Demi Lovato, who was recently hospitalized for depression coupled with an eating disorder, has gone and done something super-brave: she tweeted a photo of herself rocking a really fucking ugly bikini. Girlfriend’s body looks AMAZING, but that bikini top? Man. What an awful choice. Before posting the bikini photo, Demi said:
“I’ve been working so hard to get healthy and fit. I can’t believe I’m about to [post] this but I’m so excited… Here’s my bikini time body!”
After images of Demi in her bikini went viral, she also stated via Twitter:
“I never thought I’d ever feel confident enough to ever to that. I’m excited how far I’ve come since being completely ashamed of my body … I want any girl/guy out there who struggles with body image or confidence to know that it IS possible to find peace with yourself. … It hasn’t been easy, but it starts with a commitment to yourself.. Your mind.. And your soul. And trust me, I’m still working at it!! Haha.”
Girl, you look beautiful, and I’m so glad you’re on your way to being healthy. However. Part of a complete, all-encompassing recovery is knowing how to pick a damn bathing suit.
