Demi Lovato is proud of her ''hot body''.

The 23-year-old singer battled an eating disorder in the past but says she has finally overcome her issues and wants to inspire others.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge with Clara Amfo, she said: ''Now I have worked on myself and I look hot, so I am going to work it.

''I'm going to show the world that you can go from having an eating disorder and hating your body to wearing underwear on the cover of a magazine and love it. It's possible and that's what I want to show people. I'm owning it.''

Demi - who is preparing to release her fifth album 'Confident' - also revealed that she will always share her personal life with her fans but is ready to move on from her past.

She said: ''It's a little too late to turn back from sharing and pouring my heart out to the whole world

''There are emotional songs on my new album but for the most part it's a new chapter and I'm tired of my past defining who I am and my brand. This album is not just about what I've been through, it's more soulful and sexier.''
