The founder of Rare Beauty, Selena Gomez, has been vocal about body positivity in her recent posts. These posts are a continuation of her previous messages promoting self-love and her responses to body-shamers who have made negative remarks about her physique.

In April 2022, the star of “Selena + Chef” took a stand against those who criticized her body on TikTok. She expressed,”Honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people bitch about it anyway,”she shared on her TikTok Stories. “‘You’re too small,’ ‘you’re too big,’ ‘that doesn’t fit.’ ‘Meh meh meh meh.'”

“Bitch, I am perfect the way I am,” She continued. “Moral of the story? Bye.”

After the actress appearance at the 80th Golden Globes in January 2023, Selena Gomez faced online comments about her body shape.

In a video from an Instagram Live session, which was later shared on TikTok by the popnewsdaily account, Gomez addressed the issue while in conversation with her younger sister, Gracie Elliott Teefey.

She candidly shared with her followers, “I’m a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays,” before seeking affirmation from Gracie with a playful, “right?”

Upon Gracie’s apparent agreement, Gomez couldn’t help but laugh heartily.

In a video posted to the Instagram account of Rare Beauty in March 2023, Selena Gomez shared the wisdom she would impart to her younger self.

She expressed, “Something I wish I could tell my younger self is: Appreciate the face and the body that you have. May not look like everyone else, but you are who you are, and be proud of that,” as stated by Gomez in the video.

Gomez, who had a kidney transplant in September 2017 due to lupus complications, has previously discussed how her condition leads to “weight fluctuations” that used to concern her.

She explained in a November 2019 interview with her friend Raquelle Stevens on the video podcast Giving Back Generation,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 more of the body image stuff”.

The singer of “Lose You to Love Me” mentioned that her lupus and the necessary medication she takes “contribute” to her weight changes.
