Demi Lovato is doing some deep diving into her past. And in a recent interview with Alternative Press, the Cool for the Summer singer opened up about having some regrets over the 3 documentaries she released before turning the big 3-0. Lovato recently celebrated her 30th birthday with her new boo Jute$ and close friends, from Paris Hilton to Kristen Stewart, and the celebrations looked like an absolute blast! Despite the fun birthday bash, the artist revealed some regrets she had prior to her thirtieth trip around the sun.

When sitting down with AP to promote her new album, Holy Fvck, the singer told the magazine, "Honestly, I'm really sick of watching myself, and I think other people probably are too." The Dinsey Channel alum shared she was over putting her entire life on the screen, and for the people who don't feel the same, "they can watch my [her] music videos." In just ten years, the artist released three documentaries: 2012's Demi Lovato: Stay Strong, 2017's Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, and most recently, in 2021, the docu-series Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil, which all follow her challenges with substance abuse and mental health.

Lovato added, "I wish I would have waited until I had my s*** figured out more because now it's cemented." She told AP, "Sobriety is what works for me and nothing else." Demi explained the documentaries did help explain to audiences what was going on in her life - but also acknowledged that it might have been too much all at once. During her most recent documentary series, the singer classified herself as "California sober," which still involved some substance intake, but a few months later confirmed she had become fully sober and entered a rehabilitation center.

Reflecting on her experiences, Lovato explained she isn't totally closed off to sharing her life experiences with her audiences in the future but is not interested in going down the documentary route. "My story's not done," she continued, "so I want to be able to say by the time I've written a book, 'OK, this is me grown up.'" Regardless, we are rooting for our girl - and loving Holy Fvck!
