Demi Lovato has been vocal about her personal journey with self-acceptance and she's so proud of the progress she's made over the years, as she should be. In a new interview, the singer opened up about how she has faced some criticism from others since she has made some changes to the types of clothes she's decided to wear on stage lately.
"I'll have people who are like, 'Stop talking about eating disorders. Like, we get it. You struggled.' I'm sure they get tired of reading about it, because I get tired of talking about it, but this summer I started wearing sexier stuff, and I got some hate for that—like, 'You've changed.' It's like, what's wrong with being confident enough to wear this?" Demi explained.
She wants everyone to know that she is going to continue to speak about things that matter to her, while still being able to change and evolve as a person, especially when it comes to her personal style. She isn't going to hide her newfound confidence in the slightest.
"I've never felt as confident in my skin as I do today. A year ago, on tour, almost every inch of my body was covered by clothing, and it was because I was hiding behind so many layers. Once I started feeling better about myself, I felt better about showing more skin," Demi explained. "I have insecurities about my arms, so to wear a tank top on stage is extremely liberating for me, and uncomfortable sometimes. It's also a statement, like, 'Hey, watch out. You're no longer getting the insecure Demi that you've been getting for the past couple of years. I mean business now.'"
It's completely up to each individual to decide how he or she is going to express themselves and their inner confidence. For Demi, wearing something that maybe shows some more skin — like a tank top — is what makes her feel good and to her signifies the progress she's made in her life along with the self-love she now has for herself. And there is nothing wrong with that.
