Camila Cabello thinks that “social media can be a good thing” when it comes to spreading positive messages.
The 24-year-old singer shared a video last month in which she insults her body shamers. She explained that she was proud of her body, with its “curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat.”
Now the musician speaks up again and says that while social media makes it easier for her critics to send her negative comments, she also has the opportunity to fight back and turn them into something positive. “I think social media can be a good thing. For me, for example, it’s very liberating when I can say about the video I posted about my body: ‘I have cellulite and stretch marks and I sometimes get weight, and that’s normal,'” Cabello said on the talk show ‘Lorraine’.
However, the ‘Havana’ hitmaker has to take regular breaks from the internet for the sake of her mental health, as she is expected to look happy and positive. Camila added: “Yesterday I had a day off and I thought to myself, ‘I can’t be on social media today. I just notice that my brain is working so fast, and sometimes you just have to take a break. I often have the feeling and I’m sure a lot of people feel, especially female pop stars or pop singers, that the story is somehow written for you.”
