Selena Gomez Hits Back At Body Shamers
Almost immediately after the pictures came out — the body shaming comments began toward the Wolves singer, who underwent a kidney transplant last year.


Gomez published a video with a powerful message to hit back at all the body shaming comments. The singer wrote that the beauty myth was “an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society’s impossible definition of flawless beauty.


Selena went on to say,”I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails.


Since having her kidney transplant, Gomez has opened up about her changing body and accepting her surgical scar.

“It was really hard in the beginning. I remember looking at myself in the mirror completely naked and thinking about all the things that I used to bitch about and just asking, “Why?” Gomez told Billboard about her transplant scar. “I had someone in my life for a very long time who pointed out all the things that I didn’t feel great about with myself. When I look at my body now, I just see life. There are a million things I can do ― lasers and creams and all that stuff ― but I’m OK with it.”
