The 19-year-old singer stopped by TODAY to chat about her MTV documentary, Stay Strong, and opened up about why she decided to document her journey through rehab.
“I decided to tell my story because there are a lot of young teens, boys and girls, going through the same things I went through. So if I’m able to use my voice, to do good in the world, I want to do that.”
The documentary, airing March 6 at 10 PM on MTV, follows Demi at home tackling her food issues during her first Thanksgiving out of rehab, visiting the treatment center that helped her to offer her words of encouragement to others, and more behind-the-scenes insight on tour.
Through all her struggles, Demi believes her fans’ support is what got her through it all — and why she’s still alive today. “[Their support] means everything. Having that support, I don’t have a word for it … My fans are incredible,” she said.
Demi is ready for her comeback and hitting the road for a North American tour. Although she’s ready to get back on stage again, Demi is still nervous. “I’m excited and fearful. I’m always nervous before I go on the road and being in front of all those people,” she revealed.
