Earlier this year, Selena Gomez shared her struggle with body positivity when she gained weight as a result of her Lupus medication.
“I lied,” Gomez says. “I would go online and I would post a picture of myself and I would say, ‘It doesn’t matter. I’m not accepting what you’re saying.’
“All the while, being in the room posting and crying my eyes out because nobody deserves to hear those things.”
She says the brave face came from wanting to help other through the same thing.
“Though I was posting these things saying it doesn’t bother me, because I didn’t want it to bother other people who are experiencing the same thing, getting shamed for what they look like, who they are, who they love,” she said. “I just think it’s so unfair. I don’t think that anybody deserves to feel less than.”
