Demi Lovato is taking a break from using movies to chronicle their journey toward recovery.

In a recent interview with Alternative Press magazine for the promotion of her most recent album Holy Fvck, Demi Lovato discussed her feelings toward the sobriety-related documentaries she has released over the course of her career, some of which she has previously claimed were shot while she was not sober.

After the albums Unbroken (2012), Tell Me You Love Me (2017), and Dancing with the Devil… The Art of Starting Over (2021), respectively, the 30-year-old musician’s subsequent singles Stay Strong, Simply Complicated, and Dancing with the Devil were all released. Lovato told the outlet she won’t be making any more documentaries any time soon.

In the cover article, they admitted, “Honestly, I’m extremely sick of watching myself, and I think other people are probably too.” If not, they can view my music videos, I said.

The “29” singer-songwriter, who has often sought treatment for drug misuse, eating disorders, and mental health issues, has modified their sober strategy each time. Lovato’s attempt to be “California sober,” which began in March 2021 and ended in December of the same year with another stay in a treatment facility, was chronicled in the movie Dancing with the Devil.

Before explaining their present relationship with drugs, Lovato remarked, “I wish I would have waited till I got my s—- worked out more because now it’s cemented. “The only thing that works for me is sobriety.”

While Lovato may not be interested in producing another documentary at the moment, they would still like to continue telling their story in other ways, perhaps through an interview or autobiography: “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,”” they said.

After the collection of uplifting self-help affirmations Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year from 2013, a memoir-style book would be Lovato’s second publication.

In other parts of the Alternative Press interview, she discussed how her “California sober” lifestyle at the time—which led to the hallucinogenic components in the music’s production—had caused her to no longer relate to Dancing with the Devil… The Art of Starting Over.

The former Disney Channel actress claimed, “I’m happy of the last record that I did, but it just didn’t seem like me. “I wanted to release songs that I would like performing live to, and I can’t say that about my last record,” the artist said.

They went on to say that they weren’t focused since they were “so high the whole time using pot,” and that Holy Fvck was written with live performances at the forefront of their minds. I wanted to play music that felt true to who I am now and what I’m listening to. I’m in a new phase of my life, and I want my music to reflect that.
