Demi Lovato Sounds Off On Fiber One Bars Commercial

Demi Lovato sounded off after seeing a commercial for Fiber One bars to her Twitter followers (@ddlovato) moments ago. The 18-year-old, who recently sought help for an eating disorder, didn’t like the tagline of the General Mills product. She writes:

Just saw a commercial for Fiber-One bars.. Their slogan literally was “Hungry, no. Results, yes.” Seriously.. What are we teaching people by

saying that? Not to eat to see results? Really disappointed. Yes losing weight for some people can be healthy, but it’s commercials like

that, that led me into thinking that not eating is okay. It’s NOT. There’s too much pressure on people these days to lose weight..

Not okay.. #realtalk.

Demi Lovato checked in with her Twitter followers (@ddlovato) on Monday (May 16) after posting an image of herself wearing a bikini. The singer and actress, who recently stepped back into the public eye after ending a rehab stint seeking help for “emotional and physical issues”, writes:

I’ve been working so hard to get healthy and fit.. I can’t believe I’m about to do this but I’m so excited.. Here’s my bikini time body!

I never thought I’d ever feel confident enough to ever to that. I’m excited how far I’ve come since being completely ashamed of my body..

I want any girl/guy out there who struggles with body image or confidence to know that it IS possible to find peace with yourself.

It hasn’t been easy, but it starts with a commitment to yourself.. Your mind.. And your soul. And trust me, I’m still working at it!! Haha

Demi Lovato Angry Over Tweet Equating Bipolar To Being “Psycho”

Demi Lovato lashed out at a Twitter user named Michael Crook who commented, “So @ddlovato has admitted she’s bipolar. That, my fine feathered friends, is another word for ‘psycho’.” The 18-year-old said:

@michael_crook for an “author” an a “blogger”, that’s a pretty ignorant thing to say. Know your facts before you write them.

I can’t stand it when people make fun of the diseases so many people struggle from. Not something to joke about.

Also.. One more thing.. ALONG with making fun of illnesses or diseases, doing it over the internet only makes you more of a coward. Not to..

mention now you’ve performed the act of cyber-bullying. Something that is equally as wrong and unacceptable.. #NOH8 RT!!!
