Demi Lovato: I Want My Own Barbie Doll — But It Must Be My Actual Body Type

Truth rating: 10


Demi Lovato wants her own Barbie doll — but only if it captures her real figure.

The singer, who’s openly discussed her lifelong struggle with body issues, took to Twitter on Monday to express her special birthday wish (although the big milestone isn’t for two months).

1 of my biggest dreams, having collected Barbies since I was a kid, is to have my own Barbie BUT with my actual body type.. Weight & height,” wrote Lovato.

She implored her fans to help make it happen, tweeting, “Lovatics!!! Blow up @BarbieStyle to make it happen!!!! That would be one dope 21st birthday!! Hahaha.”

Also, Barbie should make dolls with cellulite!!! Hahaha!!! After all, around 95% of ALL women have it!!!” added Lovato, who went on to retweet several of her followers’ supportive messages on the issue.

The “X Factor” judge has been an outspoken advocate for healthy portrayals of girls’ and women’s bodies in the media for quite some time.

Back in 2011, Lovato blasted The Disney Channel — her former employer — for airing a joke about eating disorders on “Shake It Up.”
