Demi Lovato has fought a very public battle with alcohol and drugs, and she recently celebrated six years of sobriety -- but in her new song, “Sober,” she admits that she’s relapsed. The song is a confessional piano ballad with Lovato singing in an anguished voice that she’s no longer sober and vowing to get help.
“People” magazine notes that some fans suspected that Lovato had relapsed in April when singer Hayley Kiyoko posted a photo with Lovato on Instagram where Lovato appears to be holding a cup filled with a yellow liquid. The same photo was posted elsewhere with the cup blurred out. At the time, Lovato responded, “I don’t have to defend anything but it was Red Bull.”
