Demi Lovato Breaks Silence After Overdose and Hospitalization: ‘I Will Keep Fighting’

Demi Lovato has broken her silence for the first time following her overdose on July 24.

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet,” she wrote on Sunday in a message shared on her Instagram account.

“I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well,” she added, before praising her fans for standing by her through this difficult time.

“To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time,” she remarked.

Lovato’s note came one day after sources told PEOPLE that the 25-year-old “Sorry, Not Sorry” singer has agreed to enter a drug treatment center following her release from the hospital, where she has been for the past 12 days.

“Demi is well enough to leave the hospital this weekend. She has agreed to rehab and will go straight to an in-patient facility,” a source explained. “She wants to be sober. She wants to get help. She understands that it will take a lot of work and commitment to stay healthy, but this is what she wants.”

In her note, Lovato also went on to “thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time.”

“Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you,” she explained.

“I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side,” she added.

“I will keep fighting,” she continued, adding a heart emoji.

Lovato was rushed to the hospital on the morning of July 24 following the incident at her Hollywood Hills home. Her publicist released a statement that evening confirming Lovato “is awake and with her family who want to express thanks to everyone for the love, prayers and support.”

“Her whole family and Wilmer are just there to support her through recovery,” a source told PEOPLE last week, describing the singer’s support system as she continued her recovery process.

“Wilmer has spent hours at the hospital with Demi every day,” a second source added. “He seems very concerned about her.”

A source previously told PEOPLE the 38-year-old actor, who dated the singer for six years before their split in June 2016, rushed to Lovato’s side on July 25. He was also seen visiting Lovato again on July 26, when a photo of him at the hospital emerged.

Lovato has long battled addiction, mental illness and disordered eating.

The Disney Channel alum entered treatment in 2010, where she received professional assistance for bipolar disorder, bulimia, self-harm and addiction. Lovato relapsed after she left the treatment center, then entered a sober living facility for a year.

But even after treatment, insiders say she still struggled with her private pain. “Demi was never really clean and sober from all of her demons,” a Lovato source previously told PEOPLE. “She has been fighting depression and anxiety for quite some time — and is still in such a dark place. She was sober for a while, but not completely sober for six years.”

In March, Lovato revealed she celebrated six years of sobriety, but three months later, in June, she released a new song, “Sober,” in which she suggested that she had relapsed.

GRACE’S GALS: Grace Wales Bonner is breaking into women’s wear, according to her label’s social media account.
The London-based men’s designer posted an image of a model wearing a white tailored shirt jacket with black trousers and wrote in the caption “Introducing Wales Bonner Women’s Wear.” She did not return a request for comment over the weekend.
For Matches, she has revamped certain pieces from her spring 2018 men’s line — such as her denim and velvet looks — with a softer and more feminine take, according to the retailer’s site.
Bonner presented her fall collection earlier this month during London Fashion Week Men’s. It focused on a story of a black sailor returning to land, and trying to make sense of his identity along the way. The collection was more fluid and relaxed compared to her previous efforts.
She graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2014 and that same year won the L’Oréal Professionnel Talent Award. The following year, Wales Bonner won Emerging Men’s Wear Designer at the British Fashion Awards and in 2016 scooped the LVMH Young Designer Prize.

Dunkirk Vet, 97, Breaks Down in Tears After Watching Movie: ‘I Never Thought I Would See That Again’

A 97-year-old vet who survived the battle of Dunkirk spoke through tears after watching the premiere of the new Christopher Nolan movie.

Ken Sturdy, a native of Wales who currently lives in Calgary, Canada, donned a suit jacket adorned with medals when he headed to Calgary’s Westhills Cinemas on Friday to watch the World War II drama that he lived through nearly 80 years ago.

“I never thought I would see that again,” Sturdy told Canada’s Global News. “It was just like I was there again.”

The film tells the story of the historic battle that took place between Nazi Germany and the Allied forces. The nine-day battle saw the evacuation of British and Allied forces from the beaches of the namesake French town as the Nazis continued their advance on the opposing forces. In the end, 338,226 men escaped, but thousands also perished.

RELATED VIDEO: Why Did Prince Harry Attend the ‘Dunkirk’ Premiere?

Sturdy was just 20 when he worked with the Royal Navy to help stranded soldiers surrounded by the advancing German army.

“I was in those little boats picking them out of the water,” he told Global News. “I had the privilege of seeing that film tonight but I’m saddened by it because of what happened on that beach.”

Thousands of soldiers died or were captured during the battle, and Sturdy said the film took him back to those harrowing days.

“Watching the movie, I could see my old friends again and a lot of them died in the war,” Sturdy said. “I went on convoys after that in the North Atlantic. I had lost so many of my buddies.”

“Don’t just go to the movie for entertainment,” he continued, his eyes filling with tears. “Think about it. And when you become adults, keep thinking.

