The “beautiful” Demi Lovato is getting raw and real with her she really looks.
The 27-year-old “Sorry Not Sorry” crooner got candid in her Instagram post on Thursday, sharing an unedited bikini photo and explaining that she is done being ashamed of her body as she’s been secretly bodyshaming herself.
“This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!!” she began. “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,” she continued.
Lovato who is now being open about her struggles with an eating disorder and body image — added she’s thrilled to be acting again and not stressing about putting herself through a strenuous workout or depriving herself of certain foods in order to look sleek in the eyes and taste of others.
The edited photos Lovato referenced in her post were from back in May from her trip to Bora Bora when she wore the cheetah-print PilyQ suit.

“Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me,” she wrote. “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.”
She also took to her Instagram Story, writing, “Literally shaking still…that was so hard for me to post. But wow… so blown away by the love and support.”
