There have been so many child stars in the entertainment industry over the years and, while many of these child stars do manage to go on to enjoy a long and successful career in the business without too much trouble, there have been those who have struggled to cope with the fame and fortune at such a young age.
Demi Lovato has not only become one of the biggest music stars in the business but she has also enjoyed her fair share of success on the acting scene, but she has never hidden from the fact that it was all a bit too much for her. Demi has always been open about her alcohol dependency, which led to her going into rehab and giving up the drink since 2010, but she has admitted that it is still a battle to always stay sober.
Lovato explained, "'I think what was difficult about the process was being honest about where I am in my life today. Telling the world that I'm not the poster child for recovery. Sometimes it is a struggle, and sometimes I still deal with issues that I have suffered from in the past."
She added, "It's a challenge to maintain recovery, and I talk about that in the film. So, for me, it's like kind of admitting that I'm not ... Obviously I'm not perfect, but admitting that on camera. I want to be the best role model that I can be for my fans, so by admitting that I'm not perfect, it's kind of weird for me."
The film Demi Lovato is talking about is her new YouTube documentary Simply Complicated, which will talk about all aspects of her life and her career. We definitely recommend you give it a watch.
