Demi Lovato has no time for being hard on herself and her body — and a recent Instagram story proves exactly that.
According to Glamour, the “Confident” singer showed her confident side in a series of posts to her Instagram story which began with a Boomerang in which she “pinched some skin on her stomach and wrote, ‘Stretch marks and extra fat..and yet I still love myself.'”
Her Boomerang posts continued, says Glamour, posting a second, full-body shot where she “swiveled her hips” and wrote “Cellulite and yet I still love myself,” with an arrow drawn toward her exposed thighs. While Glamour points out that fans jumped to point out that no traces of cellulite were visible on the image, Lovato explained that the Boomerang smoothed out her legs, thus reducing the appearance of any cellulite present.
“The point is, I have cellulite just like the other 93% of women do,” she wrote. “What you see on Instagram isn’t always what it seems to be. Let’s embrace our real selves. #iloveme.”
Lovato concluded her posting spree with another full-body, smiling mirror shot, Glamour reports, writing “No thigh gap for me and yet I still love myself.”
And with her series of posts, she showed how we all have perceived “flaws,” yet it is more than possible to love ourselves in the way we should.
Because there’s nothing wrong with being confident.
