst bee there 4 her
My ole long hairy root is swinging in the breeze and will be there for here night, day, any ole time...
Both of you are about as smart as a can of rusty nails. Ole grandad, take your root and shove it up Maya's behind.
Learn yourself a little English before you embarass us humans again with your senseless, worthless dribble.
After reading some of these rude and crude comments; I realize all of the sick and diluted indviduals who discredit our internet society. Freedom of expression is one thing, but complete lack of tact and empathy is another. If there was a filter button on this blog; there'd only be a handful of comments encourgaing this young woman. Very sad and scary times we live in today.
FU and EAT ME! You dont like it dont read it OR come over and do something about it...*POOT* <-Right in ya Face.
Who asked you? What would you like us to post? "Oh she's so brave! You go!"
As if she had real problems – You must really identify with her (chubby, sing in the shower, not as pretty as you pretend to be.)
This isn't even news – It's product placement.
No new info. Didn't just happen. Heck, no specifics.
Don't you think CNN knows that?
Demi Lovato is a fu***** idiot who needs a life.
She has an eating disorder and a meth problem....disney sure pumps out role models huh....and your all a bunch of slaves
damn leave the young lady alone sometimes its hard ti carry a huge load like being a celebrity always in the public eye most of you haters talkin crap wouldnt know that becuz youve never been there and until your in your in her shoes step off. . Only God can judge this young girl you fricken haters. . obviously she did something right to get your attention positive or negative! – Latin Rap Artist " El Mero Perro"
Shut your mouth you latin SOB. We are sick to death of your f-ing mexican jumpin beans. This girl cant sing for squat and the sooner she slices up her face with a butter knife the better. As for you Im gonna take a crap in your mothers eyebrows while you watch. OLE'its a taco day.
One must be sure to consume only the freshest and steamiest of the doo doo as it is a delicacy to be savored. Of that only consume the middle portion as it has be most fiber, vitamins and minerals. A glass of warm milk or hot Pee is a good follow up to wash it all down.
Lets be a more Healthy America.
This message brought to you by the Doo Doo manufacturers of America.
woooooo – i didnt know she hit somebody. who did she hit ? hitting people is just mean. knowing this makes me have greater appreciation for all the negative comments about her. i always did think she was traileer traassh from alabama but wasnt sure until now. DISNEY should fire her buttt.
I may be an old fart but I never heard of her.
She is just a kid, she really has no idea what "darkest times" really mean yet, this was just a bump in the road. Imagine what it must have been like for that young lady she punched for no reason other then her immaturity and jealousy.
It is really sad how some young stars cannot handle fame.
aaand barney is gaaay. cartman told me so. he said barney tried to touch his fireman.
What the heck happened to this chick anyway?
i know rite! it just says she feels sad and all tht junk but it dont even say what the hell happened to her?!?!?!?
all this commotion for some sob story. demi just another famous chick who think she so pretty.
I am not a jeew. Just because my parents make me go to jewbilee does not make me one.
Time to hit the road back to Barney-Someone needs a great big hug from me to you!
If Ms. Lovatto is gettin all lonesome like i gotta good cooon dog she kin breed with. Its a genuine blue heeler huntin dog. I bet we would sure nuff get some good pups outa that Demi.
Turds are high in fiber, so any logical person should eat their own doodoo to stay regular.
Demi is very very ugly fer an american girl. Here in alabamer we would use her fer cooon huntin.l
Stupid hick, sister lovin, dog dick suckin, redneck loser.
In our country we grow the sacred tigger. It much rarer than your american tyger. Like others i think she need tigger blood to clense her system. It make her very strong in 3 days. No need doo doo as much.
Hey I'm a mom of three....no one cares!...and your god you talk of...hates you!...just thought I would remind you....here's bill with the weather!
In my country it customary to eat doo doo when a man child is born. Demi si good girl and only eat the sacred doo doo during celebration of jewbilee. She not eat doo doo to excess. Her good gitl.
All you aspiring entertainers out there listen up. You need to go out and get an 8-ball of coke, do it all up and check into a treatment center as so as possible, if you expect to get anywhere in this business, that is.
