Demi Lovato makes major waves with her latest Instagram post, which features a totally unedited shot of her in a bikini along with a long caption about cellulite and learn to embrace her body as it is. For those who do not know, the singer-writer has always been open to fighting with the body image, so it is encouraging to see that she finally feels more comfortable in her skin.
Earlier this summer, Lovato shared similar photos from her vacation in Bora Bora, though she now admits when she edited them – and that she regrets it. "This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it's CELLULITE !!!!" she writes. "I'm just literally sooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini photos were edited – and I hate that I did but that's the truth) so others think I HAVE their idea of what is beautiful, but It's just not me. This is what I got. "Say it again to them in the back, Demi.
The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer goes on to say that she is starting a new and more authentic chapter in her life, one in which she plans to be true to herself instead of trying to meet the standards of others. "Here I am, without shame, worried and proud to own a body that has struggled so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day," she writes. She adds how good it feels to be back at work and not stress over strenuous workouts before 14-hour days or depriving herself of food she loves, like cake.
And Lovato revealed some exciting career news: She is back in the studio doing music again. "I love myself. And you should love yourself too! Now back to the studio … I'm working on an anthem … 🙏🏼🙌🏼🤷🏻♀️," she drops relaxed.
Before Lovato adds her caption adds a disclaimer so that fans understand that body positivity and self-love are ongoing processes, and like everyone else she is still working with them. "Just so everyone is clear .. I'm not impressed by my appearance BUT I appreciate it and sometimes it's the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today as well. 💗 #nationalcelulliteday #celluLIT 🔥🔥🔥."
