Demi Lovato has shown off her body insecurities in an effort to encourage people to love themselves.

The 25-year-old singer has posted a series of videos on her Instagram Story which show off the stretch marks on her stomach and cellulite on her thighs, as she insists she still ''loves herself'' despite her insecurities, and urged her followers to do the same.

Text added to clips read: ''STRETCH MARKS AND EXTRA FAT.. AND YET I STILL LOVE MYSELF

''CELLULITE AND YET I STILL LOVE MYSELF

''The boomerang smoothed out my legs. The point is, I have cellulite just like the other 93% of women do. What you see on Instagram isn't always what it seems to be. Let's embrace our real selves. #iloveme

''NO THIGH GAP FOR ME AND YET I STILL LOVE MYSELF (sic)''

It comes after the 'Sorry Not Sorry' singer previously slammed diet culture in society as ''frustrating and sad'', as she believes people are constantly being told they're not ''thin enough''.

She wrote on Twitter: ''It's so frustrating and sad how strong the #dietculture in our society is. It's constantly telling us we're not thin enough no matter what. You are beautiful no matter what anyone says. (sic)''

Demi has given up dieting herself, and has previously claimed she won't be ''food shaming'' herself any more.

She shared: ''Feeling gross today at a photo shoot but I'm choosing to accept what I see because I love myself for who I am and your love and support gets me through moments like this. if you're struggling as well, don't forget.. if I can do it, you can too! ... No longer depriving myself of treats (in moderation) and I'm not gonna lie, I put on a couple lbs since I've given up dieting BUT I've given up the chronic stress of what I eat because I don't want to set that example for my fans. No more food shaming myself!! (sic)''
