We all for sure have heard about the upcoming docuseries 'Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil?' Right? If not, then come out and stop living under a rock. The American singer will release her docuseries via Youtube on March 23 where she will tell her story regarding her former drug dependence and the consequences it brought to her life.

This week, Demi Lovato appeared on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' and commented about it. “I talk about a lot [in the docuseries]," began Demi, "The world has been so loving and accepting of me telling my story and just, there's been so much love and support” For sure, we cannot measure exactly the artist's fanbase, but we can see more or less how much love she is receiving through her social media account, where the singer has over 99 million followers, almost reaching the 100 million fans.


She continues explaining her experience by recounting her story “What's great is we live in a time when nobody's perfect and we're not gonna get role models by watching people not make mistakes. We are going to meet and learn from our role models who have overcome their deepest, darkest struggles." I wanted to show everyone -- first I wanted to set the record straight," Demi Lovato continued, adding that "a lot of stories were going around that time that didn't really know what exactly had happened." And surely we can agree. Time back there were many tales and gossip around her person and nothing was clarified until now. "I just wanted to tell the world, 'Hey, this is what happened, this is how I got through it, and hopefully this can help you too,'" she described. "Because this journey has been such a wild ride but I've learned so much and I can't wait to share it with the world."

"Hosting 'The Ellen Show' last year was the catalyst for my need and desire to express myself and my story to the fullest extent," she said at a Television Critics Association panel. "I knew that one appearance on a television show wasn't going to cut it, I was not going to be able to share my whole story in one interview whether it was with a magazine or whatever it is. That's why I wanted to turn it into a documentary."

She then emphasized she has no regrets of what happened in her life, because all of it, the good and the faulty bits of it has led her to grow as a person "It was a painful journey, and I look back and sometimes I get sad when I think of the pain that I had to endure to overcome what I have, but I don't regret anything," she shared. "... I'm so proud of the person I am today. And I'm so proud that people get to see it in this documentary and I couldn't be more grateful that I had someone by my side."
