Demi Lovato discusses her meltdown

Demi Lovato has opened up about her “meltdown”.

The 19-year-old singer/actress stopped by the Ellen Degeneres Show to chat about her new album, Unbroken, and also spoke about why she ended up in a treatment facility last year.

“[My life] was called a mess. I don’t know what to really call it but yeah, I’ve called it a breakdown, a meltdown,” Demi reveals.

“I went from being at the highlight of my career. Having a movie about to come out or just come out and being on this tour. Having so much success. So many things were going great in my life and then all of the sudden my personal life just went down at crazy speeds. I had a negative break down and it changed my life forever but I’m glad that it did because if I had never gone into the treatment. I don’t know if one, I’d even be sitting here today. Two, if I’d be alive today.”

Because the problems were in Demi’s personal life, people are jumping to the conclusion that it was Joe Jonas’ relationship with Ashley Greene that pushed Demi over the edge, but that isn’t the case.

“I wouldn’t credit my meltdown to a guy,” Demi recently told Elle. “There was so much other stuff in my life.”
