Demi Lovato Tackles Body Shaming With Unedited Bikini Photo

Demi Lovato has shared an empowering photograph of herself, in a swimsuit, without any touch-ups or airbrushing.

She writes, “This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited,”acknowledging her cellulite.“I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited - and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m their idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got.”

The "Confident" singer recently took a break from social media after a spell in rehab. Now, she’s turning over a new leaf.“I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day.”

The photo is blowing up on social media. Her manager Scoother Braun writes, “Demi Lovato is the sh*t. She is amazing. That’s the tweet. Bravo. Deal with it.” 

The Grammy-nominated artist has a bulging schedule of small-screen appearances, including an upcoming appearance on NBC's Will & Grace and a character in Netflix's comedy Eurovision. 

Lovato adds,“It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of real cake and was miserable on some crazy diet sh*t. Anyway, here’s me, raw, real! And I love me. And you should love you too!”
