Demi Lovato didn't hold back this week.

On Wednesday, the 27-year-old singer joined "The Kelly Clarkson Show" via video. The two Texas natives hit on several topics during the ten-minute talk and seriously couldn't stop singing each other's praises.

Clarkson gave out the first compliment:

"I love how open you are about mental health because I have similar issues, and I've suffered from depression," the host said. "I think a lot of people, especially in the creative world or just from childhood, you've been trained to just keep going and you can handle it."

Clarkson, 38, brought up a shared pressure they face as female entertainers:

"Especially as a woman, it's like, 'Don't let them see you sweat.' I just love that you're open about that because not everybody's as vulnerable being like that. And I think it's helpful for your fans."

The "Confident" songstress gushed back to Clarkson, calling the first-ever "American Idol" winner the "first idol" she ever had as a kid.

The ball was handed off to Clarkson again, who laid some love on Lovato's latest song - her self-love anthem "I Love Me."

Demi Lovato's Instagram Edits Had Her Feeling Fake

"I love it," Kelly Clarkson said. "I was like, 'That was a really powerful message but cleverly done."

Lovato's upbeat "I Love Me" sounds more cheerful than it actually is - it's about "haters that live on the internet" and negative self-talk.

She wrote the song last year after feeling like a fraud.

"I just like the message. I felt like I wasn't authentic to people because I'd been editing pictures."

"I'd gone on a vacation to Bora Bora last year and I edited the bikini pictures and I posted them, the GRAMMY nominee admitted.

'I Felt Like I Was Catfishing Everybody,' Demi Lovato Says

"I got a bunch of likes, but it didn't feel good...I felt like I was catfishing everybody," Lovato says.

Lovato also says she's most worried about "Teenagers..[I] wouldn't be surprised if they didn't know what cellulite or stretch-marks look like until they pop up on their body and they have to Facetune it out of their pictures - because I'm doing it, and they see me doing it."

The "Sorry Not Sorry" star posted the edited pics in May 2019. She was in the studio a few months later when she fired off the unedited photo.

"It was that unedited bikini picture, and it just felt so good."

The Disney alum admitted two new things about her September smokehow: she had "a few crushes at the time," and she hoped they'd show up on Instagram.

"It was interesting to see that all of those crushes...actually liked that picture where all my cellulite was out and I wasn't touched up," she said.

"They were the ones I was trying to impress...I was trying to look hot for my crushes,"

Safe to say it worked. The unedited single snap raked in over 10 million likes, and the edited pics "only" got about 4 million likes per set.

In conclusion, Demi Lovato definitely knows how to set a thirst trap (but keep reading if you need more proof)
