Demi Lovato Shows Cellulite, Preaches Self-Love on Instagram
Demi Lovato's #SorryNotSorry she loves herself, cellulite and all.
On Thursday evening (April 5), the Tell Me You Love Me singer shared some self-love on Instagram, posting a number of photos and videos to her Stories that showed off her body and pointed out her "flaws."
"Stretch marks and extra fat and yet I still love myself," she captioned one snap of herself grabbing her stomach, via Entertainment Tonight.
In one Boomerang video, she showcased her backside, writing, "Cellulite and yet I still love myself," pointing out "No thigh gap for me and yet I still love myself" in another photo of her body.
The pop star also touched upon how social media apps can erase imperfections: "The boomerang smoothed out my legs. The point is, I have cellulite just like the other 93% of women do," she explained. "What you see on Instagram isn’t always what it seems to be. Let’s embrace our real selves. #iloveme."
This is hardly the first time the artist has spoken out about body image and mental health.
In the November 2016 issue of Glamour magazine, Lovato got candid about the importance of self-love, self-esteem and taking care of her body.
"Someone said to me recently, 'You wouldn’t put diesel in a Bentley.' When you treat your body like a Bentley, you value yourself and you start to look at your body differently. I work out every day or six days a week; that’s what I need to stay stable," she shared about her fitness and wellness regimen.
As for those little human imperfections? The singer added that if "there’s something about my body that I don’t like, I remind myself that it doesn’t define who I am."
"The more you tell yourself that you’re beautiful, the more you start to believe it," she told the magazine.
