Demi Lovato: “I Am Learning to Love and Accept Myself”

Demi Lovato looks gorgeous in a new photoshoot for Fabulous. Besides posing for pics, Demi also talked candidly about her personal struggles and the progress she’s making.

Demi has struggled with an eating disorder and has never felt fully comfortable taking photos. “I felt uncomfortable today,” Demi admitted. “Knowing I have bad angles and the photographer can take a bad shot makes me insecure. But I’m a lot better than I used to be. In my first shoot after having treatment, I went into meltdown and ran away from the studio. So I’ve made progress.”

There were many times Demi considered quitting show business, but now she is more confident and is ready to speak out about her issues. “I’m not saying I’m perfect, or fixed, but I am learning to love and accept myself. My outlook is more positive and I am happy,” she says.

And despite everything that’s happened the past few years, Demi shared that she has no regrets. “There were times I wish I’d been a normal teenager so I could make mistakes and not be scrutinised. But I don’t mourn the childhood I never had. I’d rather have been travelling the world and making albums than at high school.”
