Demi Lovato Backtracks After “Misconstrued” Criticism of Yogurt Shop
The Grammy nominee also gave insight into how her recovery continues to affect her daily life.
“This is a hard thing to live with on a daily basis,” she shared. “The thing about overcoming my addictions, my drug addictions, was because I don’t have to, I can walk away from that and never touch it again for the rest of my life. I don’t ever have to do that. But I have to eat three times a day. This is something that will be with me for the rest of my life. I left that yogurt store and didn’t get the yogurt that I wanted. And then I had a hard time the rest of the weekend, to be totally transparent.”
However, Demi admitted that she didn’t handle the situation well, saying, “I definitely jumped to conclusions and probably shouldn’t have gone about this the way that I have.” Yet, she’s still willing to have a discussion with the shop to “help get the messaging right.”
She apologized for getting the “messaging wrong” and “disappointing” some people, adding, “I walked into a situation that didn’t sit right with me. My intuition said speak up about this, so I did. And I feel good about that. What I don’t feel good about is some of the way it’s been interpreted and how the message has gotten misconstrued over all of it.”
