Demi Lovato is getting raw about her insecurities.
The singer recently shared a stunning bikini snap on Instagram, and while fans are used to seeing the glitzy side of her online, she has decided to get real about her fear: cellulite.
“This is my biggest fear,” Lovato captioned her post, before disclaiming that she has been guilty of doctoring her photos.
This time, though, she said she was so “tired of being ashamed” of her body and editing pictures that she decided to share an authentic photo where she wasn’t “trying to meet someone else’s standards.”
In an ongoing process to practice self-love, Lovato posted a raw photo of herself in a leopard bikini. The image captures mostly her side and back profiles, putting her curves and tattoos on display as she glanced sultrily over her right shoulder. Her leg cellulite is also visible in the photo.
Her post has garnered positive responses from her fans, who have applauded her bravery and for putting her insecurities aside.
Lovato herself has expressed being “blown away by the love and support” that was pouring in, and hopes her message will aspire people to “be the change [they] want to see.”

This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited - and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day. It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit. Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem.. 🙏🏼🙌🏼🤷🏻♀️ also. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too. 💗 #nationalcelulliteday #celluLIT 🔥🔥🔥
