Wait, Demi Lovato Is Now Considered Fat?

So, Demi Lovato was one of the many celebrities on my MTV Sunday night at this year’s (truly terrible) Video Music Awards. I was happy to see her, not that I am even a fan of her work (Disney’s Sonny With A Chance and some bad Top 40 songs), but because I had heard she has had a rough year.

Besides apparently going into a deep depression after years of intense media scrutiny (okay, but she decided to be famous, right?) and a painful break-up with one of the Jonas Brothers (not sure if it was the twins or the Mexican one), she also fought a serious bout of anorexia for nearly six years.

[photogallerylink id=133248] So she took the time and got the help she needed, then the minute she returned to the public spotlight she was greeted with a chorus of remarks, both online and to her face that she is now FAT!

Naturally, it started playing out on Twitter, the nation’s real-time newspaper, the night of the show and Demi fought back. See what she said plus more photos from Sunday night.

Demi‘s first tweet after the show, later deleted, read, “I’ve gained weight. Get over it.That’s what happens when you get out of treatment for AN EATING DISORDER”

She later added, “Guess what, I’m healthy and happy, and if you’re hating on my weight you obviously aren’t. 🙂 #UNBROKEN.”

From an article from the International Business Times (the what?) this week:

“According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, (ANAD), ‘Anorexia is the third most common chronic illness among adolescents.’ 81 percent of 10 year-olds are afraid of becoming fat. 47 percent of girls between 5th and 12th grade say that they want to lose weight because of photos they have seen in magazines. 69 percent of girls in the same group say that images in magazines have affected their idea of what a perfect body is.

And yet: ‘The body type portrayed in advertising as the ideal is possessed naturally by only five percent of American females,’ (ANAD) said. Pressure is in abundance. Unfortunately, body shape is only one example of ‘perfection’ girls feel pressured to attain.”

By-the-way, thank God for the ideal 5 percent but still, let’s cut women who are closer to normal like Demi some slack too. Not everyone needs to be a size zero. And another thing, I only hang out with obese people so it makes me look super-thin by comparison. Maybe Demi needs to dump Selena and make Precious her new BFF so those photos start coming out instead.

    She looks HEALTHY. Perhaps those who called her fat need to get off twitter and research what a healthy person looks like. All I know about her is that she went to rehab for what I think was an eating disorder? Hell I don’t follow her because I’m not into what she “sells” either, but for frick’s sake.. Can we stop praising how skeletal women look and calling them beautiful? I’m not saying to encourage obesity either, but a HEALTHY balance is well.. healthy!

  2. Wow, really? She has a bangin’ body! I would KILL to have that body… Smh..

    1. steve says:

      She is not that fat now but i can see where she is going and it’s not pretty.

      1. Brianna says:

  3. Serg says:

  4. gss says:

    She is kind of fat actually.

    1. yea says:

      You’re kind of retarded, actually.

  5. Carol says:

    Anyone that would call her fat is damaged. Real women have curves.

    1. Anonymous says:

      So thin women aren’t real?

      1. Katey Barnes says:

        Thin women are real but not all woman need to be a size zero. I was 116 at one point and now I’m 129 and I love my curves and apparently so does a lot of people. Just because she is curvy doesnt mean anything. She’s hot, healthy, and damn beautiful so that’s all that matters.

      2. Emma says:

        keep telling yourself that

  6. Louie says:

    oh yea, she is definitely P.H.A.T!!!

  7. daniel serna says:

    POUND TOWN!!!!

  8. cris says:

    i think she is beautiful:) no doubt about that if you think she isnt you need to look again

  9. Sarah says:

    Kevin, you are ignorant and one of the very reasons why so many young women struggle with eating disorders. She looks healthy, and by no means fat. And by the way, why do you have standards for women to be skinny, when obviously you don’t have that same standard for yourself or other men?

  10. Mike says:

    She would look better if she dropped 10 pounds. However, I would rather do Demi than Kim Kardashian. Kim has a grossly obese ass. At least Demi’s body is pretty proportional.

  11. steve rasco says:

    She doesn’t look fat…more like big boned. But i bet she has a great personality. All big girls do. And now she can shop at Lane Bryant.

