Demi Lovato goes deep in her first interview since her one-year drug overdose hospitalization in July 2018.

The pop-icon was at the Teen Vogue Summit in LA over the weekend to tell her side of the story, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Demi was “a little nervous” since it was her “first public thing back” since her hospitalization. However, she did shed positive take backs from her near-death experience.

“I genuinely see a fighter. I don’t see a championship winner in there,” said Lovato. “But I see a fighter and I see someone that’s going to continue to fight no matter [what] challenges are thrown their way.”

These challenges she’s facing are extremely difficult, especially when everyone can be a powerful online critic.

“What a lot of people don’t realize is that I’m actually an extremely sensitive person,” Lovato said. “I am human, so be easy on me…When you say stuff, it affects me. I’m human. I try not to look, but I see it.”

However, Demi is currently scheming together her comeback!

“I have new music coming,” she told a roaring crowd, before dropping, “I didn’t say when.” Then following it up with, “it’s important to remember that I am so cautious this time around of jumping back into things. I’ve really decided to take my time with things, so when the time is right to release new music, I will put it out there.… I am dying to release new music.”
