Demi Lovato: TV and film glorify unhealthy body image

OHMYGOSSIP — Demi Lovato has spoken out against the media for putting pressure on young girls. The Camp Rock actress said that the TV and film industries “glorify an unhealthy body image” that young women aspire to.

“I feel as if TV and movies are now glorifying an unhealthy body image which puts a lot of pressure on young girls who are trying to find themselves,” she told ITV1’s Daybreak.

“A lot of girls that are young are insecure and they look to the media to see what she should look like. The film and TV industry should take more responsibility.”

The 19-year-old singer was sent to rehab in 2010 after struggling with an eating disorder, cutting and depression.

When asked what advice she would give young girls that look up to her, she explained: “As much as it hurts to be bullied, always rise above it, vocalise what’s going on. You can’t keep it inside, it’s dangerous to let emotions bottle up.”

Speaking about her getting over her own troubles in the past year, she added: “A lot of people ask me, ‘Do you think it’s because you started so young?’ I say, ‘No, because the problems were starting when I was 12 years old’.

“I was bullied when I was 12, that’s when I got really sick. It’s been going on a while now, but finally I’ve gotten help.”

On her recent single ‘Skyscraper’, she said: “I’m very proud of it, it’s the perfect anthem for what I’ve gone through in the past year. It’s about overcoming issues, it’s the perfect song to come back with.”
