There are a growing number of Hollywood celebrities calling out body shaming, and now Selena Gomez is the next A-list star to vouch for self confidence.
Fans of the Rare Beauty founder would know that Gomez has been taking a well-deserved break, heading to Europe for a sun-soaked, beachside vacation. But while she's been sunbathing and taking dips in the sea, she's taken to TikTok to keep us all in check.
In her latest video, the 30-year-old can be seen relaxing on a boat, wearing a lavender and orange swimsuit and lip-syncing to a TikTok sound, where someone asks to "suck it in", referring to the listener's stomach.
"I'm not sucking s--t in," Gomez lip synced, before finishing the line with,"Real stomachs is coming the f--k back, Ok?"
Of course, fans loved the messaging behind her video, even calling Gomez a "relatable queen" for embracing her "real stomach".
"I never follow celebrities on TT because I don't want to mess up my algorithm lol. You have been my only exception to that," one user wrote.
"Body positivity! So refreshing," another wrote.
The encouraging post served as a more giggle-worthy contrast to the heartfelt message that shared on the app days before, where she expressed her gratitude for the love over her 30th birthday celebrations.
"Okay, I don't really talk on TikTok so this is weird," Gomez began the video.
"I wanted to say thank you so much to every person that wished me a happy birthday. I got to see some of your messages. I don't read a lot of comments, but the few that I read were really, really sweet and I just want you to know that I don't take that for granted," she said.
"I also want to thank everyone who did contribute even just a penny to the Rare Impact Fund. I could not be more grateful and I'm 30 and I'm, so far I'm enjoying it," she continued.
The Only Murders In The Building star has always openly spoken about her relationship with her body, particularly after battling her health issues over the years.
In a 2019 interview on the Giving Back Generation series, Gomez spoke candidly about how the medication that she takes to treat her lupus, and following her kidney transplant in 2017, is one of the main contributors to her fluctuating weight.
"I deal with a lot of health issues, and for me that's when I really started noticing more of the body image stuff," she said. "It's the medication I have to take for the rest of my life—it depends on even the month, to be honest."
"I really noticed when people started attacking me for that. And in reality, that's just my truth. I fluctuate."
And back in April, she took to her TikTok to call out the hate she receives on a daily basis about her body, telling the world that she 'doesn't care'.
"I don't care about my weight because people b—h about it anyway," she said, adding, "'You're too small,' 'you're too big,' 'that doesn't fit.' 'Meh meh meh meh.'"
"B—h, I am perfect the way I am," she concluded. "Moral of the story? Bye."
Honestly, who could use a leaf out of Selena Gomez's self help book? We certainly could.
