Demi Lovato isn't shy about hot selfies, but there are certain angles and parts of her body that she's been conspicuously shy about putting on display.
Until now, that is.
We've seen Demi Lovato go topless before, so you might be wondering what sort of selfie could cover new territory. Well, wonder no more!
Demi captioned the photo -- which is below -- with a message explaining why it's so unusual for us to see her abdomen.
"I rarely post pics with my belly button showing because I'm normally insecure about showing my full stomach."
As you'll see in the photo, the "Confident" singer should be proud of her incredibly hot body.
(But we'll get to the "insecurities" thing in a moment)
"But I've been working really hard."
Exercise can require a lot of time and effort, but hard work can really pay off.
And it clearly has, as you're about to see.
"And thanks to @d.leith and his yummy food with @lockhartandleith I've been seeing progress so I thought I'd post this cause I'm feeling myself right now!!"
Sometimes you have to seize upon the moment when you're feeling up to it to share a photo if you're nervous.
Demi also gives a shout-out to the people who helped her work out.
"Also can't forget the best gym in the world @unbreakableperformance and my trainers @fatenginethatdoes & @itskimglass."
You can't argue with these results:
Honestly, and not that she needs to compete against herself ...
But this photo puts that pic of Demi Lovato's huge unstoppable boobs to shame.
Don't get us wrong, because you'd have a hard time finding any photo of her that doesn't look great.
But in this one, we see flat, amazing abs and clear, gorgeous sex lines -- you know, those lines where your abs meet your hips.
They're called sex lines because they're sexy as hell, but also because they're literally lines that draw the gaze to your crotch.
Anyway, Demi is looking incredible here.
And also making us long for a return of the fashion trend of ultra-low rider jeans.
No, low-waisted jeans don't frame butts as well as a lot of today's jeans.
But who needs to show off their butt when they're packing abs like Demi's?!
As for her insecurities -- we said that we'd talk about that -- we need to understand that insecurities don't have to make sense.
As a general rule, you wouldn't think that a young, hot celebrity whose new song, "Sorry Not Sorry," has been making waves for the past month, would have reasons for insecurity.
But it's kind of like depression or anxiety -- depressed people don't have to be depressed about something any more than a sick person has a fever about something.
To be fair, insecurities aren't a mental illness, but they don't happen on the same level to quite everyone.
People with the most conventionally attractive bodies imaginable can be riddled with insecurities, and people considered overweight or otherwise outside of what society considers to be "pretty" can be incredible confident.
Insecurities are generally something to overcome, and Demi deserves praise for tackling hers head-on.
Plus, Demi Lovato deserves thanks from everyone who enjoyed that photo.
And from everyone who continues to enjoy her many, many gorgeous photos.
We know that she's been working out for years, including taking boxing and other self-defense techniques.
(So if you ever do those "the last singer you've been listening to is on your squad for the zombie apocalypse" things, hope that you've been listening to Demi)
Keep it up, girl.
