Selena Gomez has clapped back to critics on social media who described her as looking "thick" in photos where she's wearing a bikini.
The singer says myths about beauty trap women in "an endless cycle of hoplessness, self consciousness and self-hatred."
She says she chooses to take care of herself because she wants to, and not to prove anything to anyone.
The beauty myth- an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society’s impossible definition of flawless beauty. I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails. ??
