Selena Gomez, however, has not allowed the negative comments to bring her down.
On January 10, 2023, while walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes, an actress who had starred in the movie Only Murders in the Building and had been a longtime campaigner for body acceptance was subjected to many comments that shamed her physique. Selena, age 30, and Gracie Elliot Teefey her younger sister, who was in attendance at the awards show with Selena, talked about Selena’s weight increase during an Instagram Live broadcast.
She may be heard asking the following in a TikTok video that has since gone viral: “Right? During the holiday season, I let myself go completely, and as a result, I gained a little bit of weight.
As Gracie responded with a “Yeah,” Selena began to giggle uncontrollably.
The musician interviewed the press while wearing a plum velvet Valentino Fall 2022 Haute Couture gown with puff sleeves, no straps, and a lengthy train. Selena’s portrayal as Mabel Mora in Only Murders in the Building, streamed on Hulu, earned her the first Golden Globe of her career.
The prominent figure has voiced out against the harmful practice of body shaming. She came forward in April of that year (2022) and said that she had experienced discrimination due to her appearance.
She posted on TikTok that she had just eaten “4 tacos, 3 egg onion rings, rolls, and a spicy chicken sandwich” at Jack in the Box, even though she makes a concerted effort to keep a trim figure. People are continually commenting on my weight, but it doesn’t bother me because I have accepted it. Being such a small person, you will never amount to anything significant. You’re just too enormous. It needs to have a higher level of decorum. Join me in saying, “Meh, meh.”
She addressed her detractors by saying, “Whore, I don’t have to change a thing!” in response to their criticisms. So, what exactly are we to take away from this? Bye.”
