Demi Lovato was making head turns at the MTV VMA’s with a Jessica Rabbit inspired look. Her sexy red dress with a plunging neckline with matching red lipstick was a to die for look for Ms. Lovato. Demi says she felt beautiful, but there was a time in her life where she wasn’t so comfortable and confident in her skin.
Back in 2010, the singer checked in to rehab for an eating disorder that was sparked by an unhealthy perception of body image. She took to her instagram page to talk about it;
“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.”
Posting a collage of all her MTV VMA looks from the past to present, she described all her emotions as she took a trip down memory lane;
“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.”
She now has accepted and loves her curves, and gives credit to celebrities like Kim Kardashian for helping girls feel comfortable with their bodies;
“I really credit women like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian… [they] completely revolutionized what our generation’s view of perception of what beautiful is and I really think that they had a huge impact on that. You can think whatever you want about the Kardashians, but they really did help tons of women feel comfortable in their own skin and I like to carry that message on,”
