"Thanks @BangBang! Album release day!!! #DEMI," she wrote, posting the pic on Twitter and linking off to her
"I have a song on my album called 'Warrior,' and it's a very, very meaningful song to me," she told
In the song, which is the last track on her album and might ordinarily seem like just another break-up/survivor dirge, the chorus goes, "Now I'm a warrior / Now I've got thicker skin / I'm a warrior / I'm stronger than I've ever been / And my armor, is made of steel, you can't get in / I'm a warrior / And you can never hurt me again."
But she also writes: "Out of the ashes / I'm burning like a fire / You can save your apologies, you're nothing but a liar / I've got shame, I've got scars / That I'll never show / I'm a survivor / In more ways than you know."
Lovato has previously opened up about the "dark period" that included depression, eating disorders and cutting, which ultimately landed her in rehab.
But the singer poked fun at herself on the show, clearly showing that she's moved past her trying times, when
"That doesn't matter," Lovato said, laughing, "because I've already been to rehab!"
Touché, Demi. Touché.
