Demi Lovato: I've Gained 30 Pounds Since Rehab — Who Cares?

Fri, September 23, 2011 3:49pm EDT by 62 Comments

Demi Lovato admitted in a recent interview she’s put on weight since getting treatment last winter, but it’s worth it since she’s in a happier and healthier place. Don’t you agree?

When Demi Lovato admitted herself into treatment in Chicago last year, she was skipping meals, purging when she ate and mutilating herself. Now, healthier and happier, the 19-year-old performer says she’s put on 30 pounds — but she’s embracing her new found curves and staying about from the small screen.

“I just felt that being on camera for my first job wasn’t the smartest decision,” Demi told Amy Kaufman of the LA Times during a recent interview about her new album, Unbroken. “On TV, you have wardrobe fittings, you have four cameras on you at all times, and you’re worried about your angles and your lighting and your shots.”

When Demi was struggling with her eating disorder, she’d become a master at skipping meals…and no one noticed.

“I had learned how to control and manipulate everyone around me into believing that I was OK,” she explained. “I’d go to work on my TV show and, instead of getting lunch, I would go get my nails done or go tan or nap or something…No one was grilling me.”

Now things have changed in Demi’s life. She said in her interview she checks in with an adult after every meal to ensure her nutrition is on track, which has led to her gaining weight.

We think Demi’s curves fit her perfectly. She’s an inspiration to girls and women everywhere, who look to Hollywood stars to set standards of beauty. Keep up the great work, Demi! You’re an inspiration!

who cares if she gained weight? she got out of REHAB. that’s whats important. she hated and abused herself, and right when she’s better you have to cut her down? she’s gorgeous. shut up.

The pic on the left looks like a sickly child, and on the right, a sexy confident, beautiful woman. Her weight gain is not that noticeable, but the mental transformation is very obvious! Good for you girl!

she looks better now with curves, she looks more mature. but i hope people understand there’s a difference between eating whatever you want and gaining weight and gaining weight by eating right and being healthy.

Demi looks gorgeous I hate people calling her fat because she isn’t. She has curves and clearly looks amazing. Yes she has gained weight but she looks amazing and better that she as gained more weight. I’m happy that she isn’t the stereotypical hollywood model stick thin girl. It’s good that she is healthy and not stick thin. I’m so proud of her. She looks amazing. Nothing anyone says will change that she looks beautiful. She’s hot, beautiful, and has amazing curves. I would love to have her curves…I’m naturally skinny and wish I had curves. Demi looks amazing. She’s defiantly beautiful, hot, gorgeous…you name it.

she looks better skinnier. my friend is OBSESSED with her. she actually thinks she looks just like her, so in denial. so i hear about demi on a daily basis and beautiful voice, great new album, but she could tone up a bit.

That girl’s not fat, you’re just a d-bag with a low self esteem. You couldn’t get a girl like that if she gained 200lbs so go back to playing angry birds in ur moms basement and stfu..

Lot’s of people wear spanx under their dresses. Like Taylor Swift and she’s about as slim as they come.

I think she looks great!! And why are they saying she gained weight?? Do they know the reason behind it, we all do it was because she was starving herself. And now that she is eating right and often its a prob! No, I think she looks fine cuz that means she was XTREMELY TINY if she gained 30 lbs and still has a flat tummy and she not all jiggly cu lord knows i wuld have jelly all ova the place!! HAHA Either ways i think she looks great and is prob one of the best Singers from Disney and that young :D and she has curves in all the right places (im a girl and frankly im jealous) lolx jk

Come on guys. Demi is a singer, her job is making music, not being a model. And, in my opinion she’s looking absolutely hot. And even if she was fat, what’s the problem? People keep thinking celebrities needs to be ‘perfect’. Wanna know more? The real talent of an artist comes from the heart, from the mind, from the voice, not from the body. Demi IS hot.
