Remember when the thigh gap became a thing and bikini pics with proof of thigh gaps took over Instagram?? Ugh! Well, Demi Lovato seems to (thankfully) be over that body image madness and wants to spread the message. The “Confident” singer shared a photo of her thighs via Instagram, and we LOVE what she said about them.
“I don’t have a thigh gap and I’m still beautiful the way I am #recovery #selflove #EVERYbodyisbeautiful,” she captioned the photograph.
In 2010, the 24-year-old star was diagnosed with bipolar disorder after she left the Jonas Brothers’ tour to seek treatment for her mental health. Since then, Lovato has been super open and humble about her struggles with eating disorders, substance abuse, and mental illness, and has even become a mental health advocate.
“Every day you have the chance to turn it all around. Take care of your body and mind, and it will take care of you back,” Lovato captioned a photo featuring her world-famous smile on World Health Day. We’re obsessed with Lovato’s introspective messages to her fans. Keep going, Demi!!
