Demi Lovato took to Instagram to announce her partnership with a pro-vaxxer campaign to provide truth and information about the COVID-19 vaccine to the public.
“I’m proud to join @phenomenal and @higherheights4 in launching their PRO-VAXXER campaign to help fight misinformation around the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine.
“All net proceeds from this sweatshirt will support grassroots mobilization and education efforts in partnership with Higher Heights to disseminate trusted information and ensure accessibility and equitability in vaccine distribution, particularly in communities of color.
“Check my link in story!”
A voice in the industry
At the onset of the pandemic in 2020, Lovato joined artists Ariana Grande, Rita Ora, Usher, and Becky G to support the World Health Organization’s Solidarity Response Fund, urging fans to support the fund by donating to their fundraiser.
“1. Call on G20 leaders to urgently fund the WHO’s COVID-19 response. 2. Ask corporations + individuals to donate to the WHO Solidarity Fund. 3. Wash your Hands + practice social distancing.”
Along with her new campaign to provide truthful information to the public regarding the coronavirus vaccine, Lovato has been busy working on her documentary Dancing With the Devil, which will be released on March 23, much to her fans’ anticipation.
The documentary will detail the Anyone singer’s struggles after relapsing back into drug and alcohol addiction six years after getting sober and her subsequent accidental, near-fatal overdose in 2018.
“I had five to ten minutes left to live”
Lovato has been open and honest about her struggles with addiction and reveals in the trailer for Dancing With the Devil that she “had 5 to ten minutes to live.”
She also said she suffered three strokes and a heart attack due to the after-effects of the overdose.
“I don’t drive a car because I have blind spots in my vision. For a long time, I had a really hard time reading. It was a big deal when I was able to read a book, which was like two months later because my vision was so blurry,” she explains in the trailer.
“I dealt with a lot of the repercussions and I feel like they are still there to remind me of what could happen if I ever get into a dark place again … I’m grateful for those reminders, but I’m so grateful that I was someone that didn’t have to do a lot of rehabbing.
“The rehabbing came on the emotional side…Everything had to happen in order for me to learn the lessons that I learned … 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.
“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.”
