Demi Lovato Reveals What Motivated Her Nude Photo Shoot

Demi on Her Nude Photo Shoot: "I Wanted to Make an Empowering Statement"

When Demi Lovato debuted her nude, unretouched Vanity Fair photos, she wanted to bring a body positive message to the forefront. After battling eating disorders and depression, the confident singer is embracing her body, and she wants women around the world to embrace theirs, too. In an interview with E! News, Demi spoke about what it meant to her to pose nude, her frustration with retouching, and her highly anticipated album. Keep scrolling to read the highlights of that chat, and then check out her kickass video for "Confident."

  • On why now was the time to pose nude: "I wanted to show people that with this album, I wanted to make a statement, and I want that statement to be empowering towards women. And I want to inspire other women. For somebody who's had body image issues since they were a child, I went from hating every inch of my body to showing every inch of my body to the entire world and without touching up anything. I wouldn't have done that six months ago, because I didn't have the confidence that I do today."
  • On being retouched in photographs: "A lot of times I get frustrated because people will, without my consent, Photoshop my body and it doesn't look like my own body. Like, no no no, my thighs are bigger than that, can you put them back to the way they were? I've literally done that before where I'm like, 'No, put my legs back on me. Those aren't my legs.'"
