Demi Lovato knows all too well the demons that ultimately led to Cory Monteith's untimely death. The former Disney darling, who completed a three-month stint in a treatment facility back in January 2011, openly discussed last year the dangers of falling into the trappings of Hollywood fame. "Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs," she said. "They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there .... Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says 'no'. That's why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me."
