Demi Lovato sits down for an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Wednesday (February 10).
The 23-year-old singer opened up about body image and how Kim Kardashian‘s curves helped her be comfortable with her own body.
“I was growing up at the kind of age where your body starts changing and you want to be cool. It was in that era of when very, very, very thin people were the popular people in Hollywood so that’s what I had to look up to,” Demi said. “And after having had my issues with eating looking back I thought, ‘I want to be the difference for people growing up’ because I wish that somebody had gone to me whenever I was 12, 13 and said, “hey, you don’t have to look like that to be cool.”
“And when the Kardashians came on the scene that was the first time that I really associated curves with beauty and it was just so new to me,” Demi added. “I remember thinking wow that’s so cool and even in a time when I was still struggling with food I was able to look at Kim’s curves and be like I should really be proud of my curves. And because of that and now it’s ya know, obviously there’s tons of beautiful, curvy women out there, but it made me feel more confident in my skin to do that Vanity Fair shoot.”
