Singer Demi Lovato does not take trolls to heart and this she revealed in the latest Ellen DeGeneres show.
Talking to the TV host Ellen, Demi said, "I've been working on myself for the past year, more so than I've ever worked on myself. I've really surrendered to the process of just learning to love yourself, and I feel like it shows through my pictures."
Demi spoke about posting more number of photos of self in a bikini on Instagram and said, "I post more bathing suit pictures online. I want to show my fans that it's possible that they can get to that self-love too."
However, what used to pull her down earlier doesn't affect her anymore.
Commenting on the haters, she said, "I've taken away the power from the negative comments and the haters by not listening to them and if I do see it, I just feel sorry for them, because who leaves a negative comment on somebody's profile on the internet? You have to be kind of sad to do that. I've taken away the power, and it just feels great."
While Demi admits she's made lots of progress, she's still a bit self-conscious about one swimsuit photo she posted on January 4.
This is the photo she is talking about:
So, I’m insecure about my legs in this picture but I’m posting it because I look so happy and this year I’ve decided I’m letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self criticism. Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing. Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes. Today I’m feeling strong. You all can do it too. It IS possible. Thank you God for this new chapter in my life. #EDrecovery #happyAF
She went on to add: "I actually was very hesitant about posting that because I didn't love my legs in it. You know every time you look at a picture of yourself you critique it. I'm a perfectionist. I decided to post it anyway because I thought, ‘You know what, it's me, it's who I am and I love my body, so I'm just going to post it."
"I posted it because I look so happy," Demi summed up her feeling before adding "That's what I love about that picture."
