Demi Lovato is still struggling with her vision and hearing after a 2018 overdose that left her unable to drive the car she shared on Andy Cohen’s show
Demi Lovato was a guest on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show Radio Andy this week.
In the interview, the 30-year-old musician — who performed in Philadelphia this month — discussed his near-fatal 2018 overdose and how he’s still suffering from the side effects.
The Texas-born superstar revealed that the overdose left him with blind spots in his vision and hearing.
‘I’m still visually impaired and hearing impaired,’ he explained to Cohen, 55.
Due to her vision impairment, Lovato is no longer able to drive, but she chooses to look at the experience in a positive light.

Long-term effects: The Texas-born superstar revealed that the overdose left him with vision and hearing loss.
‘Well, I won’t change my ways because I have no regrets,’ the actress revealed.
‘The closest thing I can get to regret is when I overdosed and I wish someone had told me, one, I’m beautiful, because I didn’t believe it.
‘And two, I wish someone would have told me that if you just sit with the pain, it goes away,’ Demi said.
The singer, born Demetria Devon Lovato, adds that the long-term effects of her experiences help keep her on the path to peace.
‘It’s a daily, constant reminder. Any time I look at something – like, looking at your face I have a blind spot,’ she told Andy.
‘And so it’s a constant reminder to stay on the right path, because I never want that to happen again,’ he admitted.
Demi, who has been dating co-star Juts for the past year, spoke about how her mental state has helped her see the positive side of the coin.
‘Luckily, the state of mind that I’m in now – you know, being calm, having a clear head – I just think in a more positive frame of mind and I’m not focusing on shame at all because I know I have where I was at the time and I Much sympathy for the choices I’ve made.’
He added, ‘There’s no shame because it was a life lesson I had to learn.’
