Selena Gomez may have slammed haters who shamed her for gaining weight recently. However, the songstress is further proving that she can’t be held down by negative comments as she shares a plethora of decadent food photos via Instagram just weeks after encouraging fans to love their body.
Hollywood Life reports that Selena took to the photo-sharing site on May 28 to share a pic of a delicious meal that she enjoyed with close friends, only weeks after Gomez revealed in an interview that people have been bullying her for her recent weight gain.
Selena shared the photo from an outing with friends at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills on May 28 in which the group dined on a decadent meal of squab and lettuce, minced beef pancake and prawns, and other delicious items.
The photo serves as a direct diss to haters who have been body shaming Selena for reportedly gaining weight.
Gomez opened up about her experiences with online bullying during her Q&A Session with Google Hangout for her new Adidas NEO line on May 14 in which she told a fan that if she could change one aspect of the world, it would be to eliminate bullying.
“Bullying. I would deactivate every single comment on any social media. I think you should have an email where you can send in questions, but you should be able to post what you want, say what you want, be what you want without anyone judging you or making you feel like your self-value is from an Instagram post or from people liking your post.”
Selena then reiterates her feelings by noting, “I’d get rid of bullying. People are so mean, it’s exhausting.”
While some attribute Gomez’s weight gain to her split from Justin Bieber, Selena insists that she is embracing her curves and wants to live a healthier lifestyle outside of obsessing about the numbers on the scale.
The Daily Mail reveals that according to a source close to Gomez, Selena is focusing on her health and happiness since calling it quits with Bieber.
“She’s trying her hardest to live a healthier lifestyle. Selena feels sexier than ever”
In addition, after a fan shamed Gomez by calling her “chubs” on a recent Instagram photo in which the singer posed in a bikini, Selena shot back with a classy comment in defense of her new curves, writing, “There’s more to love.”
The news comes on the heels of reports that Selena and ex Bieber may be rekindling their romance.
The duo were recently spotted in a Snapchat video taken earlier this week and shared by preacher Rich Wilkerson Jr., showing Bieber and Gomez in the same room with a group of people.
“They are definitely not back together whatsoever. Definitely not. For the first time, it wasn’t awkward. They were cordial and friendly to each other. It was harmless.”
