Body Positivity: Demi Lovato Shows Off Stretch Marks, Cellulite, And Extra Fat

 

Demi Lovato is a curvy girl, and she loves it! The 25-year-old flaunted her gorgeous body in an unfiltered photo on Instagram.

Perfect In Every Way

The former Disney star, who admitted that she suffered from depression, eating disorder, and drug use in the past is now embracing her imperfections and empowering young women around the world to do the same. Lovato, in a series of photos, showed her excess fat, cellulite, and stretch marks for the world to see.

Haters should hold off any criticism because the singer does not care. As the title of one of her most popular song says, "Sorry Not Sorry."

Lovato went into rehab back in 2010 to seek medical help for her physical and emotional issues. Two years ago, she spoke about her struggles with addiction and eating disorders.

"I lived fast and I was going to die young," she told Time. "I didn't think I would make it to 21."

The young singer-songwriter recalled that she started binge-eating when she was nine years old. She started cutting her arms when she was 12. She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and bulimia.

Her mother, too, suffered from an eating disorder, she revealed.

After everything she has been through, Lovato is striving to become a positive role model and help make life a little easier for her young fans.

At her tour this year, she offered free therapy for attendees.

In addition, instead of concerning herself with destructive and unattainable beauty standards, Lovato has become a social activist who is an ally to the LGBTQ community and someone who is willing to march for a better country. Last month, she supported and performed at the "March For Our Lives," a protest against gun violence and mass shootings organized by the survivors of the Feb. 14 Parkland school shooting.

"[T]his year, I've decided I'm letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self-criticism," she wrote on Instagram from January. "Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing. Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes. Today, I'm feeling strong. You all can do it too. It IS possible."

Lovato's most recent album, Tell Me You Love Me, was released last year.
