Demi Lovato has remained relatively quiet over the past few weeks.
She hasn't released any new music. She hasn't been spotted out in public much. She hasn't posted any cryptic or particularly interesting messages on social media.
But now we know why.
Now we understand that Lovato simply wanted to build up an air of anticipation for what she just unleashed on unsuspecting followerrs.
And what she unleashed was this:
The most revealing Instagram photo in the history of her account.
We're not exaggerating.
The 24-year old singer stunned fans on Thursday by sharing a photo of herself in a beaded one-piece, something that can only be described as a "catsuit," which features a plunging neckline and strategic black beading.
How strategic? If it weren't there, we'd see ALL of Demi's goodies.
The artist paired this skintight suit with patent pumps and tousled waves.
Simply put, she looks amazing.
Lovato did not include a caption with the sizzling (and we mean SIZZLING) snapshot because, really, what is there to say?!?
"Slay mum," one wrote clearly impressed Internet user, while another added:
"Hot damn! You are perfect."
And yet another tagged a friend and asked, "you see?!? Beautiful AF."
The almost X-rated photo has already garnered close to 1.5 million Likes. And it's easy to see why.
Lovato made her romance with Luke Rockhold Instagram official in November when she posted a picture (below) of herself and the UFC fighter out and above, seated side-by-side and looking very cozy.
About six months earlier, Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama shocked everyone when they ended their six-year long relationship.
But what's most impressive about Lovato's racy image above is how it is representative of how far the artist has come.
As she isn't afraid to talk about in public, Demi spent many months in rehab in 2010. She entered the facility due to drug and alcohol problems, but also due to an eating disorder.
Lovato also cut herself back in the day due to a severe lack of self-confident.
There's simply no way the teenage Demi Lovato ever would have seen herself posing for this kind of picture.
Having arrived at a place of happiness and confidence, Lovato has used her platform to send as many positive messages about one's body image as she can.
“Regardless of what society tells you these days… You don’t have to have a thigh gap to be beautiful," Lovato wrote as a caption, for example, to THIS BIKINI SELFIE awhile back.
"It is possible to love your body the way it is. #fitness #health #acceptance #selflove," she added at the time.
In an old interview with Glam Belleza Latina magazine, the stars also said she used to “tried to conform to what everyone thinks is beautiful."
"I no longer look at my body and think, ‘Oh my gosh, I have such a fat butt’ or ‘I hate my thighs," she said at the time.
"On some days I don’t love them. But, you know, that’s one of the things that makes me me.
We love Demi Lovato.
You keep doing you, girl. And, based on that photo, we know a bunch of guys who would LOVE to do you, if you catch our sexual drift.
