Demi Lovato talks eating disorders/body image, we agree

The showbiz world needs more Demi Lovatos, we reckon.

The teenager was on ITV1's Daybreak this morning and she had a few wise words to say about the whole body image discussion.

Having battled an eating disorder herself, the American singer went on a rant about how the television and movie worlds make girls feel bad about their bodies.

She said: "I feel as if television and movies are now glorifying an unhealthy body image which puts a lot of pressure on young girls — and especially girls that are growing up and trying to find themselves.

"A lot of girls who are young are insecure, and they look to the media and what they see in magazines and everything else to see what they should look like. And I think that the film industry and the television industry should take more responsibility."

We couldn't agree more Demi. STOP. WITH. THE. BIKINI. SHOTS.

We reckon Demi Lovato has a serious point/Wenn

The Disney star went on to open up about her own struggle with food, claiming it started when she was very young.

She said: "A lot of people ask me, 'Do you think it's because you started in the industry so young, or is it the pressures of being in this industry?'

"And I say 'no' because my problems were starting when I was 12-years-old, 11-years-old. I was bullied when I was 12, and that's when I got really sick and so it's been going on for a quite a while now, but finally I've gotten help."

And sked if she had any advice for young girls going through similar experiences the star said: "What I have to say to them is you have to — as much as it hurts when you're being bullied - always rise above it and also vocalise what's going on.

"You can't keep it inside. It's really dangerous to let your emotions bottle up or to let nobody know what's going on - you should really tell someone."

Keep speaking Demi. We reckon you're a great role model #justsaying
