    I can’t believe what that “team” did to her.. How the heck did they think that would help!? Seriously! That made me so mad! They literally can’t have even tried to understand the situation. They MADE an eating disorder. So happy she has a new team. Hope they treat you good Demi 💜

    The entertainment industry does this to all pop stars and actors/actresses. They aren’t viewed as people, they are a product, money makers to the ones that control them. Remember this is only a small amount of information that we are hearing, i can’t even imagine what they go through behind closed doors.

    There is one thing that i want to highlight that i feel is really REALLY important. 4:28 She broke up with her ex boyfriend after 6 years of relationship, because Demi realized she was emotionally dependent and she needed not to be in a relationship, like, she needed to be 'alone' in order to mature, experience more things in life, and to not being emotionally dependent of other person. To be independent. Demi also said he was/is the 'the love of her life', but still she took that amazing and VERY brave decision. And that's something we all need to learn and to practice, of course. "We are good by ourselves. We don't need a partner. We don't need substance. We're good." 👏👏👏❤

    Demi gave me the strength to actually go in and get help for my eating disorder as a teen.
    I LOVE that Ellen opened up too, talking about Portia's struggle (which I also resonated with around the same time). So much love to you both.

    Her former team controlling her eating enabled eating disorder behaviors. That’s so messed up. Ellen can definitely empathize as her wife is in recovery from an Eating Disorder. I’m glad Demi was able to share her story. I’m so glad she’s still with us!

    To all the past, present and future (but hopefully not!), to all of the celebs out there. . . may you be surrounded by a team that is invested in your entire well-being, and not just how much money you can make them!
    It made me think of Judy Garland, God rest her soul!

    Is this team even educated in eating disorders? It’s ridiculous. Imagine being 100% micro managed even after you’ve been to treatment.

    I like how Demi clarified that she co-wrote the song when Ellen gave her full credit. Very honest discussion. She took full responsibility & explained that she realized she has surrounded herself with the wrong kind of support which led her to make self harming decisions. I wish her well. Her voice is unreal. She deserves to soar.

    I don’t understand when she said at the end “I’m good without this food” I’m assuming she meant with this food disorder or something. Otherwise love her, so great someone as big as Demi is speaking out about this and her experiences with recovery! 💃🔥
