Beauty is pain!
Hot damn, she gets better looking with every picture!!
Though we've always thought this singer was flawless, Demi Lovato has very publicly dealt with body dysmorphia issues and eating disorders…
So when she posted a heartfelt and crushing message about how happy she was after seeing her bodacious body at the 2014 Video Music Awards — we couldn't be more thrilled for her!
"This picture makes me feel so many mixed emotions.. I remember the day I wore the dress in the very first picture. I remember asking for spanx to flatten my stomach because I use to feel so heavy and "fat". Now looking at this picture, you can clearly see my hip bones. It makes me sad because I wasted so many years ashamed of my body when I could've been living the happy and healthy life I live today. It TRULY just goes to show you that your perceptions can lie to you. OR they can make you learn to enjoy life. Fortunately looking at the picture of myself in the red dress yesterday, I not only feel so grateful for the love and support I've had from fans, friends and family, but… I also feel.. beautiful. I'm so excited to live my life the way I deserve to and to the complete fullest. Thank you guys once again.. I'm so thankful for my Lovatics. I love you… And never forget that staying strong is worth it."
We soooo appreciate that Demmerz is continually honest about her struggle!
She's always looked fabulous — we're just happy she's finally seeing her own beauty and embracing her killer body!
