Selena Gomez says she 'lied' about being unaffected by body shamers

Selena Gomez said she "lied" about being unaffected by body shamers' disparaging remarks, revealing that she would be "crying" her "eyes out" in her room.

"I lied. I would go online and I would post a picture and I would say, 'It doesn't matter. I'm not accepting what you're saying,'" Selena said in her new documentary series being aired on Apple TV+.

While she showed she was impervious to the internet trolls, Gomez admitted she would still be in her room "crying" her "eyes out because no one deserves to hear those things."

"I was posting these things saying it doesn't bother me because I didn't want it to bother other people who are experiencing the same thing," Gomez said.

"Getting shamed for what they look like, who they are, who they love, I just think it's so unfair," she added.

Explaining that she "was being shamed for gaining weight" due to her lupus, the actress said her weight tends to go up on the scales when she takes her medication for the autoimmune disease. "When I'm taking it, I tend to hold a lot of water weight, and that happens very normally. When I'm off of it, I tend to kind of lose weight," she previously shared in a TikTok video.

"I just wanted to say and encourage anyone out there who feels any sort of shame for exactly what they're going through and no one knows the real story."

"I just want people to know that you're beautiful, and you're wonderful," she concluded. (ANI)
