After sporting rather revealing outfits in the video for "Cool For The Summer" and gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan this month, Demi Lovato clearly loves her body. But it hasn't always been that way.

The singer opened up about the Cosmo cover to E! News, suggesting that it was less about showing off her body and more of a reflection of where she is with her self confidence now. 

"It took so much for me to get a place where I would feel comfortable enough to do that," Lovato told E!. "If anything, it's showing all of my fans who know my story and my journey that I've gone from hating every inch of my body to doing a photo shoot in my underwear in front of the entire world. That's more of statement to me than just looking sexy on a magazine cover...it's so important for me to show people that."
