Demi Lovato Loves New Barbie, Realistic Rear End

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Demi Lovato may be too old to play with dolls.

But she isn't too old to gush over them.

Following a series of Tweets in which Lovato complained to Mattel about the unrealistic dimensions of Barbie and how her slight figure might have a negative effect on young girls, artist Nickolay Lamm has given the icon a makeover.

Demi Loves Barbie

He used CDC measurements of how an average 19-year old woman would look - shorter in stature, with a curvy body and flat feet - and Lovato is a HUGE fan.

"That new @barbie’s got BACK!!!!! Hahahaha #bootybootybootyboottrockineverywhere” Lovato Tweeted of the doll, adding that she is "AWESOME."

Demi, of course, has been very open about her history of eating disorders and has been an advocate for young women with self-esteem issues across the board.

She recently admitted that she was suicidal at the age of 7.

And now, thanks to Lovato's efforts, perhaps future 7-year olds will have their confidence restored over the sight of a plumper Barbie doll.

I HATE the new barbie. She's fat. My barbie growing up was never fat. Thats why I loved her I never wanted to be her. It was like another world for me when I was 5 that I could control. But this fake ass bitch probably had something to do to make barbie fat. You lovatics can say wat you want but she never ever had an eating disorder. Look up mary kate olsen. Back in 2004 she was bulimic. She was THIN not like demi. Demi still looks the same. She looks just like she did when she was touring with joe. Maybe a lb more but thats it. If she had an eating disorder she wouldn't look the way she did back in 2009 2010 she'd be thin not fat. So then you could see her bones. She just couldnt handle being on tour with her ex and his gf. Simple and truth and thats probably why she was cutting herself to. Cause she didnt know who to go to with the pain she just lost her best friend that used her. It all makes since

@Amanda: First off, an eating disorder is an illness, not a body type. The body types of people with eating disorders vary immensely. Second, this Barbie doll is in no way fat. You have a warped sense of fat and thin if you honestly believe that, probably because you played with Barbie dolls. Just because they didn't have an impact on your own self-esteem and body image doesn't mean it's the same for all children who at with them. Many young children wonder why they don't look like Barbie, and I think that if this reaches stores, it is a step in the right direction.

Uhhhhh. Yes she did. She even admitted it. She cut herself because of personal problems and she said her brake up with Joe was a big part of it. And when she found out he was dating Ashley Greene, she flipped. Get YOUR facts. Everything that @amanda said was true. Demi was never really thin. I never understood why she ever said she had an eating disorder when she has never even been super thin. Not even now. She's not fat, but she was never real skinny.

That rear end is far from realistic. It's its up high and has no cellulite... Barbies will always be unrealistic. And how will this make girls who have a flat butt feel? Even worse. You will never please everyone. They should have just left her be. This one looks ridiculous.

you're kidding me right? the old original barbie forced children into thinking that a super tall extra thin woman is what's "normal and beautiful" also, having an eating disorder is NOT all about being underweight. it's about the mind set. demi lovato had and HAS a beautiful body, only ignorant pricks like you wouldn't see this. and people like you are what caused her into thinking that she's fat. anorexia and bulimia is all about having a morphed body image. someone having the average weight thinking they're fat as a cow. the new barbie sets new and more realistic standards. showing girls that it's ok to not be a tooth pick. honestly, people like you make me sick to my stomach.
