Selena Gomez Shut Down Body Shamers In Her Latest TikTok Stories

The singer is done with being told she's "too big" or "too small."

Renowned singer Selena Gomez used her recent TikTok Stories on April 10th to address the negativity she has encountered regarding her body image. "Despite attempts to maintain a slender figure, I indulged in a meal from Jack In The Box. I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings and a spicy chicken sandwich," shared the star, now 29. "Truthfully though, my weight isn't of concern to me because no matter what, people will always have something to say. 'You're too skinny.' 'You're too fat.' 'That doesn't suit you.' It's a never-ending cycle."

Gomez is making it known that she's done being the bigger person when it comes to her critics. "It's simple really, I am perfect just as I am," the actress from Only Murders In The Building pronounced during her Stories. This echoes similar sentiments expressed by Bridgerton's Nicola Coughlan who also recently had to fend off body shamers.

Gomez, the renowned singer, has never shied away from speaking her mind on issues regarding body-shaming and the criticism she's been subject to over time. She shared her experiences for the first time in 2019 on the Giving Back Generation vodcast, revealing that her weight began fluctuating due to specific medication she had to take for lupus, an autoimmune condition causing inflammation in various parts of the body including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs. "The reality is that my weight varies depending on the month and what's happening in my life," she stated candidly during the interview. She noticed people starting to criticize her when her weight changes became apparent, which also contributed to her decision to withdraw from Instagram. The platform was becoming detrimental to her and other young people's mental health as they would spend considerable amounts of their time focusing on the negative comments. In her 2019 appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Gomez revealed how this was impacting her, leading to depression, a distorted self-image, and body dysmorphia. Quitting social media has, according to Gomez, greatly improved her relationship with herself and her body image. This step has been the best decision she made concerning her mental health, as she disclosed in an interview with InStyle. "To be able to look at myself in the mirror and feel confident about who I am was what I wanted," she added. "The unnecessary hate and comparisons disappeared when I put down my phone." Evidently, online trolls do not affect the resilient star who knows that her worth isn't dependent on social media. If there are any doubts about her stance, her conclusive words on her final TikTok Story should clarify everything: "Moral of the story? Bye."
