Demi Lovato has released her new documentary, Simply Complicated, and it lives up to its name -- tracking the pop star's tumultuous past with straightforward accounts of the personal struggles that nearly destroyed her life and details the making of her latest album, Tell Me You Love Me

Simply Complicated was released Tuesday (Oct. 17) via YouTube and delves into Lovato's history with a mind of the present, as she narrates the piece through a series of interviews and brings viewers into her private life. Nick Jonas, her manager Phil McIntyre and Lovato's friends and family all make appearances as well.

I wasn’t ready to get sober. I was sneaking it on planes, sneaking it in bathrooms, sneaking it throughout the night — nobody knew,” she says in the film. “I went on like a bender of like two months where I was using daily.

I watched Simply Complicated, and I genuinely learned a lot from it. I wasn’t expecting to love it (Another celebrity documentary?  Come on…), but it’s truly not like any other celeb doc I’ve ever seen. It dove into very real issues, portrayed mental illness in a real-life light (Demi was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at a young age), and covered the dark reality of a strong woman who has overcome a lifetime’s worth of struggle. If you don’t consider yourself a Demi Lovato fan, I can guarantee you will by documentary’s end. Don’t believe me? Here’s a little taste of all I learned while watching. Source.
