Demi Lovato has stripped off for a sultry nude, makeup-free photoshoot and says she felt it was ''empowering'' to strip off and show her true beauty.
Demi Lovato found it ''empowering'' to pose nude with no makeup.
The 23-year-old singer has boldly posed for Vanity Fair magazine without any clothes, makeup or retouching, and admits it's a huge progression from her past history of suffering from eating disorders.
Speaking in a video accompanying the sexy photoshoot, Demi said: ''In the past I suffered from eating disorders and I basically went from hating every inch of my body to working on myself and figuring out ways to love myself and love the skin that I'm in.
''I learned that you can get to a place that you love the skin you're in.''
The 'Cool for the Summer' hitmaker chose to pose naked as she prepares to release her new album 'Confident', and believes the title reflects feeling ''comfortable in your own skin''.
She explained: ''I thought there was something incredible about the idea of no makeup whatsoever, no clothes and no retouching. I would never have thought I'd get to a place in my life where I'm comfortable doing that.
''It's empowering and it shows other women you can get to a place where you can overcome the obstacles of body image issues, you can feel comfortable and confident in your skin.''
Demi embraced the sultry photoshoot with open arms and feels as though she's showing fans her true self.
Speaking to the magazine, she said: ''What does it mean to be confident? It means letting go, being authentic, saying I don't give a f**k and this is who I am. I want to show the side of me that's real, that's liberated, that's free.''
