The photos were shot by celebrity photographer Patrick Ecclesine at the singer’s hotel room in New York City, with Demi deciding the night before that she wanted to appear nude and unretouched.

Speaking to the magazine Lovato said, "The reason I decided to do this photo shoot was because when I think of confident I think of many things, but one thing in particular is feeling comfortable in your own skin.”

“I thought there was something incredible about the idea of no makeup whatsoever, no clothes and no retouching. It's empowering and it shows other women that you can get to a place where you can overcome the obstacles of body image issues and you can feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.”
