They marked six years of sobriety on March 15, celebrating on Instagram with a “Self Love” T-shirt and a thank you to the fans. The next night she went on stage for her “Tell Me you Love Me” tour and gave a warm speech, Billboard reported.

“Six years ago, I was drinking vodka out of a Sprite bottle at 9 in the morning, vomiting in the car,” she said to the audience. “And I thought, ‘This is not fun anymore. This is not fun any more. And I’m just like my father.” So I took a look at my life and I said: ‘Something needs to change, I have to sober’ — that’s what I did.”

My truth… #sober now
