Demi Lovato Smolders in Sexy Bikini, Says Rehab Helped Her Shed Her Disney Image
By Rachel McRady
Demi’s down time! As she tours the globe for her Future Now Tour with pal Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato is taking full advantage of any free time she gets. On Thursday, the “Stone Cold” singer took to Snapchat to share some sunny pics with her fans from Canada.
“Making new memories in Vancouver,” she captioned one photo on a boat with a Canadian flag waving.
She also shared a belfie with two of her pals, writing, “Lauren Kelsey and my a**.”
Lovato, 24, also gave her best Kardashian impression, posing at the front of the boat in a sexy neon bikini with string cutouts and a bold pattern.
Lately, the singer has been touring non-stop. She has several more dates in Canada before returning to the States on the last day of August.
Lovato recently sat down with her tourmate, Jonas, for an interview with The Calgary Herald when the topic of shedding their Disney star images came up. Lovato said she had an easier time than Jonas moving past her child actor past thanks to her 2011 stint in rehab.
“For me, the transition was a little bit easier because I didn’t have to do anything to break out of the Disney mould. It’s a lot easier when you just go to rehab,” said the mental health advocate. “So, I kind of grew up really fast in the public eye in that way and so when it was time to release my music, I think people looked at me differently. I wanted to prove to people that I wasn’t just a stereotypical Hollywood starlet that goes to rehab and falls back into the trap of the things that got her there. I wanted to make sure that the music that I made was great and that I was passionate about the music that I put out and I sang my heart out.”
Lovato has remained clean and sober since and now works hard to be an advocate for mental health.
