Selena Gomez took to her official TikTok account on Sunday to address the trolls who’ve been criticizing her weight.
The Hands To Myself singer gave her opinion in a short clip posted on the social media platform, where she acknowledged having seen comments from people who have persistently felt the need to make negative comments about her body.
The 29-year-old said she’d been “trying to stay skinny” but gave into temptation when she made a stop at a fast-food restaurant and ended up indulging in a variety of things on the menu.
“So I be trying to stay skinny, but I went to Jack in the Box and I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings and a spicy chicken sandwich,” Selena told her followers.
“But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people bitch about it anyway: ‘You’re too small.’ ‘You’re too big.’ ‘That doesn’t fit.’ ‘Meh meh meh meh.’”
She then continued with a direct message to the body shamers as she stared directly into the camera and stated, “B****, I am perfect the way I am. Moral of the story? Bye.”
Selena received an outpouring amount of support in the comment section as fans praised her for not allowing others to dictate what she can and cannot eat.
“You are perfect Selena just the way you are I love you know matter what I don’t judge anyone ever,” one fan gushed in response to the video.
Another commented, “You’re hot and sweet and funny and i love you…. i dont even care about your weight….”
The Texas native is currently said to be working on her fourth studio album, which is the follow-up to her third record, Rare, released in January 2020, spanning the singles Look At Her Now, the self-titled track, and Lose You to Love Me.
Fans were left somewhat concerned in March 2021 when Selena told Vogue she was considering quitting music because she didn’t believe her artistry was taken seriously.
Despite having sold a reported 15 million albums and landed multiple high-charting entries with hits such as The Heart Wants What It Wants and Good For You, the Disney alum admitted to often feeling discouraged and unmotivated to carry on singing.
“It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously,” she told the reputable magazine. “I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’”
