Watch: Demi Lovato Poses in Underwear for "Cosmo" Cover

Demi Lovato won't apologize for her new cover of Cosmopolitan because, well, she has no reason to be sorry.

The "Cool For Summer" singer stuns in a slinky silver dress.

However, just as the mag was being released, some critics called for it be hidden on the newsstands because they think the magazine is too NSFW.

"It took so much for me to get a place where I would feel comfortable enough to do that," Lovato told me exclusively last night at Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 launch event in West Hollywood. "If anything, it's showing all of my fans who know my story and my journey that I've gone from hating every inch of my body to doing a photo shoot in my underwear in front of the entire world. That's more of statement to me than just looking sexy on a magazine cover.

"It's so important for me to show people that," she added.

Go, Demi!

And if you don't like the magazine, Lovato said, "Watch your damn kids! You don't want them reading the magazine? Watch your kids!"

Lovato is also going to be celebrating her 23rd birthday tomorrow.

"I kind of have been so busy that I'm sort of looking forward to having a solid day off," she said. "I might have a little get together with my closest friends and then maybe at some point, having a dinner. No parties. I'm just wanting to chill."

But she did say she wouldn't be indulging on cake on the big day because she's getting ready for a secret project. "I have something I have to train for," Lovato teased. "So I don't want to have a birthday party until I could f--king eat birthday cake."
