Demi Lovato urges celebs to 'stop glamorizing drugs'
In wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death, Demi Lovato has urged fellow celebrities to stop glamorizing drugs.
The 'Skyscraper' singer, who had been struggling with marijuana and cocaine abuse in the past, has hit out against filmmakers, singers and other stars who glamorize drug use in their art, music or films, in a posted on Twitter, Contactmusic reported.
The former 'The X Factor' judge wrote, "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 admirable. This stuff is not something to mess with".
She also added a tribute to the 'Capotle' star who recently died from an apparent heroin overdose.
