Model Daisy Lowe: “I have been unable to get out of bed because I have felt so insecure”

On her insecurities and her fluctuating weight:

‘Every day we’re shown images about the perfect body and what it should be – but we just have the ones that we live in. I think feeling insecure can be completely crippling. I have had times in my life when I have been unable to get out of bed because I have felt so insecure. But I think the most important lesson I’ve learned is that you have only one body, so you might as well enjoy it. My weight yo-yos so much. It always has. I am now a bit ­trimmer because I’ve been dancing four hours a day.’

… says 27 year-old Daisy, who is said to weigh 140 lbs at 5’9”.

Size 12 US model Iskra Lawrence stars in Aerie’s latest campaign, where beauties of different sizes are unedited – and recently, the blonde model opened up about a past experience that destroyed her confidence:

‘I tested with a photographer about a year ago and loved the pictures at the shoot. He sent me the pictures two weeks after and he retouched the hell out of them. I said to him, “I don’t feel like I can use these. Can you send me the raw files?” and he was like, “No, I’m not comfortable with that, and I was kinda of like, “Oh OK, so you don’t think I’m good enough unretouched?” After so many years of being rejected and having my body scrutinized…. for Aerie to come along and basically say, “we accept you, we don’t care about your size.” To see those pictures on a Times Square billboard and they were completely unretouched, I just was like, “Wow. I finally feel good enough!

… says Iskra.

Demi Lovato: “I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body”

Demi Lovato: “I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body”

demiglamour-741x1024

Demi Lovato recently opened up to Glamour Magazine about body image, the lack of normal bodies in Taylor Swift’s squad and feminism:

On the negative response to her “Body Say” images:

You don’t say anything, because you can never win. Whether they’re saying that you’re ugly, or that you’re a whore, or that you’re a bad role model, or something else, you’re never gonna win.

On exploring sexuality in her image and music:

We live in an imbalanced society when it comes to encouraging male sexuality and discouraging female sexuality. In 20 years I hope we’ll look back like, Wow, that’s how it used to be.

Question: You’ve said before, in regard to Taylor Swift, “Don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work.” How do you see yourself doing the work?

Just speaking out. I’m not afraid to talk about the fact that women get paid less than men in the United States and how unfair that is. Talking about it at all is doing the work. And I think every woman does her part in some way. But I think in certain situations, certain people could be doing more if they’re going to claim that as part of their brand. To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don’t see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body. It’s kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it’s not real.

Question: Well, there are many kinds of “normal” bodies. I think what you’re getting at is there’s just one type of body in that squad.

It’s not realistic. And I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down, that’s not women’s empowerment. We all do things that aren’t, but I have to ask myself, Am I content with calling myself a feminist? Yes, because I speak out.

Question: Do things besides a busy schedule still trigger you?

Yeah, of course. Seeing cocaine in movies. I’ve never watched The Wolf of Wall Street. I can’t. I don’t like to go out to clubs, because I find myself seeing remnants of drugs in the bathroom. I did the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special, and being surrounded by supermodels’ bodies was triggering to me. I remember asking, “How do you maintain your figure?” Some said, “I really have to work at it.” Others said, “It’s genetics.” It was interesting to hear that it wasn’t through unhealthy [behaviors]. It was a great learning experience. I still felt sexy, having a different body than these women. I had Wilmer there, who loved my curves—that helped.

Taylor Swift’s squad that lacks normal bodies, according to Demi:

Gigi Hadid Talks About Becoming a Supermodel

On becoming an ‘Instagram supermodel’:

‘It’s weird, because it happened so naturally for me. I think Instagram started when I was a junior in high school. If you scroll to the bottom of my account, I still have pictures with 500 likes. And then it just happened to be the theme of our generation of models: the “social-media supermodel” or whatever they call it.’

… says Gigi.
