Demi Lovato: Stop glamorizing drugs

demi-lovato-the-x-factor-season-3_4004527 Following the shocking news of Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s death from heroin overdose, Demi Lovato took to Twitter and hit out at those who glamorize drug use.

Demi, who struggled with drug abuse in the past, wrote: ”I wish more people would lose the stigma and treat addiction as the deadly and serious DISEASE that it is. Drugs are not something to glamorize in pop music or film to portray as harmless recreational fun. It’s not cute, ”cool” or admirable …

”It’s time people start really taking action on changing what we’re actually singing/rapping about these days because you never know if you could be glamorizing a certain drug to a first time user or alcoholic who could possibly end up dead because they end up suffering from the same deadly demi-lovato-y100-s-jingle-ball-2013_4005551disease so many have already died from. This stuff is not something to mess with.”

Former ‘The X Factor’ judge also added a tribute to the late actor in her post.

”RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.. An INCREDIBLE artist who lost his life to this horrible disease.. May you rest peacefully and in complete serenity now that your pain is gone. God Bless,” Demi added.

    Great speech, Demi! I am happy she is clear now and that such great things come into her mind nowadays Drugs and alcohol are definitely something not to be glamorized in the public and not to song about. It is the disease form which many young people suffer and finally dies. Drugs and alcohol do not help with problem solving, but break friendships, families and people’s lives.
