Demi Lovato teams up with Vanity Fair's Patrick Ecclesine in a ‘no makeup, no clothes, no retouching’. Recovering from the death of her great-grandfather just the other day before this shoot, Lovato sits down with the VF photographer to discuss how she visualised the shoot will turn out. At that point, despite from being emotionally drained and having to begin the shoot at 12 in the morning, Demi was determined to express what confidence now means to her.

Here, Demi shares what led her to the decision to go brazen in front of the camera despite her personal issues with her image and her figure.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past day, it’s that life is too short,” she said.

“I’m about to launch an album that finally represents who I truly am. How do I embrace this new chapter in my life? How do I really walk the walk? What does it mean to be confident? It means letting go, being authentic, saying I don’t give a fuck and this is who I am. I want to show the side of me that’s real, that’s liberated, that’s free. What if we do a photo shoot where it’s totally raw? Super-sexy, but no makeup, no fancy lighting, no retouching, and no clothing. Let’s do it here, let’s do it now.”

“When I left her at three in the morning, she gave me a quick hug and thanked me for making her feel pretty. I thanked her for her confidence,” says Ecclesine.

This is the singer's way of rising above negativity and facing herself; accepting who she is and loving it. She wanted to show women everywhere that whatever form they may have, they deserve the love they can give to themselves. They deserve to feel comfortable in their own skin.

And in all honesty, we think she's at her best when there's no trace of processed tint and powder on her face nor a hint of airbrushing from Photoshop—as do all women. Just skin and her overpowering sense of newfound confidence.

WOW indeed
WOW indeed

Absolutely.
