She spoke about it in her songs, she spoke about it in her documentary Simply Complicated, she spoke about it in interviews … Demi Lovato has long been complexed by her image and her body because of an eating disorder that haunted for years. A fight from which she emerged stronger than ever and ready to inspire her fans. The singer, who turns 28 this Thursday, August 20, 2020, has become in a few years an icon of the body positive movement that encourages anyone to accept and love themselves regardless of the complexes. This way of thinking celebrates marginalized beauties, those who don’t fit in the boxes. Regularly, Demi Lovato posts photos of her in all forms on social networks: in a swimsuit (cellulite included), without makeup …
In November 2019, during an event organized by the magazine Teen Vogue, Demi Lovato had confided “we hear the term body positivity (positivity in front of the body), all the time. To be honest, I do not always have positive thoughts about my body. I sometimes don’t like what I see. I used to look at myself in the mirror and, if it was a bad day, I would say “I love my body, I am wonderfully made “but I did not believe it”.
A fight to learn to love each other
At this festival, Demi Lovato went on to say “I didn’t have to lie to myself and tell myself that I had a perfect body. All I had to say to myself was” I’m fine. health “. With this thought, I express gratitude. I am thankful that I have my strength and my body. I am healthy and I accept my body as it is.” Thanks to many years of working on herself, Demi Lovato is now proud of her body. “What I see in my reflection is a person who has overcome a lot. I have been through a lot. I see a fighter. I do not see a champion, but someone who fought and who keep fighting no matter what gets in her way. I have a lot of self-confidence now “she confessed before concluding” that’s what I see in the mirror: a strong woman “.
