A recent post that claimed Selena Gomez’s weight was impacted by her relationship with her ex Justin Bieber appeared on TikTok. Apparently, TikTok is obsessed with Selena Gomez’s past. The video, which was published on November 29, included a montage of Selena’s old images with the caption, “The reason why Selena is always skinny when she dates Justin.”
Selena’s understated response to the video consisted of nothing more than an emoji of a sad face. Justin, who has been married to Hailey Bieber since 2018, also said in the video that she “preferred models” and bemoaned Selena, calling her “my poor baby.” The singer appeared to be responding to why people are so preoccupied with talking about her weight by posting a dejected emoji.
“Her weight shouldn’t even be a topic of concern”, a user who commented on the post in Gomez’s favour added. Numerous users shared the same sentiment after the post went viral. Selena has now spoken out about this post. Selena did not mention anything explosive or precise in her mysterious yet understated response to the TikTok post, other than a sad face emoticon.
Selena Gomez’s documentary, “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me,” features an open discussion of how her health problems have affected her weight. She spoke candidly about the responses and harsh remarks made by online users who openly addressed her weight. She said, “It’s a combination of all of it. It’s the medication that I have to take for the rest of my life. It depends on even the month, to be honest. So, for me, I really noticed when people started attacking me for that. And in reality, that’s just my truth. I fluctuate. It depends what’s happening in my life….And that got to me big time, you know? I think for me, that really messed me up for a bit.”
