In the first episode of The Demi Lovato Show, Lovato sat down with American actress Olivia Munn for a candid and unfiltered talk about depression and suicidal thoughts. Munn encouraged people with suicidal thoughts to hold on for another day.
Munn said, “For people who deal with depression, like you and me, and who can have suicidal thoughts, anytime you get to that place and it seems like things are too tough and you just can’t take it anymore, just ask yourself if you can hold on another day.”
She also added, “If you take your life, game over. It’s done. You don’t get to see what will happen in 10 years. The pain is really tough. I know you know. We’ve been there. But if I had ended my life when I wanted to, there is so much I would have missed.”
Each episode of The Demi Lovato Show is a 10-minute long with interviews in every episode. The show will feature a variety of guests to speak on topics such as mental health, feminism, body positivity, gender identity, sex, and aliens. The show premiered on Friday on the Roku Channel.
Speaking about the new short-form talk show, Lovato in a statement said, “Some conversations can be difficult, but I’ve never been one to shy away from speaking candidly about things. We wanted to create a space that normalizes living your own truth — where people can speak, engage, and more importantly, learn, together.”
She further added, “There’s something therapeutic about having raw discussions that people can relate to and with The Demi Lovato Show no topics are off-limits and opinions are welcome.”
