Demi Lovato Opens Up About Body Image In An Inspiring Instagram Post

In the wake of this year's MTV Video Music Awards, Demi Lovato took to Instagram to share an inspiring message about body struggles.

On Monday, Aug. 25, the star posted a side-by-side image of four of her recent VMA outfits with an accompanying note:

"This picture makes me feel so many mixed emotions.. I remember the day I wore the dress in the very first picture. I remember asking for spanx to flatten my stomach because I use to feel so heavy and 'fat,'" the star wrote. "Now looking at this picture, you can clearly see my hip bones. It makes me sad because I wasted so many years ashamed of my body when I could've been living the happy and healthy life I live today."

"It TRULY just goes to show you that your perceptions can lie to you," she continued. "OR they can make you learn to enjoy life. Fortunately looking at the picture of myself in the red dress yesterday, I not only feel so grateful for the love and support I've had from fans, friends and family, but... I also feel.. beautiful. I'm so excited to live my life the way I deserve to and to the complete fullest. Thank you guys once again.. I'm so thankful for my Lovatics. I love you... And never forget that staying strong is worth it."

Lovato attended treatment for eating disorders and cutting back in 2010, and has since become one of the most outspoken celebrity advocates for changing the way we think and talk about bodies in our culture.

"Most models are thinner than 98 percent of Americans," she tweeted in 2012 in support of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. "Instead of trying to change our bodies, how about we try to change our culture?"

Jennifer Aniston Says Her 'Value As A Woman' Has Nothing To Do With Having Children

Too often childfree women are met with quite a bit of unsolicited commentary on their life choices. Jennifer Aniston knows this all too well.

In an interview with Carson Daly for the Today Show published this morning, Aniston discussed her personal experience as a childfree woman and the constant questioning she is subjected to because of it.

Daly referenced the 45-year-old's interview with Gloria Steinem this past February at the MAKERS conference where Aniston said, "Being a woman, your value and worth is associated with your marital status or whether or not you've procreated."

Aniston expanded on this idea, telling Daly:
I don't have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and.. if they're not checked, then I've failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child.

Aniston went on to admit that she truly has no idea why people care so much about her prospects of having children. "I've birthed a lot of things," she told Daly. "I feel like I've mothered many things and I don't think it's fair to put that pressure [of having children] on people."

Sounds about right to us.

Watch the entire interview below:

Britney Spears Makes Terminally Ill Fan's Dream A Reality, We Fall For Her One More Time

You don't have to be a Britney fan to admire what the princess of pop did for this terminally ill man.

Cory Moraw of Longview, Texas, has battled a number of health problems. In addition to the genetic disorder he was born with, DiGeorge syndrome -- which affects the immune system -- and diabetes, Moraw was also recently diagnosed with a severe case of cirrhosis of the liver, according to the fundraising page his family set up for him. Doctors have given the 28-year-old between one to five years to live. As his health has declined, family members said that Moraw has become less active but he was eager to attend a Britney Spears concert.

"Most of all Cory loves Britney Spears. If ever there was a No. 1 Britney fan, it would hands-down HAVE to be Cory," his step-sister, Erica, wrote on the fundraising page. "There is only one thing in this world that Cory would feel like doing ... that would be to see Britney Spears LIVE."

News of Moraw's wish eventually spread to the pop star herself, and her camp surprised the fan and his family with first-class plane tickets and VIP passes to her Las Vegas concert, according to KLTV. Last week, Moraw met the pop star and attended her show.

"Getting to see him that happy was just priceless. You couldn't have asked for anything better than him meeting her," Janet Russom, Moraw's mother, told KLTV.

After the show, Moraw posted some photos with the star on his Facebook page, and reported that his "idol and role model" was now his "new BFF."

The family says they were impressed with the singer's kindness. Moraw's step-sister, Erica, who came along for the show, said she was charmed by the star, posting on Twitter, "She's fantastic. #DreamsComeTrue."

While Moraw and his family say they were honored to meet the superstar, they were not the only ones touched by the encounter.

"[Britney] just hugged him and she was like, 'Oh, Cory, thank you for letting me meet you.' I was like, that is just so cool that she said it that way," Russom told KLTV.

Rihanna Slips Into A Bikini After Closing Out Monster Tour, Casually Hangs On A Yacht

After finishing her Monster Tour with Eminem on Saturday, Rihanna appears to be getting some much deserved R&R. The singer took to Twitter on Tuesday, August 26, to share a snap from her beachside vacation. In the image, Rihanna hangs on a yacht in a fierce black bikini, with loose beach waves rolling down past her shoulders.

The next day, the singer posted another image from the trip, this time in more formal wear.

Girl clearly knows how to have a good time.

Here Is What A Mashup Of Scarlett Johansson And Jennifer Lawrence Looks Like

If you ever wondered what Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence would look like if they morphed into one person, now you know.

Movie Pilot is behind the mashup of Johansson and Lawrence. The site posted the photo on Aug. 18 and used Lawrence's "American Hustle" movie poster as the base. Jezbel dubbed the image "the most beautiful woman you've never seen."

