Just a few weeks before, Selena Gomez had dropped “Ice Cream” with the Blackpink. Now the singer has posted a picture on her Instagram page where she is showing off her scar (which goes down onto her leg).
In the caption, Gomez says, after getting done with her kidney transplant she was not comfortable showing off her scar. She used to wear various things to cover up the scar because she didn’t want it to be in her pictures.
Selena Gomez goes on saying that now she feels more confident than ever and is not ashamed in who she is and what she has gone through instead is proud of whatever happened. In her post, she is wearing a sky blue swimsuit which is designed by La Mariette, a company that promotes inclusivity in swimwear and the idea that “all bodies are beautiful.”
In today’s world, young female celebrities are often pressured to wear less clothing. However, the 28-years-old singer has already deal with this issue, and moreover, her fans used to body scrutinized both before and after she got a scar due to her 2017 kidney transplant.
The American singer was diagnosed with lupus back in 2015 and she used to keep her fans aware of the changes in her health. Later in 2017, many of the fans showed concerned to Gomez and she revealed that she’d been “laying low” due to her surgery. Gomez explained on Instagram that she had come to know that she needed to get a kidney transplant because she was diagnosed with lupus and was recovering.
Thanks to the American actress and Gomez’s friend, Francia Rasia who gave the singer a kidney and also posted a photo of her abdomen, where the scar was visible. “It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you,” Gomez says.
The health issues of Gomez has always been a topic of conversation. While she is the one who has faced it openly and honestly. But still, through social media, the singer has received a lot of negative comments on her body.
While speaking to Allure, Gomez said, at that time she had a lot of medical issues to deal with, and since she also had a lot of changes in her weight and for one person to handle so much together was unfair.
On Gomez’s Instagram account, she has posted many pictures of her wearing a bathing suit. However, in her music videos, the story was different. The song that dropped for her Rare singles including “Boyfriend” and “Lose You to Love Me” videos she was seen in lovely, full-length dresses. But later she went on taking a bold step.
In her latest music video “Ice Cream” feat with K-pop group Blackpink, the artist was seen wearing a red-and-white striped bikini. This is probably the most skin she has shown on the screen and was looking extremely stunning in that video. For more updates, keep watching this space.
