The 23 year old singer/actress is revealing all in a nude photo-shoot for the new Vanity Fair Magazine issue. The big twist is that she is doing it without the help of make up or retouching. Certainly a very intriguing concept in today’s big Photoshop world, where every little detail of a picture has to go through several retouches in order to make it absolutely perfect for the public.
The former Disney star is making a stand with these nude photos with the hopes of promoting a healthy self-image. The Cool For The Summer hit-maker chose to pose naked as promotion for her new music as she prepares to release the album Confident. She ultimately believes that the title reflects feeling “comfortable in your own skin“.
Demi Lovato released her debut album, Don’t Forget in 2008 and this new album will be the singer’s fifth music production. About the record she has stated, “I’ve never been so sure of myself as an artist when it comes down to confidence, but not only personal things, but exactly what I want my sound to be and what I know I’m capable of and this album will give me the opportunity to show people what I can really do.”
The photo-shoot is also very important for the singer who has struggle with body image issues. She had a very public battle with depression, an eating disorder and self-harm before going into rehab in November 2010.
With those dark days behind her, the singer is now proudly campaigning for a more positive way of life and hopes that this new photo-shoot will be empowering for all women, saying ‘’You can Overcome Body-Image Issues’.
For those eager to look at the star’s body, you can check out some of the nude photos on her Instagram page. The pics are already very popular in social media with some of them already having more than 600k likes -numbers that keep growing.
Overall, we can agree that the singer is looking stunning in these new photos, proving that there is nothing sexier than a woman being confident in her own skin. Hopefully it will inspire some other female celebrities to follow in Demi Lovato steps and take a chance at doing some photo-shoots displaying the beauty of the female body without having to go through retouches.
