Camila Cabello isn’t letting body shamers get her down.
The 24-year-old star took to social media on Friday (July 16) to share an inspiring message about body positivity while showing off her bare stomach after going on a run.
“I was just running in the park minding my own business trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy. And I am wearing a top that shows my belly,” the former Fifth Harmony member begins her TikTok post, panning down to show off a short black top and workout pants.
“I wasn’t tucking it in, because I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn’t tuck it in all the time,” she continues with sass. “And I was like, ‘Damn.’ But then I reminded myself being at war with your body is so last season.”
Cabello goes on to say she’s “grateful” for having a body that “lets me do what I need to do. We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat. And we got to own that, baby.”
The singer concludes the post — captioned “I luv my body” — by belting a line from Aretha Franklin’s “Something He Can Feel” while running her hand across her tummy.
This isn’t the first time the “Señorita” singer has shut down body shamers. In 2019, she penned an empowering letter on social media while celebrating the two-year anniversary of her hit song “Havana.” In her note, Cabello reminded “young girls growing up in an airbrushed world” that many of the photos posted online are edited.
