Talk about "Confident!" On Thursday, Demi Lovato took to Instagram to show off her cellulite in an unedited bikini pic. "This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s cellu-LIT!!" the pop star captioned the snap. "I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body...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. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day." While she also admitted to retouching previous bikini pics, she added, "I’m not stoked on my appearance, BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do." The 27-year-old even hinted that her new attitude may inspire some new music. "Now back to the studio," she wrote in the lengthy post. "I’m working on an anthem."

This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it’s CELLULIT!!!! 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. 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. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day. It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit. Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem.. ------------‍♀️ also. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too. -- #nationalcelulliteday #celluLIT ------