“Tonight I cried because it’s never the end,” he said. “It won’t happen. We the human species are so intelligent and we do such astonishing things. We can fly to the moon but we still do stupid things.”

101-Year-Old Woman Breaks 100-Meter Record for Her Age Group — and Only Started Racing Last Year

The number that matters the most to 101-year-old Julia “Hurricane” Hawkins is not her age, but her race time.

Hawkins, a former schoolteacher hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, won the 100-meter dash in a blazing 40.12 seconds at the USA Track and Field Outdoors Masters Championships this weekend, according to the Washington Post.

Her time is a world record for women aged 100 and over, pending its verification in December. As of now, that’s six seconds faster than the current certified record.

Hawkins quipped of her victory, “I missed my nap for this.”

But that’s not all.

Earlier this month, Hawkins participated in the 30th annual National Senior Games in Birmingham, Alabama, and ran the 100-meter dash in 39.62 seconds. You’re reading that right — that’s a faster time than the one she earned this weekend. That means, pending the verification, she has two chances to hold on to the record.

“I came to run, and that’s what I did,” a proud Hawkins told the NSGA after her 39-second race.

Proving that it’s never too late to start anew, Hawkins only started her track and field career last year at age 100. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been an active person for a long time.

According to The Advocate in Baton RougeHawkins is a longtime bicyclist (she rides everyday) and was on a bike when first competed in the National Senior Games when she was 75. Hawkins says she gave up after the National Senior Games in 2001 when there was a lack of female competition. But, she was persuaded to compete in last year’s Louisiana State Games by her children, and that is what led to her record-breaking performances.

RELATED VIDEO: Watch This 90-Year-Old Grandfather Serenade His Wife for 70th Anniversary: ‘She’s the Only One’

Today, she practices the 100-meter in her neighborhood, she told WBRZ. When she’s not on her bike or running the dash, she likes to take care of the house, tend to her bonsai trees, and engage in her primary workout: running from the garden to answer the phone when it rings.

Hawkins likes to live simply, and she says her secret to a long life is as easy as eating healthy, exercising, and family.

Oh, and one more thing:

“I tell people the thing I recommend is to marry a good man,” Hawkins explained. “If you marry to a man for 70 years and have four wonderful children and then you have great grandchildren. You can’t ask much more than that.”

NEW YORK — Mistaking the 100-plus-person line outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday morning as one for museumgoers, a few out-of-towners found themselves out of luck, after a security guard explained the museum was closed to the public but open for a press preview.
More than 600 media types — an all-time high — turned out for the big reveal of The Costume Institute’s “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: The Art of the In-Between.” Patrick Li, Eugene Tong, Cecilia Dean, Simon Doonan and Thom Browne filed through the futuristic design, while photographers and camera crews huddled around curator in charge Andrew Bolton.

Michelle Obama Breaks Hearts With Final Vogue Cover As First Lady

It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.

To call Michelle Obama’s first lady farewell tour a roller coaster of emotions would be an understatement. There were the love letters in T Magazine, the relentless, passionate campaigning for Hillary Clinton and the rose gold chainmail Versace gown seen ‘round the world, to name a few.

Now, during a week when we could all use a bit of a pick-me-up, FLOTUS is back to kick us right in the feels all over again.

Looking ethereal in a white Carolina Herrera gown, she is, as usual, the epitome of elegance and grace. Aptly calling her America’s “Mother-in-Chief,” the story followed Obama in the months leading up to Election Day. 

Of course now, the story, cover and Obama’s words, which went to print before the election, hold a completely new meaning post-election. Consider the way she describes her role as first lady ― a position that Vogue calls “surprisingly malleable, shaped by the personality, style and interests (or lack thereof) of the person occupying it.”

“I could have spent eight years doing anything, and at some level, it would have been fine,” Obama said. “I could have focused on flowers. I could have focused on decor. I could have focused on entertainment. Because any first lady, rightfully, gets to define her role. There’s no legislative authority; you’re not elected. And that’s a wonderful gift of freedom.”

It is what she did do ― advocate for education, promote healthy lifestyles and become a darling of the fashion industry ― that in part will make saying goodbye so hard to do. We don’t know for sure what kind of first lady her successor will be. All we know is what Michelle has meant to so many people over the past eight years, perfectly summed up to Vogue by President Obama himself.

“Who you see is who she is,” the president said. “The brilliant, funny, generous woman who, for whatever reason, agreed to marry me. I think people gravitate to her because they see themselves in her—a dedicated mom, a good friend, and someone who’s not afraid to poke a little fun at herself from time to time.”

We know it’s better to smile because it happened than cry because it’s over, but we’re going to need a few days to recover from this one.

Why Your Prescription Takes So Damn Long To Fill: A Foul-Mouthed, Liberal Pharmacist Breaks The Curse Of Christmas And Strikes Back Against


…. I call your doctors office and am put on hold for 5 minutes, then informed that your prescription was phoned in to my competitor on the other side of town. Phoning the competitor, I am immediately put on hold for 5 minutes before speaking to a clerk, who puts me back on hold to wait for the pharmacist. Your prescription is then transferred to me, and now I have to get the 2 phone calls that have been put on hold while this was being done. Now I return to the counter to ask if we’ve ever filled prescriptions for you before.

