Demi ‘I Have A Different Body Type’

Demi Lovato confessed to Starpulse about her struggle feel beautiful inside and out: ‘I guess it’s a challenge just feeling beautiful, knowing that I’m different. I have a different body type than other people. I’m not your typical skinny, tall girl, but I love my body that I’m in.

One day I want to continue to help with bullying, or girls that feel insecure about their beauty, or things like that. I know that my purpose in life is to do more with the dreams that I have.’

  • Grace

    I find it really insulting when someone like Demi Lovato who let’s face it, IS PRETTY DAMN SKINNY is giving interviews telling people, shes unlike most skinny tall girls. I think that makes it worse cuz shes basically saying she’s fat compared to other people her age or famous. yeah she doesnt look like she’s withering away like Selena but she is still very thin and this upsets me.
    ———
    i have the same body type as Demi. we are both thin but we have to work to keep the weight off. Selena is naturally skinny so she doesn’t have to work out cuz she is tiny boned. People like me who have the same body type as Demi are tiny bones. yes Demi is thin but she is not stick thi. what she is saying is that everyone has different body types and hers is having to work to be skinny.

    Also, WTF?
    Like afew weeks ago you guys were bashing her
    for being “fat”, bipolar much?

    “I’m not your typical skinny, tall girl, but I love my body that I’m in.”

    If you haven’t noticed Demi, “typical” girls are NOT tall and skinny. the average 16 year old girl’s weight is 135.6 pounds and height is 5’3. Is you are that height and weight, you are not skinny. Your BMI is 24. Normal weight = 18.5-24.9, Overweight = 25-29.9. Gain another pound and your considered overweight. Of corse the BMI does not take how much muscle you have compared to fat, so there are some exceptions. I don’t believe Demi is any when near that weight, so she should relize that not every girl is skinny and tall. Most are not!

    If for some reason you don’t believe me, here is where I got the information.

    I don’t think she was talking about girls in general,
    but girls in the industry.
    I think that information is wrong, I’m 17 and 5’4
    and I’m a great deal shorter then most girls my age.

  • Steph

    I love Demi honestly

    But this is pissing me off i mean i think she has got a bb
    a beautiful body

    And her saying (in a way) that she is fat pisses me
    off. I’m like twice her size and it makes me feel
    really fat

  • panic at the springfield

    Look fool…i dont dislike her because of this and plus and what the hell are you talkin about she said she was happy with her body…and plus ive been reading other posts and she just thinks everybody knows her…and she even said one time she has curves…aha shittt

    umm did she say she had curves? she said she is not like the typical tall and skinny you see, which is true, especially in the industry.

    im naturally skinny and 5″7 and im only 15 so it really doesnt matter
    but i dont get why she says stuff like that
    “Knowing that I’m different. I have a different body type than other people.”
    why does she think shes so different from everyone else, alot of people have her shape/size
    ¬_¬

    In my personal opinion she is GORGEOUS in the inside and outside! I think what she’s trying to say is that love the body you are in! Love how you are!!!!! Who cares if she is not the perfect curvy hollywood girl……..as long as she is healthy she is FINE!!!!
    Plus Selena isn’t stick skinny……seriously you guys she isn’t! Just because she is a little thinner on the thighs and arms, etc. Doesn’t mean she is a STICK!!!!
    Just like Demi as long as Selena is healthy…..she doesn’t need to worry about her body and if she is too skinny!
    Demi and Selena are 2 beautiful young girls who have a great future ahead of them!
    I LOVE YOU DEMI AND SELENA!!!!!!!!!!!

    wow calling other people IDIOTS on a demi lovato site, sooo mature and classy. You’re the one attacking my own personal view. AND SHE ANOTHER DISNWY STAR WITH NO BOOBS OR CURVES. I’d say, she has “the same exact body type as everyone else. and ur the fucking idiot if you think Miley actually has any real curves. A tiny curve around the torso area is NOT a curve.

    yea and she also said it was a challenging feeling beautiful; if she thinks she has curves thats on her, techincally she does, she just isnt the curviest person in the world, but she didnt say that here now did she. i just dont get where you are getting this “she thinks everyone knows her” theory. who are you to say what she thinks.

    she looks like audrey kitching with that pink hair..
    i always thought they kinda looked alike.

    How come if this was Miley you’d all be like “AW GO MILEZ SHES ZO FIERCE!!!” then put a picture of Tyra Banks. or “AW MILEZZ WORK THOZE CURVES!!!” [that she doesn’t have].
    She’s just giving you her opinion on her body. I’m Demi’s size and I feel fat sometimes, too. Most girls do, she’s no different.
    PS- I like Miley. More than Demi. Just FYI.

    Love Demi though!

    is it really true that she was the one who used to bully? i mean, anyone can come online and claim they were a victim of hers, so i dunno…even if she was the bully, i guess she realized it was wrong and decided to do something about it…still, she shouldnt have said she was the one who was bullied IF it is true

    it’s HER body, i think she would know…stop judging her

  • heather

    omg u guys listen. shes skiny–but the reason shes saying shes not stick skinny is bcuz shes BIG BONED!!! there are 2 types of bodies–petite, and big boned, big boned does not equal fat and petite does not equal skinny. selena is petite and REALLY skinny, miley is petite and skinny, and demi is big boned and skinny.

  • DamnThatMotherChucker

    I know!! But I know I find comfort in knowing I’m not alone even tho sometimes it seems nobody understands where Im coming from,that there’s girls all over the world with the same problem,also talk to family members and see if they had the same issues at your age,my mom did but once she turned 18 she got curves! But until then just be happy your healthy and ignore mean or bad comments,that what I do! Some celebs cleary dunno what their talking bout!!

  • gabby

    yea compared to everyone else in hollywood, she is shorter and not as skinny. shes thin, but seriously look at everyone else! shes not only talking about disney people you amateurs think outside the box, goodness. and i have a body like demis, and feel incredibly fat because all of my friends are skinny. but at the end of the day i say im fine, and i should be happy. thats what demis saying. what the eff is wrong with that?!?!?!?!

    I think she just wants all girls to love their selfs.

    I think what demi means is that she isn’t supermodel tall or supermodel skinny. She has a small figure but with thicker thighs than most people her size. and her chest isn’t as large as alot of girls her age.

    Skinny is Selena. Average is Demi.

    You know in my country, having a body like Demi’s is considered to be FAT!!! And that brought me down a lot, ‘cuz I have a body that is kinda bigger than hers. Even though I don’t weigh much, people don’t care. You’re a little chubby, and right away they think: Ugh, fat bitch!!! It doesn’t matter how much you weigh, it’s how you look that matters. A lot of you guys might say that I’m focus too much on looks, but isn’t that how the real world rolls???

    She totally has the right to defend the other girls who feel helpless about their bodies. But those are just words. I’ll never be able to feel good about my body with all those girls insulting me and calling me fat ho.

    Anyway, love Demi.
