Demi Lovato Reveals Why She Cut Her Hair Short

Demi Lovato has opened up about her decision to cut off her hair, describing the change as 'liberating'.

The singer showed off her new look back in November last year, getting rid of her long locks and opting for a cropped pixie cut instead.

Speaking on The Drew Barrymore Show this week, Lovato revealed what inspired the decision to cut her hair short.


She said: "I cut my hair because I just wanted to free myself of all of the gender and sexuality norms that were placed on me as a Christian in the South.

"And when I cut my hair, I felt so liberated because I wasn't subscribing to an idea or a belief placed upon me to be something that I'm not."

Lovato recently took part in a new documentary where she laid bare some of the more shocking details about her life, including her battle with addiction.

In YouTube's Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil, the singer shared frank stories about her life, including the night she was rushed to hospital after accidentally overdosing.


In the documentary, Lovato said: "I've had so much to say over the past two years, wanting to set the record straight about what it was that happened.

"I've had a lot of lives. Like my cat, you know? I'm on my ninth life."

She went on to say the overdose was so severe that she suffered three strokes and a heart attack, and was left with some brain damage.


"I had three strokes. I had a heart attack," Demi said.

"My doctors said that I had five to 10 more minutes.

"I crossed a line that I had never crossed."

She also spoke about her relapse in 2018, telling the camera: "I picked up a bottle of red wine that night, and it wasn't even 30 minutes before I called someone that I knew had drugs on them.


"I'm surprised I didn't OD that night."

She went on: "I tried meth. I mixed it with molly, with coke, weed, alcohol, Oxycontin. And that alone should've killed me.

"It was only two weeks before I was introduced to heroin and crack cocaine.

"I started using recreationally, and obviously, you can't do that with heroin before you become addicted to it.
