Kim Kardashian's Internet-breaking body is also inspirational: Demi Lovato has revealed that Kardashian helped her overcome her personal body issues when she rose to fame, and learn to accept her curves.

"When I was growing up, at the kind of age where your body starts changing and you want to be cool, it was in that era of when very, very, very thin people were the popular people in Hollywood, so that’s what I had to look up to," Lovato said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in an episode set to air Wednesday (via Us Weekly). The singer famously overcame an eating disorder at the beginning of her career and has long been an advocate of self-love and anti-body shaming.

"When the Kardashians came on the scene, that was the first time that I really associated curves with beauty, and it was just so new to me," Lovato continued. "I remember thinking, 'Wow, that’s so cool!' And even in a time when I was still struggling with food, I was able to look at Kim’s curves and be like, 'I should really be proud of my curves.'"

Lovato released her most confident album, titled Confident, last year. Click here to watch another Ellen highlight--yesterday's exclusive premiere of the Fuller House trailer.
