The singer sat down with Access Hollywood to talk about her upcoming world tour, and how her perception of her body has changed over the years.
“The very first time that I ever went to the VMAS, I just looked so bony and fragile and unhappy,” she recalls of the awards show. “Yes, I was at the VMAs and I was 16 and I was having an incredible time, but at the same time I was miserable.”
Lovato admits she is happier now that she’s at a healthier weight.
“I look back at that and I think… I may have been thinner, but I am so happy that I am healthy today and I have curves, which are a lot more sexier than what I was aiming for,” she says. “I think curves are beautiful, and I feel great.”
Lovato, who has been candid about her struggles with bulimia, notes her celebrity role models growing up were all very thin.
“When I was growing up and when I was a pre-teen, the people that I had to look up to [for] body image [were] extremely underweight… [They] were all very bony at that time, and that was the in thing,” she explains.
The singer says, “I really credit women like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian… [They] completely revolutionized what our generation’s view of perception of what beautiful is, and I really think that they had a huge impact on that.”
“You can think whatever you want about the Kardashians, but they really did help tons of women feel comfortable in their own skin, and I like to carry that message on,” adds Lovato.
