Gomez posted a video of herself in an orange bikini where she looked gorgeous and content with her life. The caption under the photo read, “I chose to take care of myself because i want to, not to prove anything to anyone.”
The beauty myth- 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. I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails. ??
She further added, “The beauty myth – 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.”
Gomez had been a victim of body shame once before as well. Her struggle with criticism even forced her to see a therapist. While talking about being fat-shamed, she told US Weekly, “I’d land at the airport and people would yell out, ‘You’re fat!’ It was awful.
“This was the first year I ever dealt with anyone talking about my body. I’ve been working in therapy.”
In 2015, Gomez revealed that she had been diagnosed with lupus, a ‘chronic autoimmune disease’. One of its side-effects includes getting your abdomen a little bloated which explained her recent photos.
Last year, she also underwent a kidney transplant surgery with her best friend, during the summer.
Selenators stood up and came to Gomez’s defense and told off all the haters. Some of the fans also shared the fact that her gaining a little weight is a side-effect of her disease and surgery.

Her Puma shoot was how long ago … bodies don’t stay the same forever lol and she also still has lupus which has a an effect on her body. And please don’t use the word ‘fat’ I don’t care if you meant no harm but that word isn’t necessary to EVER describe Selena.
