Camila Cabello Has Penned A Refreshingly Honest Note To Social Media ‘Body Shamers’
Camila Cabello is the woman of the moment.
The former Fifth Harmony member has the song of the summer, and has been seen smooching fellow artist Shawn Mendes while promoting their hit Senorita.
But the beauty is hitting headlines for a different reason. The Havana singer took to Instagram to share a note to cyber bullies, after she saw a nasty online piece honing in bad pictures of her that had surfaced.
Camila spoke honestly about how she rarely goes on social media anymore thanks to the mean comments, and urges young people not to believe the perfect bodies that are so commonly seen on Instagram these days.
“I haven’t gone on social media AT ALL with the conscious intention of avoiding things that hurt my feelings, but for a second I forgot while trying to find a pic to post about it being Havana’s 2 year anniversary and my eyes accidentally ran over a headline of people body shaming me,” she wrote in a note posted to her Instagram stories.
“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 fucking 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.”
“I’m writing this for girls like my little sister who are growing up on social media. They’re constantly seeing photo shopped, edited pictures and thinking that’s reality, and everyone’s eyes get used to seeing airbrushed skin, an 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 bullshit today! Not today Satan, and I hope you don’t either.”
In conclusion, we STAN more than ever!
