Selena Gomez on body shaming, weight gain and dealing with lupus
The 30-years old actress has always been honest about her medical condition lupus. She was body shamed earlier this year when she posted pictures in a swimsuit in which she appears bulkier than usual. The internet, that always idolizes Perfection, didn’t go easy on her. At the end, the pop star defended herself.
‘When I’m taking it (medication), I tend to hold water weight, and that happens very normally. When I’m off it, I tend to kind of lose weight.’
Selena advocates originality and being comfortable in your own skin. On Dear…, the documentary series on Apple+, she is recorded saying, ‘My weight would constantly fluctuate because I’d be on a certain medication. And obviously, people just ran with it. I was shamed for gaining weight because of my lupus.’
She also revealed that she was highly affected by the massive trolling because of her weight gain.
‘I lied. I would go online and post a picture of myself and say (negative comments) don’t matter. I’m not accepting what you’re saying.’
What is Lupus?
Lupus is an auto-immune disease meaning that the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs, resulting in inflammation. It affects many body parts like joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs. No two lupus are same.
There is no cure for lupus, but there are treatments to lessen the impact.
