When Selena Gomez posed nude for her album Revival, she had no idea that she would be criticized for her healthy body. The singer and actress reveals what it felt like to be body shamed. “It hurt my feelings because I never experienced that before,” she tells In Style UK. but I didn't want [that] to be the story, so I said, "I don't care what you think!” 

Earlier in the year, Selena shared that she had gained some weight but big deal! “It's not even about my weight. It's just that I'm not going to give a f--k what people say—sorry!.”

Despite her confidence, the 23-year-old says that it’s not always easy to look into the mirror and feel good about herself. “Some days, I like what I see,” she tells In Style. “Other days I'm like, ‘I'm not even going to bother’".

Good for her! Selena has nothing to be embarrassed about. She’s young, healthy and in shape. Maybe she gained a few pounds; who hasn’t? Body shamers really need a better online hobby than harassing a young girl for being NORMAL.

In the same interview, Selena opens up about always being linked to ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. “It's really hard because I'm a nice person,” she says. “I'm just tired of talking about it. I never intended for my life to become a tabloid story.”
