Demi Lovato has had such an amazing personal journey and it's given her plenty of perspective that, lucky for fans, she's happy to share. We were in love with her style at the recent MTV Video Music Awards and she was definitely feeling confident about her cleavage baring, sexy red dress.

Demi took to Instagram to give a roundup of her past VMA looks and said she had "mixed emotions" and felt "sad."

She explained, "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.' 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."

Demi continued: "It TRULY just goes to show you that your perceptions can lie to you. 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."
