  • Demi Lovato hosted the E! People's Choice Awards over the weekend and addressed her split from Max Ehrich for the first time.
  • The couple got engaged in July before splitting two months later.
  • "I am so excited to be here tonight because honestly," Demi said during her opening monologue, "this year has been the longest three years of my life."

The E! People's Choice Awards took place on Sunday and host Demi Lovato kicked the ceremony off with a bang.

The singer opened the show with a hilarious monologue – and for the first time addressed her split with Max Ehrich.

The I Love Me hitmaker got engaged to the soap star back in July after a whirlwind romance but split two months later. Though Max has been open about his feelings since their split, Demi, however, has remained tight-lipped – until now.

"I am so excited to be here tonight because honestly, this year has been the longest three years of my life," Demi quipped during her opening monologue.

"Don't get me wrong, it started out amazing. I performed at the Grammys and sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl. But then, Covid hit, and everything shut down," she said.

"So I did what everyone else did, I went into lockdown mode, and got engaged," she joked.

"I got into painting, photography, meditation, tested the limits of post mates unlimited. Also, I didn't know this could happen, but reached the end of Instagram four times. I binged seven seasons of Pretty Little Liars, got unengaged, then went looking for aliens in the desert," she said.

"So basically the same as everyone else."
