Lovato leaves Instagram followers with important message

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.

Aguilera goes natural for ‘Paper’

Christina Aguilera is looking a bit different these days, but just as beautiful as ever.

That’s because she debuted a fresh-faced look on the cover of Paper magazineCosmopolitan reports, going “virtually makeup-free” in an extreme closeup photo; that theme continues throughout the glossy, though other photos show off some “out-there eye makeup and more dramatic hairstyles.”

Being pulled toward drama and rawness, Cosmo says Aguilera told the magazine that she has reconciled her desire to be both a performer and her natural self.

“I’ve always been someone that obviously loves to experiment, loves theatrics, loves to create a storyline and play a character in a video or through stage,” she said. “I’m a performer, that’s who I am by nature. But I’m at the place, even musically, where it’s a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty.”

Though she is beautiful — no matter what they say, and with or without makeup —Aguilera wants to make one thing clear: her glamorous self isn’t going anywhere.

“I mean, I’m a girl that likes a beat face, let’s not get it twisted,” she said.

Us, too.

Lovato leaves makeup behind in video for ‘Vogue’

As part of Vogue‘s “American Woman” project to celebrate strong American women, singer Demi Lovato erased her makeup in powerful video that celebrates her inner fortitude and her natural beauty.

According to Today.com, the “Sorry Not Sorry” songstress slowly wipes off all of her stage-ready makeup, looking “defiant” while she “peels off her false lashes and rubs off her lipstick and eye shadow, as ironic audio from vintage makeup tutorials plays in the background.”

Revealing her fresh-faced self, Today.com says Lovato wanted to challenge the makeover myth — the idea that people need to alter their appearances to appear beautiful.

“I think society tells us we need makeovers, but why can’t we embrace the beauty that we naturally have?” she said in an interview with Vogue.

But make no mistake: Lovato likes getting dressed and made up, too, says Today.com, telling the fashion glossy that she enjoys both natural and glam looks. “I love makeup,” she said. “I love doing my hair; I have extensions, but there’s a time and a place for everything, and natural beauty needs to be celebrated.”

She concluded her video with a makeup-free and confident smile into the camera, seemingly saying that there’s nothing wrong with being confident — inside and out.

“If you don’t stop touching girls, I will come out there and fuck you up,” he said, followed by a warning that he’s not “playing.” Glamour says Drake also issued another warning, saying “If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls, I’m gonna come out there and fuck your ass up.”
