Demi, whose Holy Fvck album was released Friday, revealed she too could have died from the overdose that put her in the hospital just a few months before The Spins rapper passed away. 

‘I had a lot of survivor’s guilt after my overdose, because right after that Mac Miller died, and it just put everything into perspective for me of, “That could have been you, that almost was you, and how are you going to live your life now?”‘ she explained.

‘And it affected me a lot.’

The Billboard Women in Music award winner recounted her near-death experience in the documentary series Dancing with the Devil last year.

The song Dead Friends on her new disc is a tribute to Mac and other friends she’s lost to addiction. 

‘I’ve lost friends that were around my age, and those hurt so deeply because we’ve been in the trenches together.’

In promoting the new album on social media, the 29 artist wrote, ‘HOLY FVCK gave me the freedom to express myself in ways I didn’t know were possible and find joy I’d been missing while making music. It’s cathartic and grounded, yet exhilarating and a hell of a good time.’
