Demi Lovato's 'Dancing with the Devil' Video Retells the Night of Her Overdose

Demi Lovato has released the emotional music video for her song “Dancing with the Devil” and it retells what happened on the night of her overdose.

The 28-year-old singer included the following disclaimer in the video: “This video contains content depicting addiction, drug use, trauma, and sexual abuse which may be triggering for some.”

The video begins with Demi in the hospital with tubes going in and out of her neck to clean her blood, details that were discussed in her new YouTube docu-series.

The visual then cuts to Demi‘s night out before her overdose, then to her bedroom when her drug dealer sexually abused her and then left her there to die. We see as her assistant comes into the room and finds her unresponsive and then the paramedics arrive to help bring her back to life.

The rest of the video follows Demi‘s journey to recovery in the hospital and it ends with her revealing her “Survivor” tattoo on her neck.

TMZ‘s sources revealed that Demi went off script during the video shoot and surprised everyone when she “began lip-syncing the song and began to sob uncontrollably.” She reportedly told people on set that filming the video was “cathartic.”
