Selena Gomez showed off her sexy bikini body on Instagram while teasing a top-secret photo shoot. Selena, who has lost a noticeable amount of weight recently, looked stunning in a tiny black bikini that accentuated her slender torso.
“Comin soon, hehe,” Gomez wrote Dec. 16 in the caption to the Instagram photo. Selena, who has been dating One Direction’s Niall Horan, said being fat-shamed after gaining a few pounds inspired her album, Revival.
“I was getting a lot of hate for my body and ‘You’re gaining weight,'” Gomez told Extra. “I would be lying if I said it didn’t kind of hurt my feelings, but I kind of channeled that into my music.”
In May 2015, Gomez made headlines after slamming a fat-shaming troll who told her she needed to work out. The heated exchange quickly escalated after an Instagram user wrote to Gomez, “You need to work out. Please stop eating junk food.”
In response, a Selena Gomez fan account replied, “Stop being so judgmental. Her curves are beautiful.” The fat-shaming troll fired back, saying Gomez should hit the gym if she wants to stay in show business.
Selena then jumped in and pointed out that she’s already in show biz and she does work out. “You’re disgusting,” Gomez wrote on Instagram. “I’m IN the business and I could care less about what ‘they’ or you said I should look like. And I do work out. It’s not your place to tell anyone what they should or should not do.”
Selena, who has been skinny all her life, admitted she had gained weight but said she loved her body exactly as it was. “I love being happy with me y’all,” Gomez wrote on Instagram. “There’s more to love.”
In June 2011, Selena was hospitalized for malnutrition after confessing she lived on a junk food diet.
I do eat. The problem is I don’t eat right. I love everything that’s possibly not good for me.”
Selena was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after suffering from blood pressure-related health problems. Tests revealed Gomez was malnourished and suffering from an iron deficiency. Selena was diagnosed with lupus several years ago, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
Gomez, who dated Justin Bieber and is friends with Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato, said she stays grounded by being friends with non-celebrities. “I think it’s equally as important to have people who aren’t in the industry,” said Selena. “I’m able to recognize how people treat me differently than they treat my friends who aren’t famous.”
