The Super Bowl announcement comes shortly after Lovato's first interview since an apparent overdose in 2018. She sat down with Teen Vogue in November 2019, telling them she has overcome a lot.

"I've been through a lot and I genuinely see a fighter. I don't see a championship winner in there, but I see a fighter and someone who is going to continue to fight no mater [what] challenges are thrown their way," Lovato told Teen Vogue
