In the YouTube trailer, we first see multiple clips of her past roles and performances and ends with a black and white image of her hand in a hospital bed with an IV.
“I had three strokes. I had a heart attack. My doctors said I had five to ten more minutes.” Lovato reveals to us about her condition during her hospitalization.
The docuseries features multiple family members and friends of Lovato, giving an insight on her life at the time of the overdose. One of her friends stated that “she should be dead,” referring to how close the 28 year old singer was to dying. Lovato and the docuseries’ director, Michael D. Ratner attended the panel at the documentary’s Television Critics Association on Wednesday to go more in depth about the effects on her health.
“I was left with brain damage, and still deal with the effects of that today. I don’t drive a car, because I have blind spots on my vision,” she reveals. “And I also for a long time had a really hard time reading. It was a big deal when I was able to read out of a book, which was like two months later because my vision was so blurry.”
Despite the emotional and physical struggles that Lovato has dealt with in the past two years, she is determined to stay strong and continue on with the chance she has gotten at life again. “I’ve had a lot of lives, like my cat, you know, I’m on my ninth life,” she says. “I’m ready to get back to doing what I love, which is music.”
Demi Lovato: Dancing With The Devil will premiere on YouTube on March 23rd.
