Demi Lovato is opening up about what her new look means to her.
The 28-year-old singer explained why she decided to shave her hair and dye it pink in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday (February 22).
“I feel so free. I feel more authentic to who I am,” Demi said. “I also feel like I used to hide behind my hair.”
She added, “I used to use my hair to hide behind. It would cover my body. So when I started doing all this work on myself, I thought, ‘What is something that I’ve been holding onto my whole life that I need to let go of?’ And it was that. I feel more myself now.”
Demi also reacted to the response for the trailer to her upcoming docuseries, Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil.
“The world has been so loving and accepting of me telling my story and there’s been so much love and support,” she told Ellen. “What’s great is we live in a time where nobody’s perfect, and we’re not gonna get role models by watching people not make mistakes. We’re going to meet and learn from our role models who have overcome their deepest darkest struggles.”
In the trailer, Demi opens up about near fatal overdose in 2018 and revealed that she experienced three strokes and a heart attack.
In a recent interview, Demi shared something she can no longer do since her overdose.
