Former Disney star Demi Lovato said she wished she had waited until she got her “s*** figured out” before releasing her documentaries detailing her battle with addiction and said “sobriety” is the only thing for her.

During the 30-year-old singer/actress interview with Alternative Press, Lovato talked about her ongoing battle that she’s detailed in three different documentaries.

“Honestly, I’m really sick of watching myself, and I think other people probably are too,” the “Camp Rock” star admitted. “And if they aren’t, then they can watch my music videos.”

“I wish I would have waited until I had my s*** figured out more because now it’s cemented,” she added. “Sobriety is what works for me and nothing else.”

In the “Sober” hitmaker’s documentary “Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil,” she opened up about her drug overdose and just how close she came to death, Page Six noted. Around the same time, she also shared that she was “California Sober” when asked about her sobriety, meaning only smoking marijuana and drinking occasionally.

During a recent appearance on “The Zane Lowe Show on Apple Music,” Lovato talked about her sobriety, going back to rehab in 2021, and how she’s been dealing with the guilt of surviving the overdose she had in July 2018.

“Everything that I write about comes from personal experiences, and I had gone through a rough time last year,” Lovato shared. “And I went back to treatment, and when I came out, I had all of this unresolved trauma that like I hadn’t dealt with, or that I started to deal with in treatment. And then when I came out, I was like, ‘It’s OK to be angry and feel those things.'”

However, for those that are still hoping to hear more about what the pop singer’s gone through in her struggle to go from Disney Channel star to now, she shared that that book has not been written, yet.

“My story’s not done, so I want to be able to say by the time I’ve written a book, ‘OK, this is me grown up.'”
