Yes, I was at the VMAs and I was sixteen and I was having an incredible time but I was miserable." She further explained how she now feels so much more comfortable in her own body and stated, "I'm so happy that I'm healthy today and I have curves which are a lot sexier than what I was aiming for then. Now I think curves are beautiful and I feel great."

Lovato also addressed how she feels about women with curves being admired and in positions of power and influence within the media. She explained how the perception of beauty has changed from "extremely underweight" models and actresses to women such as Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian who have revolutionised "what our generations view, and perception, of what beautiful is." 

Lovato was particularly keen to emphasise the Kardashian's role in changing views and perceptions. Of their "huge impact", Lovato said "You can think whatever you want about the Kardashians but they really did help tonnes of women feel comfortable in their own skin." Alongside Beyonce and the Kardashians, Lovato praised Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson and Sofia Vergara for having "amazing" yet "realistic and achievable" figures.
