Demi Lovato’s Unedited Cellulite Bikini Photo Gets Tons of Praise From Celebrities
Demi Lovato got lots of love from celebrities after posting an unedited bikini photo that shows off her cellulite.
After taking a break from social media, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer has slowly made her way back to Instagram — and on Thursday (September 5), she shared her most candid post yet in an effort to promote body positivity.
"This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited," she began her post. "And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! 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. 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," Lovato continued.
The 27-year-old then went on to explain how great it feels to be back in TV and film and not have to worry about depriving herself of certain foods in order to stay fit, adding that she was "miserable on some crazy diet sh-t."
She concluded, "Anyway, 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.. also. 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."
