Camila Cabello is overwhelmed by the attitude of paparazzi and the comments on her physique. It’s hard to have a relaxing time at the beach!
In a long message posted on Instagram last weekend, the singer emptied her bag.
She revealed that in a bikini at the beach she was ‘not breathing’ because of the paparazzi and was holding her stomach so tight her ‘abs hurt’ as they photographed her from all angles .
“I felt super vulnerable and unprepared. I wore a bikini that was too small and didn’t pay attention to how I looked, then I saw pictures online and comments and I was so upset”detailed the 25-year-old star.
“I said to myself that if this had an impact on my self-esteem it is because I think with the values conveyed by the culture and not with my own”she continued.
“A culture that has become so accustomed to an image of what a healthy female body looks like that is absolutely not real to many women…”
The singer, who is preparing for the release of her third studio album, ‘Familia’, which is scheduled for April 8, added that she was just “a single woman in her twenties in the middle of a ton of promo who wants to look good.”
“Today I got a new bikini, a cute outfit, I put on some lip gloss and I didn’t eat anything too heavy before I went to the ocean because I knew that would essentially consist of a kind of photoshoot”she explained, referring to her new animal print bikini.
The “Fifth Harmony” singer concluded her message revealing to her fans her wish: “to feel like she was 7 years old on the beach”, when she was “happy, silly, breathing hard, pretending to be a mermaid, FREE”.
And to add: “I’ve never had a worse time at the beach. I’m not at the point in my career yet where I don’t give a fuck.”
Camila Cabello’s celebrity pals were quick to offer their support in the comments section with words of love and comfort.
“You are a f***ing queen and you are perfect”wrote singer Kesha. “The patriarchy wins when you starve yourself… and for whom? NO. Thank you for the honesty????.” ‘Emily In Paris’ actress Lily Collins also echoed that sentiment, writing: “I understand you so much and I send you all my love and positive vibes ????.”
