Demi Lovato isn’t taking any comments about her weight sitting down.
The singer, who has been working hard at recovery and staying sober following an overdose last summer, took to her Instagram page to slam a headline discussing her “fuller figure.”
The piece, which ran on Inquisitr.com, is entitled “Demi Lovato Appears To Have A Fuller Figure After Working Up A Sweat In LA.”
In response, she wrote: “I am more than my weight. Unlike the past, I’m not triggered, I’m not upset that someone wrote a headline about my ‘fuller figure.’ I’m angry that people think it’s okay to write headlines about people’s body shapes. Especially a woman who has been so open about being in recovery from an eating disorder. I’m not upset for myself but for anyone easily influenced by the diet culture.”
“Too many people today base their ideal body weight off of what OTHERS tell us we should look like or weigh,” she wrote in a second post. “Articles like these only contribute to that toxic way of thinking. If you’re reading this: Don’t listen to negative diet culture talk. You are more than a number on a scale. And I am more than a headline about my body shape.”
Demi’s fans weren’t the only ones to notice her response. Apparently, the site’s editor, Fabio Magnocavallo, had an exchange with her in her DMs.
“Firstly, a sincere ‘Thank you’ to Demi Lovato for her grace and patience in our exchange,” Magnocavallo wrote in an update at the top of the piece. “While I wrote this story with the best of intentions, I totally appreciate and understand her perspective on the matter and culture in general and I truly appreciate her taking the time to have a dialogue with me about it. As Demi said to me, ‘our voices are all we have to create the biggest change on this planet.'”
