On Thursday, 27-year-old Demi Lovato posted a picture on Instagram in which she poses in a leopard bikini. The frame was taken during her summer vacation on Bora Bora. In the caption to the photo, the star admitted that she decided to abandon photoshop. Lovato said that “unedited photography is her greatest fear.” According to her, it took her a long time before she could post this frame without retouching.
Guess what it is? Cellulite! I’m tired of being ashamed of my body while editing pictures,
– admitted the celebrity.
Demi stated that this is “a new chapter in her life about being real, whoever is, and not in accordance with someone else’s standards.” Lovato said that fear prompted her to retouch previous photographs in a bikini, but then she realized that she was tired of trying to meet unrealistic standards of beauty.
Here I am, not ashamed, not afraid and proud that I have a body that has survived so much and will continue to surprise me,
– said Lovato.
A star’s shot scored 5.7 million likes and 200 thousand comments in less than 24 hours. The singer also spoke about diets, torment and anxiety, which, she hopes, were left behind.
Here she is – the real me. And I love myself. And you must love yourself
