On Sept. 5, Lovato shared her first unedited bikini photo to mark National Cellulite Day. She told fans she was "literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited - and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me."
"This is what I got," Lovato continued. "I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards. So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day."0comments
Johnson appeared on Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise Season 6. He was in the running to be the new Bachelor, but it is increasingly looking like Peter Weber will lead the new season next year.
