The 28-year-old New Mexico singer recently appeared as a guest on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where she opened up on why she cut off her trademark long hair for a shorter one.
An excited Ellen warmly welcomed her and revealed that she was happy to have her on the show again. The show host then complimented Lovato on her haircut and remarked that she loved that the singer was always trying new things.
Lovato then revealed that she changed her hairstyle back in November. Lovato's new haircut went beyond a fashion statement; for her, it is more of being authentic to herself.
The 28-year-old told the show host that she felt freer and more authentic in her pink dye hairdo. The "Confident" singer revealed that she used her long hair to cover her body when battling an eating disorder.
The singer said she still suffers some repercussions from the incident, which she said serves as a reminder.
Lovato's decision to let go of her long hair came after she decided to make some changes in her life. She revealed that when she started working on herself, she looked at what she needed to let off, and her hair was part of it.
The "I Love Me" singer's new hairdo has been a hit amongst her fans since she debuted it on her Instagram. Lovato reportedly credited hairstylist and colorist Amber Maynard Bolt for creating the charming bubblegum color.
Lovato's new four-part docuseries will be out on March 23 and will detail the singer's struggles, such as the near-fatal 2018 overdose, which reportedly caused three strokes, a heart attack, and brain damage.
Lovato said that the incident left her with blurry vision, which made her unable to read or even drive. The singer said she still suffers some repercussions from the incident, which she said serves as a reminder.
As part of her cleansing, Lovato is ready to date again, five months after her break up with actor Max Ehrich who she was engaged to. Sources close to the singer revealed that she spends more time recording following the breakup but is also ready to give love a chance again.
