Demi Lovato's lifestyle is changing.
The singer, who uses pronouns they/them, announced that they are no longer "California Sober." Instead, they are now legitimately sober.
On Dec. 2, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer posted a message on Instagram, saying, "I no longer support my 'California sober' ways. Sober sober is the only way to be."
"California sober" was a lifestyle that allowed for alcohol and marijuana use in moderation. Why Demi decided to change their ways isn't known.
For a while, Demi often praised the "California sober" lifestyle, and wasn't shy about their marijuana use. They even released a song called "California Sober."
The lifestyle is not without its detractors or people who just roll their eyes at the gray area of sobriety.
Back in July, "Vanderpump Rules" alum Lala Kent, who's been sober since 2018, called the stance "super offensive."
"You know, there are people out there who work their a** off to never take themselves out of reality and to never place themselves in an altered state," she said on the Behind The Velvet Rope podcast. "You know, they don't even, when they have a cold, take DayQuil or NyQuil. So to say that you're, like, 'California sober' or this type of sober is extremely offensive, I think."
Demi's battle with substance abuse is well documented. In 2018, they survived a near-death overdose and went to rehab.
In a March 2021, chat with CBS News, Demi said they "best identified" with "California sober."
"I really don't feel comfortable explaining the parameters of my recovery to people, because I don't want anyone to look at my parameters of safety and think that's what works for them, because it might not," they said. "I am cautious to say that, just like I feel the complete abstinent method isn't a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody, I don't think that this journey of moderation is a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody."