  12. Anthony says:

    She looks good. Kevin, you haves issues.

  13. Brandon B says:

    Not fat unlike Kevin’s mouth.

  14. She’s got some fat in ALL THE RIGHT PLACES! She is hot and I would hit it………… (If she let me)!

  15. I think she looks smokin! Talk about curvacious! I like her new -Healthy- figure.

  16. Arnold says:

    I don’t think she looks fat BUT standing to Selena “Beanpole” Gomez isn’t helping her. Selena looks so thin she has to run around in the shower just to get hit by the water.

    1. sojro says:

      aaaaaaahahahahahaaaa…..that seriously made me crack up over here. Startled my dog, lmao!

  17. Conor says:

    Way to go. A great posting ruined by mocking Gabourey Sidibe. BEAN THE INTERNET POST KILLAAAA!

  18. Joe says:

    She does have a big face. Maybe that’s where people are getting that she looks fat.

  19. Junior Lopez says:

    if you say that she is fatter than she was a couple years ago, well news flash! she was a little teenage girl a couple years ago! she is not fat, she looks great!

  20. Gene Simmons says:

    Demi Lovato isnt fat, she looks perfect just the way she is. She looks way better now than she did months ago when she had her breakdown. The few pounds she gained (in all the right places I might add) and the nice tan not only make her look like a completely different person, she also looks more feminine and mature. I know a lot of guys who would kill just to have a fine woman like her on their arm. Keep it up girl, at least there’s one famous Demi who looks like a real woman.

  21. sojro says:

    Dude, she looks like a porn star (and I mean that in a good way) and Selena looks like she just jumped out of the Mickey Mouse club. Come on folks…get a clue.

  22. santo says:

    she’s more beautiful now than before.

  23. Amy says:

    stop hating. she is who she is leave her alone. she is BEAUTIFUL. inside and out. whatever people do or have now and days you idiots come out and start criticizing. like seriously? GET A LIFE. demi your gorgeous’ dont let anyone tell you different. ❤

  24. Hey you says:

    Oh come on! That is why ppl become anorexic, Stop saying stupid stuff about girls, this life sucks if you are not skinny you are ugly.. wow, we are so stupid seriously…

  25. Katey Barnes says:

    She’s sexy and damn gorgeous so her weight doesn’t matter. Tons of women want to look like that and they act like assholes because they cant

  26. Den says:

    so she’s the one who ate my goat!

  27. Ambert says:

    Shes hot and she sings 10 times better than Selena. Selena can’t sing even if her life depended on it…

  28. Anna says:

    Lol shes not fat at all, she just have an amazing body, and curves! shes beatiful and hot :3.

  29. Bert says:

    her hair doesn’t look right even thought she gained weight it’s better actually it’s just a hair i prefer black

  30. paige v says:

    What part of eating disorder and distorted body image don’t you people get?! She’s HAPPY. F what you you think. Are you as HAPPY with your body? Obviously not, because if you were you wouldn’t be spending your energy putting someone else down. The End. Oh and she looks thin and toned. Not “fat”.

  31. paige v says:

    Also…we don’t need to put someone down for being thin, either because that hurts as well. I hope Selena is healthy and happy with her body because that’s all that matters. Not if she’s a pole which she’s not.

  32. Sean J says:

    I mean I would still put it in her butt

  33. Sophie says:

    F**k all the people that saying that she’s Fat! You guys are the soo superficielle! I can’t believe how cruel you are! GROW UP! Seriously It’s time…

  34. Sophie says:

    You guyss just think about what you said…. Okay?

  35. Almond says:

    Beautiful girl, inside and out. I dont consider her fat, but i do think she can qualify as “thick”. She went from having an eating disorder to gaining quite a bit of weight. I think she used to be what..116 or 120? Making her about 150 now. Not fat, but not ideal for her height. I think she should just hire a trainer and eat right and fufill a healthy lifestyle. The “dropping”, and “gaining” is not the way to do things. Although she’s confident and happy, so i wish her the best of luck:)

  36. alondra says:

    Thats so sad 😦
    shes not FAT!!!!!
    Poor demi she got bullied when she was young because she was fat, so then she cut herself at age 11. Demi is so strong but, i think her and selena gomez make really good friends.
