As a celebrity gossip blogger, I take great joy in writing about trash, but, every so often, I have to blog on some real shit, and those days are always kind of rough. Today is one of those days, as Demi Lovato has been hospitalized for what looks like a heroin overdose.
Demi has been really open over the years about her battles with mental health, alcohol, and cocaine, but even I was blown away by this tragic heroin news.
The LAPD reported that they responded to a home in Hollywood at 11:37am this morning and Demi is now being treated, though her condition remains unknown.
Last month, Lovato revealed in her song “Sober” that she had suffered a relapse after beng sober for six years, but I don’t think any of us expected her relapse to involve heroin.
This is super fucking sad, and I honestly wish I could weigh in on it more, but, tbh, I’ve been really lucky in the sense that shit like hero scares the hell out of me
I grew up in the 90’s when it seemed like everyone was doing heroin, but everyone was ending up dead because of it, too. Whenever I think of heroin I think of River Phoenix dying or the movie Requiem for a Dream, so I genuinely can’t imagine why anyone would do it, but, again, I guess that puts me in a lucky position.
Hopefully Demi doesn’t become another tragic child star story or sad statistic and she pulls through this and gets help and is able to become clean again. This is sadly one of those stories where I don’t get to make any cheap jokes, and I love cheap jokes. Luckily, I’m blogging about Bristol Palin next, so that should take away some of my sadness.
