Demi Reveals UN-Edited Bikini Photo

There are few things I dislike more than internet trolls.  People will use anonymity as a shield to do whatever they want, including destroying another person’s self-confidence.  Demi Lovato has been the victim of trolling since she got into the business.

Well, Demi clapped back last night, posting an UN-edited bikini pic of herself.  She captioned the photo “this is my biggest fear” and the fact that she posted it shows she’s got some ba….uh, guts.

Check this out…

This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited – and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. 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. It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit. Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem.. 🙏🏼🙌🏼🤷🏻‍♀️ also. 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. 💗 #nationalcelulliteday #celluLIT 🔥🔥🔥

Demi posted the original and very doctored photos a littlel bit ago, but they’re still available on her IG timeline.  Check those out:

 

I’m REALLY happy Demi found the courage to face her fear.  I just hope the internet is kind to her.  Because it never has been and the negative posts seem to do more harm that the positive ones do good.

Do you girl!
