Demi Lovato Praises the Kardashians for Promoting Healthy Body Image

Demi has praised several stars for promoting a healthy body image. She believes those in the spotlight with fuller figures who embrace their curves are doing a great job at showing how confident and gorgeous they are, without having to slim down. She explained:

“J Lo (Jennifer Lopez), Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, Beyonce – who I don’t really consider human, she’s more like a goddess. I really think they had a huge impact on that (my confidence). That’s why you can think whatever you want about the Kardashians but they really did help tons of women feel comfortable within their own skin.”

The former ‘Disney’ star has struggled with some personal issues in recent years, but critics were so impressed with her stunning red carpet appearance at this year’s MTV VMAs. She says the whole experience was very different to her 2008 appearance at the same event because she was miserable back then:

“There’s the element of insecurity when I go to an awards show… I was 16 and I was having an incredible time, but at the same time I was miserable. I look back at that and think you know what I may have been thinner then but I’m so happy that I’m healthy today. And I have curves which are a lot sexier than what I was aiming for. Now I think curves are beautiful.”
