Demi Lovato is a passionate advocate of female empowerment and body confidence, and she always makes a point to share her journey of self-love with her fans on social media.
In her latest snap, the ‘Cool For The Summer’ singer took a break from a magazine photo shoot to pose in black lingerie for a bathroom selfie, going completely Photoshop-free to illustrate how comfortable she felt in her own skin.
“Behind the scenes (and bathroom door) of my Allure cover shoot,” she wrote.
“Posting a #nophotoshop pic because I’m proud to show my body the way it naturally is… (And there was great lighting…)”
Of course, this isn’t the first time Demi has stripped down to show off her “real” self. The singer and former Disney Channel star took part in a spontaneous nude photo shoot for Vanity Fair last year which was also released without any retouching – a rare move for most stars in the public eye.
“What does it mean to be confident? It means letting go, being authentic, saying I don’t give a f*k and this is who I am,” she told Vanity Fair*.
“I want to show the side of me that’s real, that’s liberated, that’s free.”
While she's all about being confident in yourself today, the former X Factor judge also admits she wasn't always so sure of herself. In her interview with Allure, Demi said she felt pressured to fix a distinctive part of her appearance after getting her first big break on musical film Camp Rock.
"I signed with Disney Channel when I got Camp Rock, and I had a gap between my two front teeth," she said.
"They were like, 'Would you be willing to fix it?' I wish today that I hadn't, because my gap was really cute."
