Demi Lovato has opened up about her reason for posting a particular swimsuit picture to social media.
The 25-year-old singer has been posting lots of swimsuit pics to Instagram of late, but it is one photo in particular – one where she poses in a stripy one-piece – that is very personal to the star.
“So, I’m insecure about my legs in this picture but I’m posting it because I look so happy and this year I’ve decided I’m letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self criticism,” Demi captioned the swimsuit post. “Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing. Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work everyday towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes. Today I’m feeling strong. You all can do it too. It IS possible. Thank you God for this new chapter in my life.”
Demi sat down with Ellen Degeneres to talk self-love and that particular post, telling Ellen, “I actually was very hesitant about posting that because I didn’t love my legs in it. I decided to post it anyways because I thought, ‘You know what, it’s me, it’s who I am and I love my body so I’m just going to post it.’ I’ve taken away the power from the negative comments and the haters by not listening to them and if I do see it, I just feel sorry for them, because who leaves a negative comment on somebody’s profile on the internet? You have to be kind of sad to do that. I’ve taken away the power and it just feels great.”
