In just two short months, Demi Lovato will turn 25 years old. And just like most millennials, she’s facing a bit of a quarter-life crisis.
“I feel like I’m at a turning point in my life. I’m turning 25. If you asked me a year ago, I would have said within the next five years I would be married, starting a family. That all changed, which I touch on in my documentary. I don’t know what I want the next five years to look like. I’m still figuring that out. I love music, I want to make music and tour. I want to dive back into acting at some point”
The documentary she’s talking about is the new film “Simply Complicated” for which she allowed cameras to follow her around 24/7. The documentary will cover aspects of her life, including her continuing struggle with mental health (she suffers from bipolar disorder).
She previously said,
“I hope that this film will show people that there is nothing wrong with having a mental health condition. If you do have one, you are able to live well and thrive with a mental health condition, if you are able to speak up and be vocal about the things you are going through.”
Demi has always been vocal about her struggles with mental illness, but this is the first time we will see firsthand how she deals with it.
“There’s something about when you speak out and are vocal about your story, it’s very inviting to others who are dealing with the same thing.”
