Born on Aug. 20, 1992, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S., the singer-songwriter and actress has faced many highs and lows in her life and has been quite vocal about it. Here is a look at her journey so far.

In 2008, Lovato appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where she talked about being bullied in school. She said: “I never really understood why [I was being bullied] until looking back … I want to help with bullying. Because there are girls who can’t just up and home-school and focus on their career.”
How Celine Dion Changed Las Vegas—And Then the Music Industry As We Know It
Celine Dion is ascending. She is, as she should be, on a pedestal. A column of water rains down around her. She is shimmering, the crystals on her beaded silver gown lighting up, as if electrified by key changes. A knowing look is shared with the audience, 4,298 people with pulses approaching a critical level of danger as they hold their breath in anticipation. Celine Dion is about to belt the bridge to “My Heart Will Go On.” “You’re heeere…” she sings, effortlessly, angelically, perfectly, undulating through perhaps hundreds of vowel sounds in her Celine Dion vibrato.
On Sept. 23, 2008, Lovato released her debut album, “Don’t Forget.” The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart. Her second album, “Here We Go Again,” was released on July 21, 2009. The title track reached number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it her first single to reach the top 20.
Lovato starred in Disney Channel’s television show “Sonny with a Chance.” The series debuted in 2009 and the singer remained associated with the show for two seasons. The show was renewed for a third season in 2011 with a new title, “So Random!” without Lovato, but was canned after a dismal response.
In 2010, during a tour with Jonas Brothers, she got into an altercation with a dancer. The fight made headlines and the singer had to cut short the tour to seek help for “emotional and physical issues.”
Following the incident, she was checked into a medical center. According to ABC News, a statement released at the time said: “Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that…She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future.”

The lyrics read: “I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again. I want to be a role model but I’m only human. I’m sorry that I’m here again. I promise I’ll get help.”
Just a month later, on July 24, she was hospitalized for an apparent drug overdose. Later. her representative said: “Demi is awake and with her family, who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support. Some of the information being reported is incorrect and they respectfully ask for privacy and not speculation as her health and recovery is the most important thing right now.”
On Aug. 6, Lovato took to her Instagram feed and opened up about how she has been dealing with addiction. She admitted that she must "continue to overcome and have not done yet." She also wrote, "I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery...I will keep fighting."
Last December, shortly before Lovato celebrated six months sobriety following her overdose last July, Aguilera let Lovato know that the pair would be friends for life.
Commenting on a photo of Lovato looking happy and healthy following an intense martial arts session, Aguilera wrote that she had missed her pal “so very much.”
Aguilera added, “And we keep on tickin – till the end of time- I looooove youuuu.”
Opening up about the moment when they first met, Lovato previously told PEOPLE that she had been happily surprised to find out just how much her favorite ex-Mouseketeer was looking forward to their collaboration.
“I think the memory that I’ll always have of first meeting Christina is when I walked up to her, she screamed,” Lovato explained. “And I was like, ‘I’m the one that should be screaming. It’s you.‘ And she was like, ‘I’m so excited to meet you!’ Just, like, over the top in the most innocent, purest way possible.”
