Demi Lovato may not have as many hits songs and award wins as some of her pop peers, but there is one thing she is the best at. And that one thing is talking about drug problems and eating disorders based on her own experience.
Hence, when actor Philip Seymour Hoffman died from an apparent drug overdose on Sunday, it was only a matter of time before Demi came up with her fascinating insight on how ‘serious’ the drug issue has become.
The Hollywood’s resident expert on all things drugs took to Twitter to give her 20 million plus Lovatics another one of her overused anti-drug messages before mourning the Academy Award winner’s untimely demise.
"I wish more people would lose the stigma and treat addiction as the deadly and serious DISEASE that it is,” the Skyscraper songstress said. “Drugs are not something to glamorize in pop music or film to portray as harmless recreational fun. It's not cute, "cool" or admirable. It's very rare when people can actually predict their addiction and even then, you never know when too much is going to take their life or take a bad batch of whatever it is their using.
It's time people start really taking action on changing what we're actually singing/rapping about these days because you never know if you could be glamorizing a certain drug to a first time user or alcoholic who could possibly end up dead because they end up suffering from the same deadly disease so many have already died from. This stuff is not something to mess with. Why risk it? Addiction IS a disease. Please spread the word so we can take the taboo out of discussing this illness and raising awareness to people of all ages.
“RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.. An INCREDIBLE artist who lost his life to this horrible disease.. May you rest peacefully and in complete serenity now that your pain is gone. God Bless…"
For the record, Demetria has never even had a Grammy nomination. She has given countless interviews on drugs though. A word of advice, maybe it’s time to focus a bit on your career?
