is never shy about speaking up against unrealistic body expectations, photoshop, eating disorders and more, and this week she continued her crusade.
The 24-year-old singer recently came across fan art on Instagram depicting her as half-mermaid and critiqued the artists portrayal of her body.
“Is that how my boobs should look?,” Lovato commented. “It’s gorgeous but that’s not my body,” she added, according to screenshots from fans.
The 17-year old Romanian artist said in response to her comments, saying any negative impact was unintentional. “If I make your waist slimmer and your boobs bigger to accentuate the fact that I drew you as a mermaid, a mythological creature, doesn’t mean I say that you should look like that or all girls should look like that. That’s how I imagine mermaids,” he wrote. “I worked a lot on that drawing and I was proud of it, but not anymore.”
