Wilmer Valderrama wants the world to know he supports his girlfriend Demi Lovato no matter what.
The Minority Report star went on Fox 411 recently to promote his new TV show. But while on air, he went out of his way to gush over his girlfriend of 4 years.
“We have been very supportive of one another and she has been super supportive of what I’ve been doing,” the former That 70’s Show star said. His support now includes Demi’s recent slam of a movement to cover up Cosmopolitan on store shelves.
Lovato was photographed for the September cover and she’s none too pleased that some stores may now be forced to hide the cover shot inside a plastic wrapping – much like pornography magazines. Demi took to Instagram to voice her complaints, as reported by E! Online.
“What these individuals protesting don’t understand is that for the first time in a long time I feel incredibly EMPOWERED and the MOST BEAUTIFUL I’ve ever felt on this magazine. It’s so liberating to be able to show the world how confident a woman can be once she learns to love herself. It took soul searching and a bit of time before i learned to embrace my body therefore I could not have been more excited to do this shoot. I think what’s more important is showing women there’s NOTHING WRONG with embracing their bodies and sexuality. I am confident in my own skin and A PROUD @COSMOPOLITAN COVER GIRL!”
Demi ended her rant with the simple hastag “#unwrapmycosmo.”
The hubbub first began, according to the NY Post, when heiress Victoria Hearst partnered with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation in its fight to keep Cosmopolitan‘s cover lines under wraps because they were deemed “too sexy” to be viewed by children.
“Nothing spooky here… God told me to work to get Cosmo out of the hands of children, so that’s what I am doing,” she told Media Ink on Tuesday. “It was His still, small voice in my heart and soul.”
The irony of it all is that Victoria is the sister of Patty Hearst – the actual publisher of Cosmopolitan.
This, of course, isn’t the first time a celebrity has taken to Instagram to rally around an issue involving women, their sexuality, and how they’re dealt with in the media. Pop star Ariana Grande recently took to the social media platform to acknowledge a growing double standard in how women are reported on by the media.
