Selena Gomez was recently photographed vacationing with friends in Australia, marking the first time the young singer has worn a bikini since undergoing a kidney transplant last summer. Body shamers immediately attacked Gomez, 25, for her curvier figure, but she clapped back in an unexpected way.
Gomez posted a carefree video of herself in a bathing suit hanging out with girlfriends, along with a body positivity message.
“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 wrote. “I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails.”
