“I don’t care about my weight gain”
Selena Gomez defends herself against body criticism
Selena Gomez had to endure some nasty jokes about her body after her performance at the Golden Globes. Now she fights back.
Selena Gomez attended the Golden Globes on Tuesday night. After that, however, it was not about her nomination that was discussed, but about her figure.
Selena Gomez (30) showed up at the Golden Globes on Tuesday evening. Striding down the red carpet in a low-cut, strapless, burgundy Valentino dress, she was nominated at the awards ceremony in the Best Television Actress – Musical/Comedy Series category for her performance in Only Murders In The Building. Still, after the event, people didn’t talk about her performance, but about her figure — she’s said to have put on a few pounds. Now the singer defends herself against the sayings.
“I’m a little fat at the moment because I’ve been enjoying the holidays,” she said in a live stream on Instagram, which she did with her little sister Gracie Elliott Teefey (9). Gomez turned her head to her and asked, “Right?” Her little sister agreed with Gomez. Teefey had also accompanied Gomez to the awards ceremony – which Gomez ended up getting nothing – and was also seen on the red carpet.
She has been an advocate for body positivity for a long time
The “Come And Get It” singer doesn’t mind that she had gained weight: “I don’t care,” she says. In the background, the song “Do My Thang” (German: “Do my thing”) by Miley Cyrus (30) can be heard. A powerful statement from Selena Gomez!
The American has been campaigning for more body positivity for a long time. Last August, she posted a video online showing her in a bathing suit. In the background someone can be heard telling her to suck in her stomach. ‘I’m not taking anything, damn it! Real bellies bloody well come back, okay?” the singer replied.

She doesn’t care about her weight
The reason behind the singer’s yo-yo is her autoimmune disease lupus. «It is because of the medicine that I have to take until the end of my life. It’s an up and down with the weight,” she explained in 2021. Gomez: “No matter how heavy or light I am, someone will always say something negative about my body. ‹You are too thin› or ‹You are too fat!›. The moral of the story is that I’m perfect.” (imh)
