Demi Lovato has been an advocate of positive body image for years, but she herself admitted that it is only now that she is ready to show some skin. She is also already at the point when counting calories is passé.

Being the cover girl of February's Allure magazine, Lovato spilled why she is now more confident to show more skin. According to her, she was not as confident last year. Whenever she went to perform for her tour, she was wearing clothing that covers almost every inch of her body. She said that was her "hiding behind so many layers." However, as she started to accept her body more and to feel better about herself, showing more skin is not a problem anymore.

She added that she really means business now. "I have insecurities about my arms, so to wear a tank top on stage is extremely liberating for me, and uncomfortable sometimes. It's also a statement, like, 'Hey, watch out. You're no longer getting the insecure Demi that you've been getting for the past couple of years," she explained. Now that she is in a happier and healthier place, she also said she stopped counting calories already. She said her food choices do not conquer her thoughts anymore. 

The "Confident" singer is so sure of her body that not only is she willing to wear nothing but underwear for the Allure photoshoot, but she also wanted to share to her fans the untouched photos. She took to her Instagram account, where she has around 32 million followers, to post an underwear selfie she took while completing the magazine photoshoot. She captioned it with how proud she is to show her body the way it naturally is, not digitally enhanced.

WWD reports that Victoria's Secret seemingly took notice of the singer-actress's higher confidence because it offered her the chance to perform on its "Swim Special," to be aired on CBS on March 9. Lovato will be joined by Nick Jonas. The "Swim Special" will feature the VS Angels in their alluring bikinis. This is the swimwear counterpart to its lingerie show. The special was shot on the beautiful island of St. Barth's, located in the French West Indies.
