Demi Lovato: 'I'm just grateful to be alive'

Demi Lovato attends the Brent Shapiro Foundation For Alcohol and Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular where she addressed the audience and accepted the Spirit of Sobriety award

Demi Lovato has hit the milestone of five years sober and is grateful to have made it this far.

"Every day is a battle", Lovato told People at the event.

Speaking with Us Weekly at the Summer Spectacular Benefitting the Brent Shapiro Foundation For Drug Prevention on September 9, 2017, Demi Lovato opened up about her struggle with addiction.

Now she's back with yet another eye-catching look that took the plunge to the next level at this year's Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular, held in Los Angeles.

Abedini is a DJ and music producer who calls herself KITTENS. I'm grateful that CAST centres came into my life.

And the Sorry Not Sorry hitmaker isn't just helping people struggling with addiction, as she recently paid a visit to Houston, Texas, to lend a helping hand to the victims affected by Hurricane Harvey. "It was great working with children". That assistance was critical and she is paying it forward by becoming a part owner of the centers to help other people in need.

In 2015, Demi - who was with actor Wilmer Valderrama on-and-off for a number of years from 2010 - all-but confirmed that her song, Cool For The Summer, was about her personal bisexual experiences. Then she added, "All of my songs are based off of personal experiences".

She appeared on the British talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, and said of the suggestive lyrics, "I am not confirming and I'm definitely not denying".

And with a new sound - "I think what'll surprise fans the most for this new album is how R&B I'm going", she says - comes new subject matter.

The 25 year old was snapped by excited fans while spending the day with Lauren Abedini. "So many times I wanted to relapse but sat on my hands and begged God to relieve the obsession", Lovato wrote. Her Instagram is filled with posts about self-love, and she's releasing some of her rawest music to date, like "You Don't Do It For Me Anymore", a track that's actually about breaking up with her former self-not a significant other.
