Demi Lovato Says She Was A 'C*nt' Before Sobriety & Calls Out Feminists Who 'Don't Do The Work' In Refinery29 Spread!
Demi Lovato doesn't have a filter.
So, it's no surprise the pop princess sat down with Refinery29 to discuss her past struggle with drugs, alcohol, addiction, and mental illness.
The brunette beauty opened up about how substance abuse affected her attitude, saying:
"Prior to getting sober, I was one of those people who was like, I don't give a f*ck, whatever. And I used that as an excuse to do whatever I wanted. I was a nightmare to work with."
The 23-year-old even went on to use some pretty harsh words to describe her old behavior, admitting she was:
Wow. This is powerful.
"I too, waited anxiously for a prescription to be filled for the opiate I was secretly addicted to. I too, took too many at once. I too, sought to kill emotional and physical pain with pain killers. Kill it. Make it stop.
Too many of our fellow humans, famous, infamous, and not famous at all, have sought the same relief. The symbolism of James Taylor's Fire and Rain,an anthem of addiction, seems more poignant as now it is a purple rain, another loss to drug addiction."
The Scream Queens star — who has been in recovery from her addiction for 17 years — continued:

This makes her already tragic story even sadder.
Police have stated they believe her untimely death was caused by her addiction to prescription medicines, and while we've heard what her friends and other WWE alum had to say about her passing, her manager just broke our hearts with his latest news.
That's because it was reported on Monday that Anthony Anzaldo had booked Chyna on an episode of Intervention just days before her death!
Apparently, Anthony and the docuseries had already set their plan in motion to get Chyna some help before she died, saying:
Nike Terminated Their Contract With Johnny Manziel WAY Before His Recent Scandals Broke — Find Out Why!
This all must have been a long time coming…
Johnny Manziel is currently making headlines for refusing to enter rehab, but it sounds like his downfall has been in the works for a while.
Nike spokesman Brian Strong confirmed they fired the athlete way back on March 11 of last year, almost immediately after he finished rehab the first time.
As you may recall, Johnny's manager Drew Rosenhaus also dropped the former Cleveland Browns QB on Tuesday, and now we understand why — he wasn't making any money!
All of this combined with his pending domestic abuse case must be taking its toll on Johnny Football…
Get well soon, Johnny.
