Just recently, Demi Lovato stripped for a nude photo shoot which she said used no retouching, clothes or makeup – and she felt that the experience was empowering for her.
She appears in the pages of “Vanity Fair” and says it’s a huge progression from her past of suffering from eating disorders. She revealed, “In the past I suffered from eating disorders and I basically went from hating every inch of my body to working on myself and figuring out ways to love myself and love the skin that I’m in. I learned that you can get to a place that you love the skin you’re in.”
She said that she chose to pose naked as she gears up for the release of her album “Confident.” She said, “I thought there was something incredible about the idea of no makeup whatsoever, no clothes and no retouching. I would never have thought I’d get to a place in my life where I’m comfortable doing that. It’s empowering and it shows other women you can get to a place where you can overcome the obstacles of body image issues, you can feel comfortable and confident in your skin.”
She added, “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. I want to show the side of me that’s real, that’s liberated, that’s free.”
