“Any time that you suppress a part of yourself, it’s gonna overflow,” she said, later confessing: “I crossed a line that I had never crossed… I snapped.”

The footage is soundtracked by an as-yet-unreleased song, which the lyrics suggest shares the same title as the docuseries.
“I’m rebirthing, I’m starting over,” Demi declared.
“I’ve had a lot of lives, like my cat; I’m on my ninth life. I’m ready to get back to doing what I love, which is making music. I’m not living my life for other people, or their headlines, or their Twitter comments,” she went on.
The hard-hitting four-part series, which chronicles the events which led up to her medical emergency, will also feature appearances by her family and close friends, as well as Christina Aguilera and Sir Elton John, who admitted: “When you’re young and you’re famous, my god, it’s tough.”
