It’s no secret that Demi Lovato is Confident about her curves these days — but she didn’t always have such a positive body image.
On Wednesday’s Ellen, the songstress revealed that Kim Kardashian West‘s voluptuous curves had an important influence on her body image when she was younger — at the time when she was struggling with an eating disorder.
In a candid interview, the 23-year-old admitted that before the reality star, all the celebrities she admired were super skinny.
Noting that now there are “tons of beautiful, curvy women out there,” Lovato explained that Kim and her curves bursted onto the scene at the time she needed it the most. She said:
“When the Kardashians came on the scene, that was the first time that I really associated curves with beauty, and it was just so new to me. I remember thinking, ‘Wow, that’s so cool!’ And even in a time when I was still struggling with food, I was able to look at Kim’s curves and be like, ‘I should really be proud of my curves.'”
The pop star also dished on her relationship with Wilmer Valderrama — and while she shut down rumors that the two are engaged, she didn’t seem opposed to the idea of sporting a ring on her finger!
