Camila Cabello is not going to let body shaming internet bullies bring her down.
She used an experience of being body shamed on social media to deliver a strong worded, honest and heartfelt message to her younger fans. The singer took to Insta stories to tell her fans that she had gone on the internet to find and post a picture to celebrate the two year anniversary of her 2017 summer hit Havana when she stumbled across a headline about her being dragged for her physique.
“Honestly first thing I felt was super insecure just IMAGINING what these pictures must look like, oh no! My cellulite! Oh no! I didn't suck in my stomach! But then I was like... of course there are bad pictures, of course there are bad angles, my body’s not made of rock, or all muscle, for that matter, but the saddest part of young girls growing up in an airbrushed world is they're seeking a perfection that's not real."
She continued by reassuring and inspiring young girls on social media writing, “I’m writing this for girls like my little sister who are growing up on social media. They’re constantly seeing photoshopped, edited pictures and thinking that’s reality, and everyone’s eyes get used to seeing airbrushed skin, and suddenly they think THAT'S the norm. ?!!! It isn't. It’s fake. AND FAKE IS BECOMING THE NEW REAL. We have a completely unrealistic view of a woman’s body. Girls, cellulite is normal, fat is normal. It’s beautiful and natural. I won’t buy into bull today! Not today... And I hope you don’t either"
More power to her, but srsly tho, when will trolls just STOP?!
