Selena Gomez has recently confessed to a lie that she previously stated: body-shaming doesn’t bother her. The singer admitted that she used to cry her eyes out after reading hurtful comments about her weight on social media.

Gomez said that she pretended not to be affected by body-shaming comments to protect other people who were experiencing the same thing. She also expressed her thoughts on how unfair it is to shame people for their appearance, who they are, or who they love.

Selena was previously diagnosed with lupus in 2014, which has several side effects, including weight gain. Gomez revealed that she was body-shamed for gaining weight because of her condition.

“I was being shamed for gaining weight because of my lupus.”


The “Lose You to Love Me” singer called out body shamers last year, stating that being skinny wasn’t worth denying oneself of their favorite foods. She emphasized that no matter what she did, people would still criticize her appearance, so she decided to accept herself the way she is.

“People bitch about [my weight] anyway. Bitch, I am perfect the way I am.”

Gomez’s confession about her struggles with body-shaming has received praise and support from fans and fellow celebrities. Many have also shared their own experiences with body image and the impact of social media on their mental health.
