Lovato visited the comment section of his Instagram post to weigh in on the depiction.

“Is that how my boobs should look?” Demi asked. “It’s gorgeous, but that’s not my body,” she added, followed by a concerned emoji.

The artist acknowledged Lovato’s comments, and explained his rationale: “If I make your waist slimmer and your boobs bigger to accentuate the fact that I drew you as a mermaid, a mythological creature, doesn’t mean I say that you should look like that or all girls should look like that,” he explained. “That’s how I imagine mermaids. I worked a lot on that drawing and I was proud of it, but not anymore.”