The final result, which went viral on Reddit Sunday, kind of just looks like Johansson dressed as Rosalyn Rosenfeld.


Pat O'Brien Explains Why So Many Celebrities Aren't Truly Happy (VIDEO)

Before his public downfall in 2005, Pat O'Brien seemed like the type of celebrity who had it all together. He was a well-liked entertainment news anchor on "The Insider," he routinely rubbed elbows with stars like Angelina Jolie and Kevin Costner, and he took full advantage of the numerous perks his celebrity status provided. He also drank -- a lot.

In private, O'Brien frequently turned to alcohol to help fill a void that remained hidden from the outside world. Even on the last day he ever drank, O'Brien admits he went through 14 bottles of wine, an amount Oprah calls "inconceivable" during their sit-down for "Oprah: Where Are They Now?"

Still, O'Brien hadn't considered himself an alcoholic. No one else did either; to the public, he was at the top of his game with nothing to complain about. The reality, he says, was much more of an internal struggle.

"The thing about 'fame' is that we are people who love to be loved by strangers," O'Brien tells Oprah. "We can't get enough... You want more, more, more. The only number you have is 'more.'"

This insatiable thirst for adoration becomes a void in which many celebrities find themselves lost, battling against unhappiness. As O'Brien sees it, there are far more unhappy stars than happy. "I can name, out of all of them, 10 really happy ones," he says.

The truly happy celebrities have figured out something very important about not just their star status, but life in general.

"I wake up every morning now and I look in the mirror, and I say, 'I want to be the person that I want to be today. Not who they want me to be,'" he explains, gesturing toward the camera. "I work for that every day."

Oprah agrees, but wonders how a man like O'Brien lacked the self-awareness that often accompanies that longer life experience. Ego, he tells her.

"[I was] full of myself... A lot of people are like that," O'Brien says. "But, thank God I figured it out. I'm so grateful for all that."

"Oprah: Where Are They Now?" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

'Pretty Little Liars' Fatal Finale Says Goodbye To One Huge Character

"Pretty Little Liars" has been teasing one big death all summer, and on Tuesday, during its "Fatal Finale," the show killed off one of its most divisive characters. SPOILERS AHEAD!

As many fans predicted, Mona Vanderwal, the original A, didn't make it out alive. She was seemingly murdered in her home by an unknown blonde girl -- we have our guesses! -- after an hour of switching sides for good. In the beginning of the episode, the liars teamed up with Mona after Alison convinced Mona's A-team to join her "army." There was an undercover trip to Radley, a car accident that injured Toby and a lot of excitement about Christmas decorations.

Most of summer finale revolved around finding out more information on Bethany, who was buried alive by Melissa -- we found that out last week -- after she thought Bethany was Alison. The snooping worked, and the two girls' connection was revealed: Bethany's father was having an affair with Mrs. DiLaurentis and the two girls knew each other. Turns out, Alison lured Bethany to Rosewood because she was jealous and wanted to kill her. Okay, sure. We'll buy this for now. Also, Rosewood's finest arrested Spencer for Bethany's murder after Alison gave a cryptic lie detector test.


But back to Mona's death: Often in "Pretty Little Liars" land, nothing is as it seems. Sure, we saw a blood-spattered house and Mona's cold dead body wrapped in sheets, eyes wide open, but do we believe the show? Is Mona really dead for good? Janel Parrish, who plays Mona, recently told Cosmopolitan, "Ultimately when people die in Rosewood, sometimes they stay dead. This person is dead." Parrish also confirmed that she'll appear on the show next season in flashbacks.

Executive producer Marlene King told The Hollywood Reporter that the death had been planned for "more than a year." "Fans are going to be left speechless," she said earlier in the summer.

"Pretty Little Liars" returns for a holiday-themed episode entitled "How The 'A' Stole Christmas" later this year. Hopefully Spencer will be out of jail by then.

Practically All Of Hollywood Sang Goodbye To 'Chelsea Lately' On Its Final Episode

Forget the VMAs and the Emmys. The final episode of "Chelsea Lately" looks like the most star-studded party of the year.

Practically all of Hollywood joined together on Aug. 26 to sing host Chelsea Handler a hilarious goodbye song. There are seriously too many celebrities to count, but here's an obligatory name-drop to prove our point: Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Sandra Bullock, Gerard Butler, Vanessa Hudgens, Wiz Khalifa, Alanis Morissette, Melissa McCarthy, Dave Grohl ... do you believe us yet?

Even the Kardashian Klan, who were not there for obvious reasons, got a shout out. Avril Lavigne sang in her solo line, "She can't go on faking every day that Chelsea cares about Kim and Kanye," referencing when Handler said that having to report on the Kardashians was part of her decision to leave the network.

Tim Gunn followed up with, "She's done with 'Teen Moms' and Justin Bieber too."

Wonder how Selena Gomez took that last line.
