Demi Lovato: The Kardashians helped me accept myself

Demi Lovato says the Kardashians helped her accept her curves.

The 'Cool For The Summer' hitmaker has praised the famous family - which includes Kim Kardashian West, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian - for showing her that beauty was achievable for everyone, whatever shape and size.

She said: "When the Kardashians came on the scene - that was the first time that I really associated curves with beauty and it was just so new to me. I remember thinking, 'Wow that's so cool.'

"And even in a time when I was still struggling with food I was able to look at Kim's curves and be like I should really be proud of my curves. And because of that and now it's you know, obviously there's tons of beautiful, curvy women out there, but it made me feel more confident in my skin to do that Vanity Fair shoot."

The 23-year-old singer also hopes she can now be a role model for young people going through the same thing as she did when she was younger.

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she added: "I was growing up at the kind of age where your body starts changing and you want to be cool. It was in that era of when very, very, very thin people were the popular people in Hollywood so that's what I had to look up to.

"And after having had my issues with eating looking back I thought, 'I want to be the difference for people growing up' because I wish that somebody had gone to me whenever I was 12, 13 and said, 'Hey, you don't have to look like that to be cool.'"
