Singer Demi Lovato is delighted Amy Schumer has challenged “society’s twisted views” of perfection together with her naked Pirelli calendar picture.
The Trainwreck actress is just about the famous faces featured from the 2016 edition from the iconic year planner, along with her monochrome shot, she posed over a stool, wearing merely a pair of knickers and high heels, while holding coffee.
The image, shot by revered photographer Annie Leibovitz, evoked a large reaction through the public, and high praise from Schumer’s peers, including 23-year-old Demi.
The singer, who’s battled body image issues the life, believes Amy truly represents the content she is trying to find across from the lyrics to her songs on hit new album Confident.
“This is an ideal example of a #CONFIDENT woman having a giant s**t on society’s twisted views of the perfection is,” she wrote on Instagram on Tuesday (01Dec15) alongside the look of Schumer baring all. “I wrote Confident with women like her (men too) and examples in this way in mind.
“The attitude captured within this photo is brave, sexy and inspiring but a majority of importantly REAL!!!! F**k yeah @amyschumer… Women around the globe thank you for this. Especially me.”
Demi spent time in rehab next year and 2012, battling an eating disorder as well as other body-image related problems, but she bounced returning to become a mental health campaigner and confident women’s rights activist.
The Confident sheet music singer even posed nude herself throughout a photoshoot with Vanity Fair in October (15), and insisted the revealing shots of her must not be retouched.
“The roughest part of that photoshoot for me personally was going inside buff without the need of Photoshop,” she told Access Hollywood.
“There were times where I was exploring the pictures while using photographer anf the husband would say, ‘Oh, we can easily fix that,’ and I was like, ‘No, we can not. We cannot use Photoshop in this particular shoot’.
“Of course it’s awkward, however, if I will think about the content, when I would begin to think about the amount of people this could inspire, I got more leisurely doing it.”
