Demi Lovato Speaks The Truth About Body Image

May 05, 2015 2 min read

Demi Lovato has always been one to champion a positive body image. Although it isn't the first time she's done so, Demi dropped some major truths about society's expectations in an interview with The Kit. Her answers to the interviewer's questions were often very 'real.' When asked about her long time struggle with eating disorders, Demi did not sugar coat her answer or pretend that it was easy. “I take it one day at a time,” she said, sharing that she eats from a meal plan and works with a trainer so she doesn’t brood over her weight. “And I exercise to feel good.” Demi also spoke about her Twitter and Instagram campaign, #NoMakeUpMonday. The campaign encourages women to post bare faced photos of themselves. “As women, we’ve grown up thinking that we have to wear makeup and that’s not true,” she said. “If girls can go one day out of the week without wearing makeup, I think that’s really empowering.” This hashtag reminds us that beauty comes from the inside and not from a store bought bottle. Demi doesn't just promote the hashtag, she's participated, posting multiple make up less pics. Demi also tackled the controversial subject of thigh gaps, referencing the photos she's posted that prove that she herself does not have one. “For people that naturally have [a thigh gap], that’s totally fine and they’re beautiful, but I don’t, and I just wanted to show people that you can look beautiful without having one." Exactly. Beauty has many definitions. She also explained that she understands why some celebrities might use apps to make themselves look thinner in pics:
It’s not something I wish people would do, but for the celebrities that do it, I don’t blame them. And I don’t blame people for getting plastic surgery either who are in the public eye. It’s difficult to be a celebrity and to have that many more people hating on your pictures—it’s really hard. It takes courage for somebody to stay true to themselves and not make themselves look thinner. I would like to see a future where people are able to accept themselves for who they are and what they have.
Demi Lovato is absolutely right. Staying true to who you are takes an incredible amount of courage. Confidence isn't easy and we have to stay mindful of how we treat ourselves. Demi is living proof that you can survive the struggle. Look at the best parts of yourself, love them. Screw what everyone else has to say! And I like this #NoMakeUpMonday (even though not wearing make up is a fairly common thing for me -- I still feel a little like I want to get on board). Will you post your pic? demi
