Demi Lovato appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday to talk about her upcoming YouTube documentary Dancing with the Devil, which will be released on Sept. In an interview with DeGeneres, she said that she hoped to “set the record for her near-fatal overdose in 2018” with the documentary and stressed the importance of allowing role models to “make mistakes” ”

“I talk a lot [in the documentary] And the world loved me and accepted me to tell my story. There was so much love and support,” Lovato said, as Us Weekly reports, “What’s great is that we live in a time when nobody is perfect and we will not get role models if we watch people make no mistakes. We will meet and learn from our role models who have overcome their deepest, darkest struggles “

“At the time there were a lot of stories that didn’t know exactly what had happened,” added Lovato. “I just wanted to tell the world, ‘Hey, this happened, that’s how I got away with it, and hopefully you can also help, ‘because this trip was so wild, but I’ve learned a lot and I can’t wait to share it with the world “

In the trailer for Dancing with the Devil that was released last week, Lovato talks about the terrible severity of her overdose, “I’ve had three strokes, I’ve had a heart attack,” she says. “My doctors said I had five to one ten minutes time “

In a Television Critics Association panel on Wednesday, she explained the permanent physical effects that she is still studying, “I’ve had brain damage and I’m still dealing with the effects today. I don’t drive because I have blind spots in my sight “said Lovato” And I also had difficulty reading for a long time. It was a big deal when I was able to read from a book, which was about two months later because my vision was so blurry “
