My Hat’s Off To Demi Lovato!
Yes, That's right! My hat IS off to Demi lovato! Am I a fan? No. I coudn't name one of her songs. Let's face it, I'm not exactly her "Target Audience". I've spent my entire adult life in mass media, and have witnessed far too many incidences of the destructive impact fame can have on young people. Demi has admitted to an eating disorder.
She went to treatment for it. Good for her! Some people had unkind things to say about Demi's weight after her appearance on the VMA's over the weekend. Weight & people's attitudes about OTHER people's weight are sensitive issues for me, so I couldn't leave this one alone. I've looked at the video & I think she looks fantastic!
"Guess what, I'm healthy and happy, and if you're hating on my weight you obviously aren't" - Demi lovato
When I was a kid, there was a british model who went by one name, "Twiggy". That's not the kind of body image young girls need to be modelling themselves after.
