Demi Lovato is receiving a lot of praise and support after posting an unedited pic to her Instagram. Over 6 million people “liked” the Instagram post in a matter of hours. She’s donning a leopard print bikini with a backside shot — cellulite and all — looking fantastic. She notes that her body has been though a lot (think eating disorders, heavy alcohol and drug use, an unfortunate overdose in the last few years). Then Demi took ownership of the fact that she’s not completely happy with her figure but that she is appreciative of it!

But this post wasn’t just skin deep… She had a lot to say about her future. In the post she talks about hopefully bearing children one day, being back in TV and film, and getting back in the studio to record what she’s calling “an anthem.” I, for one, can’t wait to see her move forward with all her endeavors.

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 🔥🔥🔥
