Cabello’s fans must know that the singer has been vocal about body positivity several times in the past. She has expressed being grateful for having the body she had and has said that having curves, stretch marks, fat, and cellulite is extremely normal to have.
Now, Camila Cabello has taken to her Instagram to share her struggles with body image. “Every time I’ve gone to this beach club in Miami I get paper – somehow when I check in papas know and get me in my bikini and every time I’ve felt super vulnerable and unprepared – I’ve worn bikinis that were too small and paid no mind to how I looked, then saw pictures online and comments and been so upset,” Camila said.
The singer then went on to state how the recent culture creates unrealistic expectations for oneself. “I reminded myself when it impacted my self-esteem that I was thinking the culture’s thoughts and not my own. A culture who has gotten so used to an image of what a “healthy” woman’s body looked like that is completely not real for a lot of women,” Camila Cabello added.
“Emotionally, the messaging I get from our world in loud in my own head. Ironically, all the therapy, all the inner work is to try and get back to feeling like 7 year old me on the beach. I’m mourning her today. Happy, silly, breathing, pretending to be a mermaid, FREE,” the Senorita singer ended the note with this.