As a mother of three beautiful daughters I am so happy for this young lady and her family. It must be hard to watch a loved one struggle with problems that are hard to overcome. But she has done it and hooray for her. My children watch the disney channel and love watching Miss Lovato. She is a beautiful, talented young lady that has alot to offer this world. May God be with her. And maybe her plight might be able to help another young lady seek help instead of the wrong resolution.
I commend Ms. Lovato for seeking the help she needed, for whatever reason she needed. Girls and young women face many challenges. Money and fame don't change many of those challenges. As the mother of two young girls, I hope they can one day use this as an example of strength, not weakness.
Celebs actually hate fans. They say they love them to get their money.
She sounds like a real hoot, to bad she is trying to get better.
SHE NEED TIGGER BLOOD. GET FROM OLD CHINEE MAN. MUCH BETTER THAN POOP. SHE DRINK TIGGER BLOOD SHE BECOME STRONG LIKE PANTHER. NO EAT DOOO DOOO ANYMORE.
Tiger blood moron......There is no such thing as Tigger blood, because...
"The wonderful thing about tigers is tigers are a wonderful thing, their tops are made of rubber, and their bottoms are made of spring"
Tiggers are cartoon characters.....
What a Moron..
Stupid chink......me so sorry.....
I can tell how much people love her by these comments! LOL
is it just me but isnt she(?) way fat? Does he use duct tape?
i had lots of physical and emotional issues as a teenger
guess what, they don't get away and life gets harder
good luck demi
DEMI IS A POOOOOP EATER. GROSS !
Haaaaha...lee...you act like you know her...ya sound like that church freak on here earlier. "I help meth head moms see their retarded children". You see...people are getting tired of hollywood elite losers that attract losers like you..soon..the whole country is crawling with you bleeding hearts.....charlie sheen..throw him in jail...lohan...throw her in jail...you don't even know what her "problem" was. And think about it...WHO CARES!
All I have to say to you- you poor,poor excuse of a human being...
Obviously YOU cared enough to throw your twisted 2 cents in to this conversation.
Let me guess... When your parents left for work, you raided daddy's change jar looking for it???
Or was it in the sofa cushions in their basement where you reside???
I honestly believe if you would have looked a little harder on their bed... That stain represents the best part of what coulda been. MORON!!!
She is a buttt spelunker. That is why she was in the druuunktank. She needs some dragon bloood from Charlie.
At least she admitted she had a problem and dealt with it cordially. She is actually a beautiful and great singer. Quit talking negative about her. Everyone has a bad moment in their life and she got better. This is her comeback. Punks!
It must be a busy day in the trailer parks all across America......all this senseless blogging by redneck retard losers.......don't you redneck losers have to go get another case of bud....impregnate your sisters.....take a dump....xoff with you.
Why didnt she bring a flashight if it was so dang dark ? I bet she was gerbillling and had crawled up in Cathy Griffins buttt and got lost.
Flush twice. Its a long way to the grill.
Hey jeet...no one gives a drip!...and attacking my intelligence is funny...very grown up of ya...lemme guess..your still in school...lemme guess..5th grade...by the way disney channel watcher...nemo is latin...not the name of a fish. Go kill yourself...please.
Actually Memo is latin. Nemo is the fish in Finding Nemo. Memo is short for Guillermo
Meanie doo doo heads! Y'all like losers. She rocks! Yey!
Someone needs to reign this girl in. Dis you hear what this little racist Demi said ? She is well on her way to becoming another Charlie Sheen or David Duke. She sure is a poor roll model for children.
Nemo, get back in school, please. I was responding to your comment that you sent 15 mins. ago:
March 8th, 2011 1:45 pm ET
Hey jeet..ya wanna show compassion…quit your useless job…and go to haiti…or the congo…or try writing letters to help release prisoners wrongly accused…this girl is a cry baby scab…let her put a blade to her wrist a...
Obviously, you cared enough about what I do to assume that I do nothing. Point refuted. Enroll in school today. Do not let another day pass by...A mind is a terrible thing to waste!
