Selena Gomez is losing the outside noise and loving herself.
The “Calm Down” singer recently reflected on dealing with critics commenting on her body online in 2017 as she privately battled Lupus and ultimately needed a kidney transplant.
“None of the sample sizes were fitting, and that would make me feel embarrassed,” Selena explained to Fast Company in an interview published Oct. 3. “Although how unrealistic is it to expect a normal woman’s body not to change?”
The 31-year-old added that it was coming at a time when she no longer had a “teenager’s body.”
But a physical change wasn’t the only hardship she was enduring at the time. Looking back at her highly-publicized 2018 breakup with Justin Bieber, the “Wolves” artist noted she started comparing herself on social media.
“I had just gotten my heart broken. I didn’t need to see what everyone was doing,” Selena, who dated Justin on and off for eight years, recalled. “Then there were those moments of not feeling positive about how I looked because of what I’d see on Instagram. ‘Wow, I wish my body looked like that.'”
