Demi Lovato has emerged as one of the biggest champions of self-acceptance and positive body image in her industry. So we were a little shocked to hear the 21-year-old singer tell Miami’s Y100 that, of all the people to give plastic surgery, she’d choose herself to go under the knife.
During a game involving “naughty” and “nice” Q&A, Demi pulled a question from a Santa hat that read: "You were picked to give one celebrity plastic surgery. Who would it be and what type of surgery?" After initially refusing to answer, Demi finally answered, "It should be me! I should get a boob job. They're like mosquito bites."
Thankfully, it’s pretty obvious Demi was joking — and also probably trying desperately to avoid saying something mean about another celebrity. Since her rehab stay for substance abuse, self-harm, and an eating disorder, the “Neon Lights” singer has been one of the most outspoken celebrities when it comes to the unrealistic and unfair beauty standards heaped upon women.As for Demi’s, um, mosquito bites, we’re fairly certain they’ll stay intact, even if she’s a little self conscious about their size. Take heart, Demi! After all, aren’t people always saying good things come in small packages?
