Selena Gomez opens up about how the body-shaming comments on her social media really made her feel.
"I lied. I would go online and I would post a picture of myself and say [the negative comments] don't matter, I'm not accepting what you're saying — all the while being in the room posting that, crying my eyes out, because nobody deserves to hear those things,"
She continued: "I was posting these things saying it doesn't bother me because I didn't want it to bother other people who are experiencing the same thing — getting shamed for what they look like, who they are, who they love. I just think it's so unfair. I don't think that anybody deserves to feel less than."
"I tend to hold a lot of water weight and that happens very normally. And then when I'm off of [my medication], I tend to lose weight,"
"I just wanted to say and encourage anyone out there who feels any sort of shame for exactly what they're going for and nobody knows the real story — I just want people to know that you're beautiful and you're wonderful and, yeah, maybe we have days where we feel like s—t but I would much rather be healthy and take care of myself."
