Demi Lovato doesn’t have a thigh gap and she’s proud of it!

The singer recently took to Instagram to show off her curves and captioned the pic,

“I don’t have a thigh gap and I’m still beautiful the way I am. #recovery #selflove #EVERYbodyisbeautiful.”

This isn’t the first time that Lovato has taken to social media to put the term “thigh gap” on blast. She previously posted a similar picture in 2015 and wrote,

“Regardless of what society tells you these days… You don’t have to have a thigh gap to be beautiful. It is possible to love your body the way it is.”

She later told Entertainment Tonight,

“I keep hearing the term ‘thigh gap’ more and more frequently. I feel like when things like that are set in society’s ideal of what beauty is, and it’s repeated over and over, it gets put into your brain. If you have one naturally, then great, embrace what you have. But, if you don’t have one naturally, you don’t have to starve yourself or engage in unhealthy behaviors — if you don’t have a thigh gap naturally, it doesn’t mean you aren’t beautiful.”

Ever since returning from rehab back in the day for her addiction and mental health issues, Demi has been a huge advocate for being fit and healthy over being thin. She’s always embraced her body and has frequently encouraged her fans to do the same. Just another reason why Demi’s our role model!
