Demi Lovato Says DMX OD Scared Her, It Could Have Been Me



Demi Lovato says she feels ‘survivor’s guilt’ in wake of DMX overdose reports. "Anytime that I see somebody OD or even pass away that's in the public eye, I immediately think, 'That could have been you had you not been putting all this work in to the last couple years of your life,'" the 28-year-old "The Art of Starting Over" singer shared. "There's times where I've even talked about feeling survivor's guilt because you do ask yourself why am I still here? Why are others not? It's a challenging thing to get over." The Camp Rock Star confesses, "Every day I am here on this earth is a day I count my blessings".

Well I’m glad she made this about herself.

I look forward to seeing the photos of her partying this weekend.
Of course TMZ would ask her such a tacky question.
The ego is strong with this one.
I love this song!
Another classic with the same title!

my mind literally jumped to this lmao
I think people who make everything about themselves are so strange... I get the sentiment but she didn't even say anything about DMX lol.
My sister did the same about my granny's death. I find it hard to be around her because she makes every conversation about herself.

She said to my mum in a jovial way the day granny died, 'I can't believe granny died this morning feels so surreal, hey mum you don't have a reason to go around there anymore? You can come to mine and see the kids instead!!!'.
I kept reading the comments here (I’m always too lazy to go to the source lol) hoping maybe there was more and she actually had something to say about him or his family after her statement, but nah... just about her.
super self-involved people are exhausting
she must be exhausting to be around
Having watched the documentary it's clear a key issue that has caused and made her issues worse this past decade and beyond is that she does not have one single person who is looking out for her unconditionally. Her mum seems messed up, her sisters can't assume that big responsibility, her team is on her payroll at the end of the day, her management wants to make $, her boyfriends are v problematic and she has surrounded herself with a bunch of yes-men friends.
after watching the first 2 episodes of the documentary, i came to the same conclusion. Her own 'sober companion' abandoned her. I would have stayed when she BEGGED them not to leave her alone. It's pathetic and they are all accomplices.
I would have stayed when she BEGGED them not to leave her alone.

Yeah that thing was super odd to me when I saw it in the doc
unlike most people here (and I get why scooter is hated don't get me wrong) i get the feeling he does actually care about her, at least that came across in the doc...BUT. At the end of the day she is a client and he has shown repeatedly that business transactions come first so I'm not at all surprised he would be allowing this.
I could tell in the final part of the doc he's not happy about it and doesn't think it's right for her but it feels part genuine concern for her, part not wanting to make a loss on an investment.
gurl... i get it but still nagl.

does she have any friends in recovery beside her sobriety coach? from what i read here it feels like she is surrounded by enablers.
her best friend Sirah is sober
girl...sit down somewhere
ontd really hates this girl lmao
But, no, it's just our imagination... all of the other celebs are treated with this disdain. Uh huh.
tbf I always have since way back in her Disney days.

I am nothing if not consistent in my disdain lmao
She doesn't make it easy to like her.
i dislike plenty of people but i don't wait in the wings to pile on them
"Anytime that I see somebody OD or even pass away that's in the public eye, I immediately think, 'That could have been you had you not been putting all this work in to the last couple years of your life,'"

This was you though?
Right like what work did she put in??? She got incredibly lucky that it wasn’t her that one night. Like damn Demi, have some compassion here
No chill
She needed to do a pageant queen style pivot on that question and send support to DMX and his family, not make it about her own feelings. Because there's something almost blame-y about her answer as it stands and that's not good considering the severe condition he's currently in.

I watched the whole doc from start to finish last night and I worry for her. Someone who talks about how good she is at hiding things from her family and friends isn't someone who strikes me as suited for the moderation approach.
It's the part where she talks about how it could have been her if she had not been putting in "all the work" the past few years. Demi, you don't know this man. You don't know what his recovery has been like, you don't know if he has spent the past few years sober doing 'all the work" and then had a sudden relapse on Friday night. Where do you get off speaking judgements or assumptions to the press about him or anyone else who has OD'd when you you yourself have had endless judgements and assumptions made about you and your OD/recovery?

This question could have easily been answered without her going there.
this is what I came here to say, basically. recovery is an ongoing process and no one knows what another person has done or gone through except that person & the individuals involved in their recovery. her framing is gross and nagl, to say the least.
That what really got me, it comes off as judgmental and superior like if he had just done what I did. I don’t think that was her intention but she’s in that unique situation to understand the struggles of addiction and could have easily just wished him all the best and said she’s praying for his recovery.
ilu but i think you all are grasping at straws. this isn't some mark wahlberg, "if i had been on that plane, 9/11 wouldn't have happened" statement that she made. i don't think she's implying that dmx didn't do the work at all. she's speaking to her own experience and acknowledging that if she hadn't taken the steps she has since her overdose (and relapse shortly thereafter), she could've found herself in the same position. i think ontd is the only place i've seen this story being discussed where she's being raked over the coals over tmz.
Well, it's Demi and ONTD, when it comes to Demi and ONTD, ONTD gonna ONTD!

I get what you're saying but it's a really important aspect of one's recovery to not pass judgement or make assumptions about someone else's relapse. It's about community and I understand that a two second soundbyte doesn't convey her intent - and yes, your natural initial internal response is to be thankful it wasn't you and to think about what you are doing to keep yourself from relapsing - but what she said could have been avoided and re-worded to something as simple as wishing him and his loved ones the best and how this can happen to anyone.

His family is grieving and facing a horrific reality. At this point there has been nothing but rumor and gossip, no actual facts. Nobody but his doctors actually knows what happened or what's going to happen. Demi has been in that position and actually survived to see what the media, celebrities, frienemies, etc. said about her in her darkest hour, all the gossip, all the untruths and half-truths. She, more than anyone, would have a better grasp on what he and his family are going through and I expected better from her.
I can't remember where I heard this, but someone said "relapse is part of healing/recovery" so yeah. We all know that just because someone has experienced something doesn't guarantee they'll be able to speak about it adequately. Ngl, when I heard this news I did think of her, too, simply because I had literally just watched her docuseries the day before. HOWEVER, this was not the thing to say, because it's a little victim blaming whether she intends it that way or not.

Exactly.
tmz live does interviews with like, real celebs?? i know she's no ariana but that seems low even for demi
