Demi Lovato Posts Unedited Bikini Pic With Epic Message

×

Demi Lovato has had it with Instagram filters. On Thursday, September 5th, 2019, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer took to the social media platform to share a revealing photograph of her body. In the caption, she writes that:

“This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it […] so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got.”

Lovato goes on to say,

“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.”

Lovato seems to have really turned things around this year. In 2018, she suffered a terrifying drug overdose, which dominated headlines for weeks after the fact. Since her recovery, she seems to have a whole new lease on life. As she says in her Instagram post:

“here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem. […] Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too.”

She also tagged the post with the hashtag “national cellulite day,” a celebration of her own invention that doesn’t really exist – at least, not yet.

This isn’t the first time Lovato has opened up about her body issues. In a 2011 interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, Lovato revealed she was bullied over her weight when she was a child:

“I literally didn’t know why they were being so mean to me. And they would just say, ‘Well you’re fat.'”

Elsewhere in the interview, she confessed,

“I was compulsively overeating when I was eight-years old – so I guess for the past ten years, I’ve had a really unhealthy relationship with food.”

She also told Roberts:

“I was performing concerts on an empty stomach. I was losing my voice from purging.”

In her 2017 documentary, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, the singer said that,

“[Food is] still the biggest challenge in my life.”

She also revealed that she relapsed after her breakup with Wilmer Valderrama in 2016:

“When I was in a relationship with Wilmer I went three years without purging and when we broke up that’s one of the first things I did. […] The less I have to think about food, the easier it is to go about having a normal life and I don’t want to let anybody down so when I do have moments when I slip up, I feel very ashamed.”

In recent years, Lovato has become more outspoken on the topic of self-acceptance. In 2018, she posted an Instagram story in which she’s pinching the fat on her stomach, writing:

“Stretch marks and extra fat..and yet I still love myself”

In another Instagram story, she wrote:

“Cellulite and yet I still love myself”

When followers responded that they could barely see any flaws, she responded:

“The point is, I have cellulite just like the other 93% of women do. What you see on Instagram isn’t always what it seems to be. Let’s embrace our real selves.”

In case you were wondering, she’s right, by the way. Studies show that the vast majority of women of all body types develop cellulite at some point in their lives, to the extent where it should never be treated as a physical flaw, or something worth seeking treatment over. It’s simply normal.

In March 2019, she hit back at Inquisitr after an article ran with the headline:

“Demi Lovato Appears To Have A Fuller Figure After Working Up A Sweat In LA”

In an Instagram story responding to the headline, she wrote:

“I am more than my weight […] Unlike the past, I’m not triggered, I’m not upset that someone wrote a headline about my ‘fuller figure.’ I’m angry that people think it’s okay to write headlines about people’s body shapes. Especially a woman who has been so open about being in recovery from an eating disorder.”

She ended with a piece of advice that everyone should heed:

“Don’t listen to negative diet culture talk. You are more than a number on a scale.”
