Selena Gomez Responds To Body Shamers Who “Bitch About” Her Weight

Selena Gomez went to TikTok on April 10 to open up about the judgment she’s received surrounding her weight.

The 29-year-old singer posted a video saying, “So, I 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. But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people bitch about it anyway: ‘You’re too small.’ ‘You’re too big.’ ‘That doesn’t fit.’ ‘Meh meh meh meh.'”

Gomez then had something to say to body shamers: “Bitch, I am perfect the way I am. Moral of the story? Bye.”

Gomez previously spoke up about body shaming during a 2019 episode of Giving Back Generation and shared her battle with lupus affects her weight.

“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 the body image stuff.”

When discussing how lupus affects her weight, the star said, “It’s a combination of all of it. It’s the medication that I have to take for the rest of my life. It depends on even the month, to be honest. So, for me, I really noticed when people started attacking me for that. And in reality, that’s just my truth. I fluctuate. It depends what’s happening in my life….And that got to me big time, you know? I think for me, that really messed me up for a bit.” 

Gomez announced her lupus diagnosis in 2015 and had a kidney transplant in 2017. Since then, she hasn’t been on the internet. She told Good Morning America that she hasn’t “been on the internet in four and a half years.” She said she creates social media content, and her team shares it with the world.

“Taking a break from social media was the best decision that I’ve ever made for my mental health,” she told InStyle. “I created a system where I still don’t have my passwords. And the unnecessary hate and comparisons went away once I put my phone down. I’ll have moments where that weird feeling will come back, but now I have a much better relationship with myself.”
