Selena Gomez is an expert traveler. The singer, actress, and businesswoman has been posting bits and pieces from her trip to Italy this summer on social media, and her most recent TikTok not only features her basking in the sun on a boat. There is a gentle reminder regarding body image in the post as well. (Read: Hoda Kotb Explained Why She Said She’ll Always Wear a Bikini)
On TikTok, Gomez delivered a fairly serious message while mouthing the words to a humorous sound clip. She is seen in the video relaxing on a boat while wearing a purple one-piece swimsuit. A voice can be heard in the clip’s background saying, “Suck it in.” Gomez says the same words as the music she paired with her video, “I’m not sucking shit in.” The voice asks once more, “Why?” She mouths, “Real stomachs is coming the fuck back, okay?”
Gomez captioned the picture the TikTok that was posted on Wednesday, “Vaca self.” More than 11 million people have already viewed and liked the brief video. Although the video is brief and humorous, the reminder from a well-known celebrity that all bodies are wonderful just the way they are undoubtedly had an impact.
If you follow Gomez on TikTok, you are aware of her frequent usage of the service to be open and honest about her body image. The Only Murders In the Building actor opened out about remarks she’s received about her body over the years and how she feels about herself in a candid video she released earlier this year on the app.
The 30-year-old in the video adds, “So, I be trying to keep slender, but I went to Jack In The Box and had four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings, and a spicy chicken sandwich.” “But to be completely honest, I don’t care about my weight because people often complain about it. “That doesn’t fit,” “You’re too big,” and “You’re too small.” “Meh, meh, meh, meh.”” “Bitch, I am perfect the way I am,” she concluded the open video.
Gomez is not a lover of social media, despite the fact that she utilizes it to communicate personal views and inspire people to embrace themselves. She admitted in 2021 that she actually makes an effort to avoid using applications like Instagram and TikTok as much as possible. Gomez noted in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) at the time, “This is too much of my personal life thrown out everywhere, and it just felt uncontrollable.” “I felt like everything I was thinking about and taking in revolved around a million other individuals around the world speaking positive and terrible things,” the author said.
She continues to provide a ton of stuff for her admirers on Instagram and TikTok, but she probably doesn’t upload it herself. According to the WWD interview, Gomez’s assistant might post pictures and words from her so she can share what she wants without experiencing the information overload associated with excessive online usage.
Although setting social media limits is crucial, supporters are delighted that Gomez continues to share content, particularly when it inspires people to accept their tummies and bodies in general precisely as they are. Salute to everyone with “real stomachs”!
