Madison also told about the support received from the singerwho speaks candidly about his struggle with addiction, where he suffered an overdose in 2018. “She obviously gives me a lot of great advice as a sister, but I think seeing her in action is more powerful.

Her honesty, courage and her being an open book are what motivate me”, said the young woman, who also described what she had learned from Demi.
“The best thing I learned from her is that anything you do, anything you say, there’s going to be someone who won’t like it. You can never please everyone, so you better be yourself and say what you have to say.”pointed out Madison.
