The fearless 25-year-old star, who has openly discussed her issues with depression and addiction, revealed her anxious parents banned her from her sister for fear of her being a bad influence and to help her get clean.
"There were a few [interventions], but the final one, everyone was like, 'We are no longer going to leave, we aren't leaving, '" Demi, 25, explained. "I always needed saving", she sings.
Her new album, Tell Me You Love Me, is in stores today, and she says it represents the next step in her evolution as an artist.
The list of producers that helped Demi make "Tell Me You Love Me" a reality is as follows: Oak Felder, Stint, John Hill, "Downtown" Trevor Brown, Zaire Koalo, Jonas Jeberg, Anton Kuhl, Mitch Allan, Scott Robinson, Ido Zmishlany, DJ Mustard, Sermstyle, Kevin Hissink, Taylor Parks, Rush Hr., Jax Jones, and Mark Ralph. This time I knew...
She added: "I don't think that any of my songs are necessarily "made up". I can't blame her, she's not wrong. "That's how hard it got and that was even with somebody [with me], I had a sober companion, somebody who was watching me 24/7 and living with me [and] I was able to hide it from them as well". Demi started out as a child actress, starring as a cast regular on Barney and Friends before finding her way onto the Disney Channel with a brief role in As the Bell Rings. Born in 1992 in Dallas, Texas, she was raised in a household that included her mother (a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader) and her two sisters, the youngest of whom launched her own acting career in 2008. It's like, "Hey! Here's my feelings for you!"' And although the record is her most personal to date, Demi won't be revealing who the songs are specifically inspired by any time soon.
The album is filled with emotional songs that showcase Demi's range and talent, as well as some classic Demi bops to give our hearts a break (I'm so sorry); in other words, people are loving it. Fans aren't the only people living for this new album, though; Demi's rumored girlfriend Lauren Abedini showcased her support for one of the album's songs "Lonely" on her Instagram story the morning of the release.
