AceShowbiz - Demi Lovato is not here for any body-shaming. The "Stone Cold" singer slams a headline in The Inquistr which focused on her "fuller figure."
Sharing a screencap of the said article, Demi took to her Instagram Stories to make sure that everyone knows that she doesn't care about what people have to say about her body. "I AM MORE THAN MY WEIGHT," she wrote.
Demi, who has publicly battled an eating disorder and other mental health issues, later explained in separate post, "Unlike the past, I'm not triggered. I'm not upset that someone wrote a headline about my 'fuller figure.' "
Instead, Demi revealed that she was "angry that people think it's okay to write headlines about people's body shapes. Especially a woman who has been so open about being in recovery from an eating disorder." She continued, "I'm not upset for myself but for anyone easily influenced by the diet culture."
"Articles like these only contribute to that toxic way of thinking," she added. "If you're reading this: Don't listen to negative diet culture talk. You are more than a number on a scale and I am more than a headline about my body shape."
Fans are loving how the singer stood up for herself. "I love her so much there are literally no words to describe how much I love this bad a** women," a fan said.
Soon after, the author of the article reached out to Demi to apologize. Demi shared a screenshot of Fabio Magnocavallo's text on her DM which saw the writer saying, "You're an incredible talent and you're right, your body is not all you are. This is a lesson learnt."
The Inquistr's post remained on the site, though Magnocavallo added a note on the article, thanking the star for her "grace and patience." He wrote, "While I wrote this story with the best of intentions, I totally appreciate and understand her perspective on the matter and culture in general, and I truly appreciate her taking the time to have a dialogue with me about it. As Demi said to me, 'Our voices are all we have to create the biggest change on this planet.' "
