This coming Monday, Demi Lovato will have her new documentary, Simply Complicated released on to YouTube for free.
In the documentary the singer chronicles her life from child star to adult singer and performer, as well as her struggles with drugs and alcohol and how Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu have helped her in her path to sobriety.
Earlier this year, Lovato earned her blue belt in BJJ, and made it a point of pride on her social media. The same pride can be seen from her coach and confidant, Fox’s Jay Glazer.
“I’m so beyond excited because I just received my blue belt in #brazilianjiujitsu!!!! I fell in love with #BJJ over a year ago and have been training several times a week ever since.”
“I’m more proud of the work Demi puts in with nobody watching than I am what she does with the world watching… Congrats on achieving your blue belt today in #bjj, YOU put the grind in!”
On Elvis Duran’s nationally syndicated morning show, the Cool For The Summer artist proclaimed her love for MMA and jiu-jitsu, saying…
“I started training MMA, and a part of MMA is jiu-jitsu, so when I started learning I just fell in love with the sport … Being able to do the moves that you do and flow with people, it’s an art form and it’s really beautiful, and it takes my mind off of things that I stress about, [because] I’m constantly thinking: ‘What do I need to defend? What move can I make now?’ It’s like a game of chess.”
The documentary on Lovato drops on Monday October 17th on YouTube.
