Lovato celebrated 4 years of being sober back in March, so she’s stayed clean for quite a while. “I had to learn the hard way that I can’t do parties anymore,” said Lovato to Refinery29. “Some people can go out and not be triggered, but that’s not the case for me.”

Her happy place is on the sofa with elastic pants cuddling next to her yorkiepoo, Batman or out on dates with her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama, who she’s been with for over 6 years. She knows that this may sound boring, but feeling relaxed than getting all dressed up to go to a party or a club where people don’t care about her well-being is not what makes her happy anymore.