You're an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are filtering nothing on this site.....all you bas ackward rednecks could never say this crap if CNN had their filters on......Oops....someone is going to have their pee pee slapped and their birthday taken away for this.
Poo poo, and doo doo......your are what you eat.......schmucks.....
I'm sure jesus will be real proud...idiot no one cares what you do ...
Ever wonder if she got a case of the prego momas.....maybe mogantaller could speak up a little here.......hey Henry......did you suck the life outta her dude?
I would quit my job, however, I have too many charitable interests that depend on my contributions. Unlike yourself, I'm not just on this message board talking the talk, I'm walking the walk. And, regarding prisoners, I just partnered with my local church for a reunion of incarcerated Mom's and their kids. I've seen firsthand heartbroken kids, lacking love, re-united with their Moms. What have you done lately???
No one cares about you poser. The story is about Demi Lovato. People have the right to say anything they want about her. She's in the public eye and like it or not, it's part of the life. As for you, go play with yourself until your mommy calls you for supper.
I'm glad she found treatment for her chronic masturbation problem.
Nemo, before you comment again, maybe you should get out of the water and into a grammar book..."You're" showing your ignorance. Retarded Baby...enough said.
nemo what are you a fish? you are just as retarded as doo doo.
Jeet...your an idiot too...screw her and all these insecure actresses and dope head celebs...I say carpet bomb LA...idiot..act like you give a horses drip.
most obvious troll ive ever seen
I think one Demi is enough but now we have this little toothpick sized mental midget to listen too. Oh no...not another poor little rich girl. Woe ie me.
You don't have to personally know people to show a little compassion Doo Doo. But, why should I expect any different...your name says it all!
You're an idiot! Go play in traffic.
oh shut up angella...you act like you know her....another idiot here!
By the sound of these comments, I'm not sure if I'm on CNN's website or MTV's??? These are some of the most childish, ignorant, tacky & unempathetic comments that I've ever seen on this news site. This young lady had a problem and sought treatment. I'm not saying she should be commended, but she shouldn't be degraded either. GROW UP PEOPLE!
Why thank you!!
Growing up? That's not happening on these boards. Bored trolls with nothing better to do have the free will and right to go about as they please... who are you to stop them? Their parents aren't going to stop them either because they have no idea what's going on (nor do today's parents care enough). Tough luck, Jeet.
Don't feed the trolls. Otherwise, you're just asking for it.
"By the sound of these comments, I'm not sure if I'm on CNN's website or MTV's???"
My thoughts exactly.
Okay she didn't shave her head or bash cars or showed off privates while stepping out of a vehicle. The girl got a grip before she fell apart. I am glad she resolved this windstorm before it turned into a hurricane. For once a starlet with beauty and brains.
Im glad none of you who wrote mean comments have never had a personal problem! I hope she proves u all wrong!
Don't worry, Angela. You're not the only person with a soul. I hope she gets her life in order and enjoys every success.
Sorry, but who is she? I guess I'll google her.
Oh my poor little rich life...get a grip ya freaking idiot...I can't wait till the pacific ocean takes LA...learn to swim...demi...idiot
you are sad.
Who cares if you don't actually tell us what it is!
Yes, she is a celebrity. No, you do not have a god given right to stick your nose into her private business. If she had wanted you to know at this time, she would have said something. Do you want complete strangers poking their noses into everything in YOUR life?
Ewwww...why would anyone want to stick their nose in her privates? P-U to you! ;)
Can you repeat that again? This time without the chronic stupidity?
Idiots like you can work for the TMZ.
Yeah you dumba**, you think that might be part of what drove her to lose control? She is gorgeous and took steps to get herself back in line.....more power to her.
Such strong advice coming from someone trolling behind a computer.
I wonder what else she will open up for us?
Pimp.....your shi& is limp....your face a disgrace.....too much into race.....go on down the road.....hang out wit da toads......
Loser redneck retard......
End it.....jump from a very high bridge wearing your britches, into the river of crap.....from wenst you came a crawling........loser
You're such a moron. Please, for the sake of everyone here, move along now.
Dude, she's barely legal,
Young and cute sure.
Gorgeous? That's a stretch.
