- Selena Gomez said “real stomachs” are coming back in a new TikTok clip.
- The actor posted a video of herself in a swimsuit while on vacation on Wednesday.
- Gomez previously said she doesn’t care about her weight because “people bitch about it anyway.”
Selena Gomez is back with another TikTok celebrating body positivity.
On Wednesday, Gomez posted a video while on vacation. The clip shows the actor on a boat soaking up some rays in a blue one-piece swimsuit as she lip-synchs to a quote from YouTube star Tasha K.
“I’m not sucking shit in. Real stomachs is coming the fuck back OK,” Gomez says as she pats her stomach.
This isn’t the first time Gomez has been candid about body image.
In April, the “Only Murders in the Building” star took to her TikTok stories to talk about a trip to Jack in the Box.
“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,” Gomez said in the clip, which was captured by the Instagram account @selenagomezecu2.0.
“But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people bitch about it anyway,” she added.
Gomez said she’s heard people say “you’re too big,” or that her clothes don’t fit.
“Meh, meh, meh, meh,” she continued. “Bitch, I am perfect the way I am. Moral of the story? Bye.”
Gomez has been candid about her weight for years. In a 2019 interview, the actress said she began struggling with “body image stuff” shortly after she was diagnosed with lupus and had to undergo an emergency kidney transplant in 2017. She began taking medication for the chronic autoimmune disease, which caused her weight to fluctuate.
“I really noticed when people started attacking me for that,” Gomez said during the interview with her friend Raquelle Stevens on the “Giving Back Generation” video podcast.
Gomez said the criticism about her weight “got to me big time” and “really messed me up for a bit,” but she eventually realized “that’s just my truth.”
“I fluctuate,” she added. “It depends on what’s happening in my life.”
