From appearances from Elton John and Christina Aguilera to the pop singer’s 2018 overdose, here is everything we know about Demi Lovato’s upcoming docuseries Dancing with the Devil.
Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil is Lovato’s second YouTube documentary set to release on March 23rd! Lovato’s team and YouTube announced the new documentary series shortly after the new year, and fans have been anxiously waiting to hear more. Since the announcement, Lovato has made television appearances to talk about the docuseries and the new life chapter it’s leading into. Additional details about the docuseries were recently shared in the YouTube trailer that was released on February 17th.
What exactly can we expect from Lovato’s third documentary? Here is everything we know about Dancing with the Devil.
Demi will be opening up about her near-fatal overdose in 2018 for the first time.
The most shocking news revealed about her 2018 overdose was that the experience left her with three strokes and a heart attack during her hospitalization. Lovato revealed on a TCA panel that the overdose caused physical damage to her body. “I was left with brain damage, and I still deal with the effects of that today. I don’t drive a car because I have blind spots in my vision,” admitted Lovato.
Demi, her family, and friends will be talking through some of the most challenging periods in her life.
The trailer revealed various snippets of confessionals from friends and family members recounting emotional moments during the singer’s recovery. Her friend and actor, Matthew Scott Montgomery, can be heard in the trailer asking the producers, “Are we talking about heroin? Are we doing this?”
Topics of trauma, substances, and physical, emotional, and mental health.
Lovato will be exploring a variety of topics within each episode. Everything from her past traumas and the effects of substance abuse to the mental tolls of working in the music industry will be included. She shares that some of her experiences in the industry contributed to her breaking point.
Celebrities showing support
Christina Aguilera is seen in the trailer of the docuseries stating, “Now more than ever, she’s taken hold of that power,” referring to the life lessons Lovato has learned. The rock legend, Elton John, is another celebrity that makes an appearance in the doc. Both artists will be contributing to the conversation about the dark struggles of living in the spotlight.
While Lovato has openly talked about her personal experiences, she admitted that she wasn’t completely honest in her past documentaries. In Dancing with the Devil, Lovato will be her authentic self, honestly sharing everything from her darkest moments. In an appearance on The Ellen Show, Lovato stated “I wanted to tell the world, ‘Hey, this is what happened, this is how I got through it, and hopefully this can help you too.’” The impact of Lovato’s past has led her on a new spiritual journey. One that involves spiritual healing, helping others in need (even those who don’t struggle with mental illness), and of course, more music.
The first two episodes of Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil are set to air worldwide on March 23rd on Demi’s YouTube channel. The remaining episodes will air weekly following the release.
