When Selena Gomez Expressed Disappointment Over Being Attacked For Her Weight Gain: "...That Really Messed Me Up"

Selena Gomez has lived most of her life under the public radar. She began her career at the age of 7 with Barney & Friends.

But despite all her hard work, it is her personal life that often grabs the eyeballs. Sometimes her relationships, and other times, it's her fluctuation in weight.

Most often, celebrities are expected to maintain an 'hourglass figure.' That has often lead many to come to terms with issues they face with their body.

For Selena, it was lupus that messed it all, and ever since she's been struggling with changes in her weight.

She was massively trolled and mocked because of the weight she gained around 2017-2019.

She said, before going on to explain that though the condition doesn't directly affect her weight, "it’s the combination of all of it.

It’s the medication I have to take for the rest of my life—it depends on even the month, to be honest. So for me, I really noticed when people started attacking me for that."

We hope Selena Gomez and other celebrities get the strength to ignore the unnecessary opinions!
