In light of the tragic death of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman, the outspoken Demi Lovato called out her musical peers to stop glamorizing drugs. Amen girl! Hopefully Justin Bieber gets wind of this…..
Famous or not there has always been a serious drug problem in this world. Addiction is real and can happen to anyone. It’s just always more shocking when someone famous dies from it because you think they have everything in the world, but fame and fortune can’t compete with addiction.
Here is what Demi tweeted out:
“I wish more people would lose the stigma and treat addiction as the deadly and serious DISEASE that it is. Drugs are not something to glamorize in pop music or film to portray as harmless recreational fun. It’s not cute, “cool” or admire able. It’s very rare when people can actually predict their addiction and even then, you never know when too much is going to take their life or take a bad batch of whatever it is their using. It’s time people start really taking action on changing what we’re actually singing/rapping about these days because you never know if you could be glamorizing a certain drug to a first time user or alcoholic who could possibly end up dead because they end up suffering from the same deadly disease so many have already died from. This stuff is not something to mess with. Why risk it? Addiction IS a disease. Please spread the word so we can take the taboo out of discussing this illness and raising awareness to people of all ages. RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.. An INCREDIBLE artist who lost his life to this horrible disease.. May you rest peacefully and in complete serenity now that your pain is gone. God Bless…”
How inspiring! Hopefully celebrities will stop making partying cool and fun and realize addiction is real. Drugs are bad kids… very bad. If you need help CLICK HERE.
