Demi Lovato has said she faced her "biggest fear" by sharing an unedited picture of herself in a bikini.

The pop star declared the picture "cellulit" and shared with fans how difficult it had been for her to post an image without editing it.

The 27-year-old wrote: "This is my biggest fear. A photo of me in a bikini unedited. And guess what, it's CELLULIT!!!!

"I'm just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited - and I hate that I did that but it's the truth) so that others think I'm THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it's just not me.

"This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else's standards.

"So here's me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day.

"It's such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet s***.

"Anyway, here's me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I'm working on an anthem..
