Selena Gomez Slams Body Shamers Who Criticize Her Looks

Selena Gomez said that she doesn't care about her weight because people will criticize her anyway.

Selena Gomez has recently called out the body shamers who feel the need to comment on her looks. However, she also revealed that she doesn’t care about her weight and wishes other people wouldn’t either. Talking on her TikTok Stories, the actress and singer said that she tries to limit her fast-food meals but sometimes goes all in.

Selena said, “So I will be trying to stay skinny, but I went to Jack in the Box and I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings and a spicy chicken sandwich.” The Only Murders in the Building star added that it doesn’t matter because no matter what she does people will still criticize her body. The actress also said that she doesn’t care about her weight because people will criticize it anyway. She continues, “I am perfect the way I am.”

Gomez, who underwent a kidney transplant in September 2017 due to complications from lupus, has previously explained that her health issues cause “weight fluctuations” that used to bother her. In a previous interview, Selena stated, “I have lupus and deal with kidney issues and high blood pressure, so I deal with a lot of health issues, and for me, that’s when I really started noticing more of the body image stuff.”

The Lose You to Love Me singer said that the ‘combination’ of her lupus and the medication she needs alters her weight. “It’s the medication I have to take for the rest of my life it depends on even the month, to be honest,” Gomez said of her weight changes. “So for me, I really noticed when people started attacking me for that. And in reality, that’s just my truth. I fluctuate.”

The actress added on body shaming, “It depends on what’s happening in my life. That got to me big time.” “That really messed me up for a bit.” Gomez said that she’s mostly off social media now, which helps her ignore the haters. “I don’t care to expose myself to everyone and hear what they have to say about it,” she said.
