Demi Lovato: 'Stay Strong' Doc Shows Life 'In My Shoes'

'I was most definitely nervous about opening up to the cameras,' Lovato admits of documentary airing Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

Demi Lovato will let fans into her life when her documentary "Demi Lovato: Stay Strong" premieres March 6 on MTV. Cameras follow Lovato as she tours, goes back to visit the Illinois rehab center where she was treated, and opens up in great detail about her life post-treatment.

While Lovatics got a preview of what's to come from [article id="1680267"]the trailer[/article] that dropped a few weeks back, the full picture of Demi's struggles and her life right now will be revealed when the "Stay Strong" airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Lovato talked to MTV News this week about why she signed on for the doc.

"I was most definitely nervous about opening up to the cameras," she said. "And I was very hesitant to say certain things, but once I was around them for a while, I felt more comfortable and really opened up towards them."

The special goes deep. [article id="1679643"]Demi talks candidly[/article] about her issues, from being diagnosed with bipolar disorder to struggling with both cutting and eating disorders. The singer/actress hopes the documentary can help anyone else dealing with similar kinds of pain.

"My goals for my fans? It's to really inspire people," she said. "That's all I hope to accomplish. If there is a young girl at home dealing with the same issues that I'm dealing with, I want to be able to reach out to her and tell her that it's going to be OK.

"You know, I speak about a lot of serious issues and I really hope to get awareness out there about the issues that I dealt with," she continued. "But at the end of the day, I just want people to see what it's like to be in my shoes. I kind of talked about the journey that I've been on and I just want people to take away a positive message. It gets better, you know?"

The special is named after a pair of [article id="1679615"]tattoos Demi has[/article] on her wrists that read "Stay Strong." The tats are a tribute to the fans that Lovato said sent her that very message while she was in treatment.
