Los Angeles: Singer-actress Demi Lovato used to wear a jacket on stage because she was embarrassed by the size of her arms.
The 22-year-old spent three-months in treatment for bulimia, a self-harming disorder and drug abuse in 2010, and has revealed that her condition even influenced her on-stage attire, reports contactmusic.com.
“I recently saw pictures from my first tour, and I spent that whole summer performing in the heat in a red leather jacket because I was ashamed to show my arms. And that was when I was 105 pounds!” Fitness magazine quoted Lovato as saying.
The “Heart Attack” hitmaker, who was performed at her Neon Lights Tour, which ended May 17 this year, says she's got a renewed sense of self-confidence about her on-stage appearance.
“This tour, I've had the confidence to show my arms at every single concert. It may seem like a small thing, but for me, that's huge,” she added.
