Demi Lovato Posts Unedited Bikini Photo to Instagram and Celebrates Cellulite

She’s a g’damn inspiration.

  • Demi Lovato shared an unedited bikini pic to Instagram celebrating her cellulite.
  • Demi says she wants to be ‘authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards.’

If you’re looking to roll into the weekend on an inspiring note, Demi Lovato just shared a completely unedited bikini photo of herself and honestly, she looks incredible. Demi explained that she is “literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body,” saying that yes, her previous bikini photos from the same shoot were edited and that “I hate that I did that, but it’s the truth.”

“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,” she said. “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.”

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 🔥🔥🔥