The Met’s Costume Institute Breaks Attendance Record With ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’

FOR THE RECORD: The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute has turned up its own summer blockbuster. Over the weekend, “China: Through the Looking Glass” shattered the record-breaking attendance figures for the 2011 exhibition “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.” As of Sunday afternoon, the Andrew Bolton-curated China show had attracted 671,234 visitors, making it The Costume Institute’s most attended exhibition ever. With three weeks to go until its Labor Day closing, the China exhibition may still gain ground on the Met’s other Top 10 visited exhibitions. The McQueen one ranked eighth with 661,509 visitors.
Given “China: Through the Looking Glass’” cross-cultural appeal – designers from around the globe are represented – it is not surprising that museum-goers speaking a variety of languages can be heard in the show’s 16 different galleries. Creative input from artistic director Wong Kar Wai is artistic director and production designer Nathan Crowley no doubt helped drum up interest. The Met is also favorite stop for many of the city’s estimated 55 million annual visitors. For fiscal year 2015 that ended June 30, The Met welcomed 6.3 people, according to a museum spokeswoman.

Kendall Jenner Breaks Kim Kardashian’s Instagram Record

Kendall Jenner is officially more famous than Kim Kardashian. At least, on Instagram.

The 19-year-old “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star has broken the record for the most liked photo on Instagram, which was previously held by big sister Kim.

The winning photo shows Kendall lying on the ground in a white lace dress with her hair sprawled out, forming heart shapes around her head.

The pic, which was taken in May, now has over 2.4 million likes. It surpasses the iconic photo of Kimye exchanging a kiss in front of a massive flower wall at their wedding. (If you want exact numbers: Kendall’s pic is at 2,484,857 likes, and Kimye’s is at 2,473,754 — so close!)

Jenner shared her excitement about the news with a cheeky tweet:

Looks like Kendall is the one we all have to keep up with now.

Kendall Jenner is officially more famous than Kim Kardashian. At least, on Instagram.

The 19-year-old “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star has broken the record for the most liked photo on Instagram, which was previously held by big sister Kim.

The winning photo shows Kendall lying on the ground in a white lace dress with her hair sprawled out, forming heart shapes around her head.

The pic, which was taken in May, now has over 2.4 million likes. It surpasses the iconic photo of Kimye exchanging a kiss in front of a massive flower wall at their wedding. (If you want exact numbers: Kendall’s pic is at 2,484,857 likes, and Kimye’s is at 2,473,754 — so close!)

Jenner shared her excitement about the news with a cheeky tweet:

Looks like Kendall is the one we all have to keep up with now.

Reese Witherspoon Breaks Out The ‘Bend And Snap’ At Walmart Event

Elle Woods, is that you?

While hosting a Walmart shareholders meeting in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Friday, Reese Witherspoon taught one Walmart employee a little trick she picked up from her role in “Legally Blonde.” It’s called the Bend and Snap, and in case you didn’t know, it has a 98 percent success rate in getting a man’s attention and an 83 percent rate of return on a dinner invitation.

Apparently, it also helps Walmart employees look super cute while stocking shelves:

Yep, he’s a natural.

Muslim Women’s Hip-Hop Collective Confronts Stereotypes And Breaks Up The Boys’ Club

A new collective of hip-hop and spoken word artists are taking on stereotypes one rhyme at a time in the Bay Area.

Earlier this month, The Hijabi Chronicles, a collective of female artists of the Muslim faith, launched via their first event at La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley, California. It is said to be the first event of its kind in California, if not nationwide.

Alia Sharrief, the group’s founder, explained to AJ+ in a video Monday that the objective of the group is convey that Muslim women belong in hip-hop, even if the genre has traditionally been male-dominated as well as generally frowned upon in more conservative corners of the Muslim community.

“We’re knowledgeable, we have rhymes, we have soul and we have something to say,” Sharrief told AJ+.

Sharrief, who was born and raised in Sacramento and lives in the Bay Area, released her debut album, “Mental Cycles and Mood Swings,” in 2012. Her second album, “Back On My Deen,” is on the way and its first single, “Who Ready,” was released in February. The song’s music video is inspired by Malcolm X.

Sharrief and other artists associated with the collective make it a point to address current issues, particularly as they relate to matters of race and gender.

“I rhyme about helping people, protesting, speaking up for humanity, having dignity, and self respect to say the least,” Sharrief wrote last year in a feature on Muslimah Montage, an online platform for Muslim women.

In another video, released last fall, Sharrief and fellow artist Aminah Bell responded to rapper Iggy Azalea, who some have criticized for cultural appropriation, over the beat of Azalea’s “Black Widow.”
