People posting pictures on social media make other people feel bad because the pictures make it look like those people are perfect. Selena Gomez says that even celebrities feel this way sometimes.
Here at Bright Side, we want to share her journey and how she now embraces her body shape.
The story of how this came to be started with a different album cover.
Selena Gomez has spoken out about the disapproval she gets that she claims started in 2015. The situation became too much, so she decided to go to therapy to take care of her mental well-being.
“I fluctuate in my weight a lot.”
Selena has spoken about her struggles with lupus and kidney transplants. Both of these have had a big impact on her health and wellbeing. Selena recently released a new make-up line, ’Rare Beauty,’ she said in her interview with Cosmopolitan in 2020 “I fluctuate in my weight a lot,” then added that she had to learn to have thick skin at a pretty early stage in her life.
“I am happier, I am more present, I connect more with people.”
Selena decided to go offline after years of struggles. This was in 2017.
In 2019, Selena talked about how dangerous social media is and how scary it can be. The celebrity said that she is happier and more present now that she has stopped using the internet. Selena also spoke to Good Morning America about how stepping away from the internet changed her life.
Selena Gomez loves fast food.
On her TikTok stories, which was then shared on her largest Instagram fan account, Selena revealed her order from Jack in the Box, which was a cheeseburger, curly fries, and a drink., “So I be trying to stay skinny, but I went to Jack in the Box and I got 4 tacos, 3 egg rolls, onion rings, and a spicy chicken sandwich.” Then she continued, “But honestly, I don’t care about my weight…” And ended the video with, “I am perfect the way I am.”
Selena says that we should be careful about what we let ourselves be exposed to.
Selena asks her fans to be honest and focus on what they want in their life. She also asks them to remove themselves from fake, unrealistic image standards.
She reminds her fans that, “Being vulnerable is a strength, not a weakness.”
