“But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people pick on it anyway,” she added.

“Meh, heh, meh, meh,” she continued. “Bitch, I’m perfect just the way I am. Moral of the story? Goodbye.”

In a 2019 interview, the actress said she began struggling with “body image” shortly after she was diagnosed with lupus and had to undergo an emergency kidney transplant in 2017. She began taking medication for the chronic autoimmune disease, which caused the her weight fluctuates.
“I really noticed when people started attacking me about it,” Gomez said during the interview with friend Raquel Stevens on “Giving Back Generation” video podcasts.
Gomez said the criticism about her weight “got me really good” and “really confused me for a while,” but she eventually realized “this is just my truth.”
“I’m on the rise,” he added. “It depends what’s going on in my life.”
