Demi Lovato hopped on Instagram to share a fitness update. The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer flaunted a flat belly in a pic that had her tugging at her own pants. She thanked her trainers for helping her get the rocking bod and explained why the post meant so much to her.
“I rarely post pics with my belly button showing because I’m normally insecure about showing my full stomach, but I’ve been working really hard,” she wrote in the caption. “I’ve been seeing progress so I thought I’d post this cause I’m feeling myself right now!!”
Demi has long been a champion for body positivity and has opened up about her stretch marks in the past. But it looks like whatever stretch marks she did have disappeared in real life or in the filter she used.
The Shade Room shared the photo with love for Demi, but its followers weren’t so kind. People accused Demi of Photoshopping the pic because her belly button is barely visible in the shot. Others pointed to the curve of the mirror she was taking her selfie in as proof that it had been digitally altered.
Demi hasn’t responded to the controversy as she prepares to drop her “Instruction” music video. But don’t be surprised if Demi decides to share some words with the folks questioning her body’s legitimacy.
