Meghan Trainor: Demi Lovato's openness has helped me

July 26, 2018 - 6:38 pm

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Meghan Trainor says Demi Lovato's openness about her battles and troubles helped her cope with her own struggles.

Lovato's representative said Tuesday that the singer was recovering after she was reportedly hospitalized for an overdose.

Trainor says in an interview Thursday that Lovato "actually helped me get through my stuff because I was watching her and was like, 'I know I'm not alone.'"

While Lovato has been seen as a role model for speaking openly about her issues with drugs, alcohol, depression and more, music fans have also looked up to 24-year-old Trainor, who has been an advocate for body positivity and has denounced bullying.

Trainor says that if she had known about Lovato's condition sooner, she would have said something.
