On January 10th, 2023, Selena Gomez attended Golden Globes. The “Same Old Love” hit wore a black Valentino gown with purple puffy sleeves. However, her look receives many awful comments because she has gained some weight recently. Selena has some payback comments during a livétream on social media immediately following the awards show on Jan 10th.
“I’m a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays, right?” Gomez asked her half-sister Gracie Elliot Teefey in the video — which has since been reshared on TikTok.
Nine-year-old Teefey responded, “Yeah,” and Gomez began laughing.
Selena Gomez is no stranger to body-shaming comments, she has been outspoken about weight and body-shaming throughout her career. Her first time experience the first time is right after she was diagnosed with Lupus.
“I experienced [body-shaming] with my weight fluctuation for the first time,” Gomez previously said on an episode of the “Giving Back Generation” podcast. “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.”
“But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people b—- about it anyway.”
She went on to give examples of the kinds of comments she receives: “You’re too small. You’re too big. That doesn’t fit. Meh, meh, meh, meh.”
“B—-, I am perfect the way I am.”
