Damn you, cellulite! But on second thought…oh hi, sexy. That’s exactly how we’re feeling after seeing Demi Lovato embrace her natural beauty. The singer posted a series of Insta-stories last week that basically showed her doing what we all do: compare ourselves to other women. But the amazing thing about her comparisons is that she didn’t body shame herself, she loved herself exactly for those differences.
“I was on Instagram and I started comparing myself to these Instagram models and I just thought to myself, someone needs to show my fans and anybody that’s looking at my account that what you see isn’t always what’s real,” Lovato told E! News. “And so, I decided to embrace my flaws and — I don’t even like to call them flaws, it’s just a part of who I am — and show the world that I’m imperfect, but that’s what makes me beautiful.”
So inspiring! This is just the kind of fitspo we need in our lives. In one picture, Demi shows she doesn’t have super thin legs that is typically praised by society — especially on social media. “No thigh gap for me and yet I still love myself,” she wrote.
“What I would say to somebody who’s struggling right now, is try to find the gratitude,” Lovato told E! News. “It’s so important that you try to find gratitude in your life and focus on the positive things and when you’re able to do that, or you’re able to help others, you’re able to get outside of yourself and you’re able to look at your life from a different perspective. Sometimes it’s really challenging and it’s really difficult, but it’s something that helps me every day, and so far it’s worked.”
Demi also showed off her cute belly fat and her cellulite, which makes us want to show off ours too! Why can’t everyone be like Demi on social media?
