I am really proud of Miley: Demi Lovato

Los Angeles :Singer Demi Lovato says she is extremely proud of her friend singer Miley Cyrus for quitting drugs and going sober.

The 24-year-old songstress says the “Malibu” singer has set an example for other celebrities the way she has taken charge of her life and handled her mental health issues, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“I am really proud of Miley. I think that it helps people to know that there are people in the spotlight that have challenges, that are faced with very stressful lives.

“I think it helps to know that recovery is possible and it’s something that is so important to certain people like myself,” says Lovato.

The “Confident” singer recently celebrated the five-year anniversary of her own sobriety, following drug and alcohol issues.

Lovato has previously battled with eating problems and bipolar disorder too.
