Camila Cabello Says It Was ‘Really Liberating’ to Talk About Her Cellulite and Stretch Marks

Camila Cabello is feeling free after she called out her body shamers in a TikTok last month.

Making a Statement

The 24-year-old singer had shared a video where she celebrated her body — “curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat” and all after being previously criticized for going for a run in a top that showed her stomach “and I wasn’t tucking it in,” Cabello said in the TikTok.

In a recent interview where she discussed the power of social media, the three-time Grammy Award nominee said that she’s happy she spoke out.

“I think that social media can be a good thing,” Cabello told U.K. morning show host Ross King on Lorraine. “For me, like posting about that video that I posted about my body and being like, ‘I have cellulite and stretch marks and gain weight sometimes and that’s normal’ — having messages like that feels really liberating.”

Using Social Media to Spread Positivity

Cabello tries to make her social media a true representation of herself.

“The thing I’m thankful for social media is that it lets me kind of take control of my own narrative and actually share who I am, as opposed to people telling other people who they think I am,” she said. “That definitely makes me feel better because the other thing is just really frustrating.”

And her boyfriend Shawn Mendes fully supports her.

“[She is] so strong, so clear and confident with her [body] and so articulate and empathetic about other people’s and it really changed my view of mine,” Mendes, 22, told British GQ in November.

Cabello’s honest approach to social media and her body has made an impact — her TikTok about her body has more than 4.7 million likes and 37,200 comments.
