In an attempt of trying not to please anyone other than herself, Selena Gomez is taking on the task of telling folks who have a problem with her body where they can go (straight to Hell, apparently). After people began attacking her weight following her appearance on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last week, Selena released a video explaining where her self-professed weight gain came from, and it’s something that WEL ALL can relate to.
According to E! News, when Selena arrived at the Golden Globes, the way she was holding onto herself initially sparked pregnancy rumors, which is always such a dumb reaction. Because as a woman wearing a form-fitting gown, she couldn’t just be trying to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, right? Or perhaps she was trying to protect her new kidney at all costs just in case former friend Francia Raisa attempted to reclaim her property. In any case, the people were definitely talking, and one of the main topics was Selena’s weight.

I hate that people make such a big fuss over Selena Gomez's weight. She's not even big in any way, shape, or form. Honestly, no matter what a woman looks like, people shouldn't body shame. Everyone is beautiful in their own way.

Well, Selena didn’t let what a few people had to say stop her from enjoying her night with her little sister Gracie Teefey. And now, almost a week after the ceremony, Selena released a video from the night that explains why she felt she was a little bit bigger at the Golden Globes.
The Only Murders in the Building star, a longtime advocate for body positivity, drew several body-shaming comments on social media after she walked the red carpet at the 2023 Golden Globes on Jan. 10. Selena, 30, later appeared on Instagram Live with her award show date, her little sister Gracie Elliot Teefey, 9, and spoke about gaining weight.
“I’m a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays,” she said, as seen in a video reshared on TikTok, before asking her sibling, “Right?”
Gracie replied, “Yeah,” after which Selena began laughing.
Oh, I understand, Selena, because the biggest gift I got from Santa was ten extra pounds, so I feel your pain. And I can guarantee you that the little bit of weight Selena believes she’s gained pales in comparison to her haters, who are still eating themselves into a food coma with leftover ham and Christmas cookies. How dare they judge anyone!
