Transcript for Demi Lovato to perform song she recorded days before overdose
We are going to move on to our "Gma" cover story. It's a candid interview from demi Lovato and she returns to the spotlight at the grammys to perform a song recorded just days before her overdose. That's right. In a very revealing new interview demi Lovato talks about that overdose, the toxic people in her life at that Tim and how she is getting ready for her first public performance since her overdose. What's wrong with being confident Reporter: This morning demi Lovato finding her confidence and opening up for the first time since her nearly deadly overdoze in July 2018 preparing to sing the national anthem at the super bowl and revealing a new song that she will perform at the grammys. I almost listened back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help. You think how did nobody listen to this song and think let's help this girl. Reporter: In the first look with Zane Lowe, she says her highly anticipated new song called "Anyone" which was written and recorded shortly before she was treated with narc an is a snapshot of her state of mind at the time. I was recording it in a state of mind where I felt like I was okay but clearly I wasn't and I even listened back to it and, gosh, I wish I could go back in time and help that version of myself. I will be rising -- It's teaching her surprising lessons every day. When I'm struggling or going through a rough time I look towards the future for hope and to change my perspective on things, especially when I go through something difficult, I always stop and think, okay, why is god putting me through this. Reporter: Clean and sober for mar than a year now she says her outlook has changed completely since her brush with death. My success is not measured by happiness, exactly. And so when I think about what makes me happy today, I think about my family, I think about my friends. Baby I'm sorry I'm not sorry Reporter: Part of her recovery, she says has been about learning who to keep close to her in her life. You still have to make a decision every time of like, is this somebody that I want around? If it's not conducive to your journey that you want to be on, there's no need for them to be in your life. Do you think you had an error in judgment. I think I still have that. You learn for your entire life red flags, things to look for. Unless you're 100 years old with a bunch of life experience you're never going to know right away who is good for you and who is not. Sometimes you get full. Reporter: Looking ahead she's looking forward to a new role in the coming years. Motherhood. I want to start a family. Yeah. That would be dope. Reporter: But also admitting she isn't quite sure what shape that family would take. I don't know if I see it with a man or a woman but I just know that at son-in-law point I would love to do that this decade. You can hear the full interview on new music daily with Zane Lowe that is starting today.
