Why Demi Lovato is the Queen of Confidence
Demi Lovato is proving that she is slaying the game yet again.
In a recent post on Instagram, the pop star shared a photo of her in lingerie before a photo shoot for Allure magazine.
The caption reads "Behind the scenes (and bathroom door) of my Allure cover shoot. Posting a #NoPhotoshop pic because I'm proud to show my body the way it naturally is.. (And there was great lighting...)"
This isn't the first time Lovato has shown off (and rocked!) her natural self. Demi has proven to her fans (and the world) that she is her fabulous self just the way she is and she makes sure that everyone knows it.
Because of that, here are 5 examples of why Demi Lovato is the queen of confidence and most importantly, why she should be your body embracing goals.
1. NMM and FFF
Demi has coined two new terms on Instagram, NMM and FFF which stand for No Makeup Monday and Fresh Face Friday where she posts makeup-free and fresh faces on Instagram on the said day of the week. She's encouraging her fans that they don't have to wear make up all the time and to love their face as it is.
And she looks AMAZING while doing it.
HOW DOES SHE DO THAT?!
2. Through Her Music
Demi has written a lot of music that is about embracing what you look like and not giving a single care in the world what other people think. Some examples are songs like Confident (which was also the name of one of her albums), Warrior, and Really Don't Care.
3. Her Eating Disorder Rebound
A lot of people remember when Demi entered rehab after admitting to have engaged in self-harm and bulimia. While many expected this to be her downward spiral, she bounced right back by putting out a new album and kick starting her newly found body confidence. Her confessional interview with ABC where she admitted the damage of her old ways and the want to start over received a lot of praise for her bravery.
4. Body Talk
It was only a few months ago, but the internet practically broke down when Demi shared photos from her Vanity Fair article. Taken in a hotel bathroom, there were three rules: no makeup, no clothes, no retouching.
These were just some of the risque photos that Demi shared with the world. But never the less, still remaining just as confident in herself showing off all of her amazing curves.
She also received some flack for her Cosmo cover that came out last fall. A lot of people were upset that she had little clothing on, but to that she left a note on Twitter and Instagram proudly proclaiming how proud she was of her body.
5. Her Fitness #Goals
Demi has not been shy to show herself post-workout completely sweaty and untouched on Instagram. However, they're usually followed with a super inspiring quote that will probably actually make you want to get off your butt and go to the gym to be as fierce looking as her. The best one was when she shared this one of her on an elliptical bike reminding everyone that working out should be about fitness, not thinness.
The caption reads "Don't train to be skinny, train to be a #badass #healthy #fitness #selflove."
This is just the start of some of the things Demi has accomplished by embracing who she is. She's an incredible role model who, through her social platforms have made her fans and others feel like they can truly love themselves. She's way more than just being cool for the summer.
