Demi Lovato Said She Finally Has "The Boobs She Wanted" After Resolving To Eat Whatever She Wants
"But let this be a lesson y’all."
Earlier this year, she opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about recovering from her eating disorder — a disorder that her old management team had actively encouraged by strictly controlling her diet.
"I lived a life for the past six years that I felt wasn't my own, because I struggled really hard with an eating disorder," she told Ellen.
"If I was in my hotel room at night, [my management team] would take the phone out of the hotel room so that I couldn't call room service. Or if there was fruit in my room, they would take it out because that's extra sugar. Like, we're not talking about brownies and cookies and candies and stuff like that. It's like, it was fruit."
And in a particularly disturbing anecdote, Demi talked about not being allowed to have cake on her birthday:
And, for many years, I didn't even have a birthday cake. I had a watermelon cake, where you cut your watermelon into the shape of a cake and then you put fat-free whipped cream on top. And that was your cake. And for years I did that, and it kind of became this ongoing joke, but I just really wanted birthday cake.
