AceShowbiz - Nothing can stop Demi Lovato anymore, not even her cellulite. The Disney alum has been receiving a lot of praises ever since she shared on Instagram on Thursday, September 5 an unedited picture of herself rocking a bikini.
In the photo, which has since gone viral on social media and garnered more than 3 million likes, Demi looked back at the camera as she showed off her derriere in a leopard print bikini. Her cellulite was full on display in the image, but that no longer made the singer ashamed as she shared a message about body positivity in the caption of the post.
Dubbing her cellulite her "biggest fear," Demi admitted she used to edit her bikini photos to make her look good, but she eventually got "sooo tired" of that. "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 said.
Demi went on expressing how happy she is now that she doesn't have to stress about putting herself through a strenuous workout or depriving herself of certain foods. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer then encouraged her followers to do the same, "You should love you too!" before teasing her new music that might be talking about body positivity.
"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 concluded.
Many of her followers, as well as her celebrity friends, have jumped into the comment section to give her gushing messages. Among them was Vanessa Hudgens, Noah Cyrus and Sara Sampaio. Ashley Graham wrote, "Showing us YOU is so incredibly beautiful. Thank you Demi! Love you Mama!" Ashley Greene called her post "the bravest, dopest," adding, "I think this is something we all struggle with an we all need warriors telling each other we're perfect the way we are."
One fan gushed, "You are just awesome and an example to every women to enjoy and love their own body !! God bless you," while another chimed in, "You are beautiful inside and out. Thank you for posting this. Young women need to see this and not be ashamed or try to IMPRESS others. Keep on posting!"
