Demi Lovato is ready to ditch the turtlenecks for tank tops.
“A year ago, on tour, almost every inch of my body was covered by clothing, and it was because I was hiding behind so many layers. Once I started feeling better about myself, I felt better about showing more skin,” the 23-year-old singer told Allure magazine.”I have insecurities about my arms, so to wear a tank top on stage is extremely liberating for me, and uncomfortable sometimes. It’s also a statement, like, ‘Hey, watch out. You’re no longer getting the insecure Demi that you’ve been getting for the past couple of years. I mean business now.’”

With her six-year romance with Wilmer Valderrama still going strong, Lovato also shared that her life’s purpose isn’t about how many calories she consumes in a day.
“My food choices don’t rule my life anymore,” she said.
And while Lovato’s life these days may seem like a modern-day fairy tale, it isn’t without a few awkward moments.
“I was getting laser hair removal … down south … and the lady started talking about how her kid was a huge fan,” she said. “Boundaries.”
