Demi Lovato is gearing up for one of the biggest comebacks of the year, having already impressed fans after gracing the Grammys stage to perform her latest single, “Anyone.”

And while she’s already shared that her struggles with substance abuse and body issues will be heard on her upcoming album, the pop star also recently sat down for an interview on Ashley Graham's podcast to discuss self-confidence.

According to Demi, through the help of seeing a therapist, the singer realized how much time and attention she had placed on perfecting her body when what she should have simply focused on what mattered the most - remaining healthy.

“I have a bunch of people that I work with in the recovery aspect of my life, one of them is a dietician, one of them is a therapist,” Demi said during the taping of the Pretty Big Deal podcast.

Because of her ongoing discussions with her therapist, Lovato came to the understanding that she’d been making herself feel depressed just by how she had viewed herself when looking in the mirror.

And though she'd love to tell fans that she's finally happy with how she looks, Demi says she's working on bettering her ways one step at a time.

“Now when I look in the mirror and I start to have a negative thought, I don’t stop and say, ‘No, you’re beautiful, you’re gorgeous, I love you, you’re perfect the way you are.’ Because I don’t believe that.”

Instead, the “Heart Attack” star prefers to tell herself: “You’re healthy and I accept you.” That way, Demi is not comparing herself to what she may have looked like in the past, regardless or thinner or bigger. All that matters to her at this point is that she's healthy.

Body Confidence Remains Her Weakness

As silly as it might sound -given her incredible figure - Lovato openly admitted that she’s not “super confident” when it comes to her body, but thanks through the help she’s gotten over the past two years, Demi doesn’t think negatively about herself the way that she used to.

In December, the 27-year-old confirmed she’d been busy working on her seventh studio album, just months after signing a new management deal with Scooter Braun.

But she remained silent on when fans could expect new music, only going on to mention that the next time fans would hear from her, it would be with the news that she's dropping a new song.

She did exactly that in January when she released her well-received ballad titled "Anyone."

Braun, who also manages Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, is preparing Demi for an incredible comeback, which has already seen her perform at the Grammys before going on to give her rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl LIV.

There’s no official release date for Demi Lovato’s new album just yet, but it’s definitely said to be coming later this year. Her forthcoming record will be her first since 2017's "Tell Me You Love Me," which included the Billboard smash hit, "Sorry Not Sorry."
