Everyone should embrace the beauty as well as the flaws of their body equally and that is what almost everyone, may it be a celebrity or a non-celebrity says. Nowadays everyone is encouraging body positivity and it is not denied that both males, as well as women, are subjected to body shaming, but the special point out is given to the women and more often to the women celebrities.
The three-time Grammy Award nominee, 24, also faced this recently and cultivated a reply at the body shamers and encouraging her fans to love their curves and embrace their true selves, just the ways she loves her own body.
Earlier this week, she took over the video creating app
TikTok, to reply to her body shamers, who think that it is just fine to comment
on one’s body and make them feel discouraged, making them feel bad about their
body. The Cuban-American singer-songwriter Camila Cabello went for a run and
mentioned that she “loves (her) body”.
"I was just running in the park minding my own business trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy and I am wearing a top that shows my belly, and I wasn't tucking it in," the singer said when the camera was angling down to reveal her short blacktop, workout pants, and exposed midriff.
"I wasn't tucking it in, because I was running. And existing. Like a normal person that doesn't tuck it in all the time.” The 24-year-old singer, in the beginning, felt unsure about her looks, but then she reminded herself, “being at war with your body is so last season."
She ended the clip, "I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do. We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat. And we gotta own that, baby."
Cabello concluded the video on a silly note by stroking gently her body while singing the lyrics from the Aretha Franklin 1976 classic, “Something He Can Feel.”
The video has gained over 16 million views over 24 hours
with reaching 3 million likes. Thousands of fans commented to thank the “Havana”
singer for spreading the body positivity message.
“Be grateful for our REAL bodies,” said one. “This made me feel more confident about myself!” commented another. The singer has also created a sense of body positivity to Shawn Mendes, her boyfriend; he also told the British GQ some months ago that Camila is really strong, clear, and confident as well as empathetic towards other people. Further, he stated that she has changed his point of view.
