Demi Lovato has spent too much of her life hating the body she was in, and now she wants to close the book on that once and for all by having a nude photo shoot with no “touch ups” or makeup whatsoever.
“In the past I suffered from eating disorders and I basically went from hating every single inch of my body to working on myself and trying to figure out ways to love myself, love the skin I’m in,” Lovato told Vanity Fair.
Lovato’s body issues became public a few years ago after she left rehab, but now she is truly aiming to love herself completely for who she is.

In a world filled with filters, digital re-editing, and layers upon layers of makeup, these photos show an authentic version of Lovato. And despite striping away all the fancy lights and allusions, she still hits it out of the park.
