Pop megastar (and fellow emo fan) Demi Lovato was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital earlier today following a heroin overdose, according to TMZ.
The star was found unconscious at her Hollywood Hills home where she was treated with Narcan, an emergency treatment for narcotic overdoses, before being transported for treatment. She is currently in stable condition, as reported by PEOPLE.
Lovato fully embraces her emo side having been featured on songs with Fall Out Boy ("Irresistible") and We The Kings ("We'll Be A Dream") throughout her career. The singer also did her best Paramore performance at Emo Nite LA last summer.
We wish Demi and her family the best in this difficult time.
