In the wake of a difficult year, Demi Lovato shared that she's happy to be "alive."
In a Nov. 12 interview with Jenna Bush Hager on NBC News' TODAY with Hoda & Jenna, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer got candid about what her upcoming hosting gig at 46th E!'s People's Choice Awards on Nov. 15 means to her.
Demi has a long history at the PCAs. The 27-year-old was nominated for the first time in 2010 in the Favorite Breakout Music Artist category. In 2012, she performed her single "Give Your Heart a Break" at the awards show, the same year she took home the award for Favorite Pop Artist.
"I think my first time at the People's Choice Awards I was performing, it was one of the first times I performed at an awards show on a main stage," she recalled. "And I could see people in the audience that I really respected and admired. I was so nervous."
"[This year] has been such a roller coaster, honestly, for me, the beginning of the year started out, I was on a trajectory to have an eventful career and I was planning my come back, releasing an album," the former X Factor judge explained. "Honestly, what I can say is, thank god I didn't release the album when i wanted to because I had so much to experience. I think the most important thing I learned is how much I am okay with myself and loving myself."
