Demi Lovato, 27, just coined a term that everyone needs to immediately add to their vocabularies: “CELLULIT.” That’s what the “Sober” singer labeled her beautiful bikini photo, which didn’t make the rounds through Photoshop or Facetune, on Sept. 5! Bold, sassy and proud, Demi looked back at the camera while showing off her derriere in a leopard print bikini. “This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!!” Demi captioned the post, which has attracted positive comments from stars like Bebe Rexha, Noah Cyrus, Ruby Rose, Jenna Dewan, and James Charles. The post even solicited a flirty remark from The Bachelorette’s Mike Johnson! The Disney alum then revealed why she decided to show the real her — cue “This Is Me” from Camp Rock.
“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,” Demi bravely announced in her caption. “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.” Demi even hopes to be a future mother, stating that her body will continue to “amaze” her when she “hopefully give[s] birth one day.”
