Selena Is Telling Girls to Stop Showing Their Bodies on Insta
In addition to making a glorious return to public life and explaining she had to take a break because she felt â€œabsolutely broken inside,â€ Selena Gomez also made a pleaÂ to all the young girls out there at the AMAs this weekend.
Stop getting half-naked on Instagram.
â€œI donâ€™t want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see whatâ€™s in here,â€ Selena said during her AMA acceptance speech, pointing to her heart.
Youâ€™re giving us the after-school special talk?
Granted, what she probably meant to say was something empowering along the lines of, “I showed my half-naked body on Instagram and it didn’t make me happy so don’t assume it’ll make you happy either,” but it came out like low-key slut shaming statement instead.
While no girls should feel obligated to push up their boobs and wear revealing clothes on Instagram if thatâ€™s not theirÂ thing, if it is and you’re old enough to make your own decisions about it,Â you should feel empowered to do that.
Hopefully this is just a one-time lapse of judgement for Selena and not a reflection of her values now.
ThereÂ are more ways to set a good example for the children out there than by borderline shaming them, Sele boo boo.
