Just when you think the Western world couldn’t become more depraved, Demi Lovato pushes the bar even lower by posing completely nude for Vanity Fair! She claims she’s now confident in her own skin and other women should be confident too. It seems we’ll be enjoying more of these as the year draws it curtain to an end. #Confident
Well…The pictorial was not any sort of pre-calculated media stint, but rather Demi Lovato was looking to making a statement about confidence, posing without any makeup or retouching in the buff.
The whole photo shoot came together with a sort of right-place-at-the-right-time scenario, so to speak. Vanity Fair photographer Patrick Ecclesine was in New York for a piece on Phil McIntyre, C.E.O. of music talent-management firm Philymack, who has launched careers of pop stars including Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato, who Ecclesine had shot once before. Watch what I’ve been talking about since below.
“I thought there was something incredible about the idea of no makeup whatsoever, no clothes and no retouching,” she said in a Vanity Fair video interview. “I would have never thought that I would have ever got to a place in my life where I would feel comfortable doing that. It’s empowering me and it shows other women that you can get to a place where you can overcome the obstacles of body image issues and you can feel comfortable and confident in your skin.”
Demi Lovato has publicly discussed her battles with eating disorders in the past, so for her to expose herself in this way holds significant personal importance… to her I guess because this can’t be my headache. Watch the video below. #Confident
