Demi Lovato has broken her social media silence her overdose in July.

The singer had been rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after emergency services were called to her home due to an opioid overdose.

It was only weeks after releasing her song ‘Sober’, in which she documented her battle with substance abuse, which has been on and off since she was a teenager, and revealed she had recently relapsed.

Today, in time for the US mid-terms, Lovato has returned to social media perhaps in the most positive and constructive way: to tell the youth (of voting age) of America to vote.

She wrote on Instagram:

I am so grateful to be gome in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard! Now go out and #VOTE!!!!

You heard the woman. If I was an American citizen, I’d sure be inspired to get myself down to the nearest ballot box and let it be known I fully endorse Donald Trump. Just joking! 😉

No but seriously, good on her for using her fame to encourage people on the fence to go and vote for what they believe in.

Two weeks after being taken to hospital, she took to Instagram once again to be honest about her situation.

She wrote:

I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time.

It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet.

Let’s hope her recovery continues as positively as it has.
