The 27-year-old pop star gave her first major interview since nearly dying, calling herself a “fighter.”
“I see someone that has overcome a lot. Like, if I could change my middle name to ‘Resilience’ — which I can, so I don’t know why I just said that — I would,” Lovato said during a conversation at the Teen Vogue Summit over the weekend. “I just have been through a lot and I genuinely see a fighter. Like, I don’t see a championship winner in there, but I see a fighter.”
Although Lovato has been candid about her struggles with addiction, the former Disney star made it clear that she would prefer her fans to remember her for her musical contributions instead of her trials and tribulations.
“I just want people to remember that I’m a singer,” she shared. “A lot of the things that I have been through outshined my successes in the music industry. I just want people to remember that that’s what I want to give to the world, so please focus on that.”
Despite having overcome so much in her personal life, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer continues to battle scrutiny in the public eye. Just last month, a group of famous hackers posted photos of what allegedly appeared to be a naked Lovato on her Snapchat account.
Lovato didn’t publicly comment on the Snapchat hack but eventually returned to social media to show off her Marie Antoinette Halloween costume.
