The Selena Gomez shares her journey with mental health issues:
Selena Gomez recently reflected on the critics who commented on her body online in 2017 as she privately battled Lupus and eventually needed a kidney transplant.
In an interview with Fast Company, Selena shared that, “None of the sample sizes were fitting, and that would make me feel embarrassed, although how unrealistic is it to expect a normal woman’s body not to change?” She also said that all these thoughts and critical opinions were coming at a time when she no longer had a teenager’s body.
But physical appearance wasn’t the only problem she was dealing with. With the public break in 2018 that she went through with Justin Bieber, she started comparing herself with people on social media.
She also said that she didn’t feel positive about herself.
“Wow, I wish my body looked like that.”
