Selena Gomez Said Body-Shaming Forced Her To Take A Social Media Break


Despite being one of the most-followed people on Instagram, Selena Gomez doesn't spend a lot of time on social media these days. During a recent conversation with Raquelle Stevens on her podcast, Giving Back GenerationSelena Gomez said being body-shamed inspired her to take a social media break, as she says the attacks on her weight "messed me up."
The singer sat down with Stevens, a longtime friend, for the most recent episode of her "Vodcast" and opened up about dealing with her health issues in the public eye. "I experienced [body-shaming] with my weight fluctuation for the first time," Gomez said, referencing the attacks she's received from trolls over the yearsdue to her weight. "I have lupus and deal with kidney issues and high blood pressure, so I deal with a lot of health issues, and for me that’s when I really started noticing more of the body image stuff." She added that due to her various health-related issues, her weigh fluctuates "depend[ing] on even the month," which people began pointing out online when Gomez would share photos of herself in a bathing suit.
"For me I really noticed [the change] when people started attacking me for that," Gomez said, adding that being judged on her body "got to me big time" and "really messed me up for a bit."
