Instead of retouching her scars and bruises, Gomez uploaded an all-natural bikini photo.
Self acceptance and love
Since childhood, Selena Gomez has been in front of the camera for many series, and in the end she managed to prove herself to the heads of Disney and call her own show. In addition to the role of Alex Russo on “Die Zauberer vom Waverly Place,” Gomez also tried his hand at music and dropped her first songs before the American also released three number one albums.
But the musician was not always really happy, she had to deal with waiting paparazzi and was filmed day and night. And some of these photos were eventually the cause of the many hate messages and insults that Selena was subjected to around the clock. She became depressed, diet after diet, almost desperate about her life choices. But then Seal fell ill with the autoimmune disease lupus, underwent a kidney transplant and sold her Los Angeles home.
“Finally I feel feminine, [mein] The body feels comfortable. I love good food and always like chocolate and other things. Selena Gomez told OK! I want to enjoy my life and not only think about my diet, and she is happy with her new curves. And she showed it again at the beginning of July 2021 when she presented her bikini collab with LaMariette:
No more photoshop
Instead of being photographed as usual by a professional photographer who ultimately processes the photos, Gomez opts for a completely natural look. The American finally submitted a bikini selfie via Instagram story, in which not only was she wearing the two-piece swimsuit pictured above, but saw a scar on her right leg and a bruise on her left thigh:
Where did the scar come from?
At the end of 2020, Selena Gomez appeared in a swimsuit for the first time since a kidney transplant in the fall of 2015 and explained that she usually has her scar retouched in pictures. This time, though, she wanted to show it to all of her 242 million Instagram followers.
“I remember that after a kidney transplant it was very difficult to show my scar. I didn’t want it in the pictures so I wore things that would cover the scar. I’m more aware than ever of who I am and what I’ve been through…and I’m proud of that,” Gomez wrote. about this post.
Since then, about 13.6 million fans of Selena have left a red heart for her photo and agreed with her opinion that “all bodies are beautiful”.
