Camila Cabello Opens Up About How Paparazzi Bikini Photos Affect Her Body Image

On Saturday, April 2, Camila Cabello shared a long Instagram post about how the constant paparazzi snaps of her in bikinis has been exhausting her and affecting how she feels about her body. Cabello’s most recent run-in with the celebrity photographers happened at a beach in Miami on Saturday, April 2, and she was not happy with the images.

Cabello began by saying she gets “papped” whenever she goes out and it has made her feel “super vulnerable and unprepared.”

In addition to the photos not presenting what she sees as her best self, she can also read anonymous internet comments about how she looks. Though Cabello tries her best to set those comments aside, it’s easy to get caught up in the unrealistic cultural “image of what a ‘healthy’ woman’s body looks like that is completely not real for a lot of women.”

She continued, “I remind myself of this, listen to podcasts on intuitive eating, follow women who accept their cellulite, stretch marks, bellies , [sic] bloating and weight fluctuations… and still…I’m a single woman in her 20s in the middle of a sh*t ton of promo and i [sic] want to feel like I look ‘good’.”

The photos from Miami ended up changing how she behaved during her latest outing. She bought a new bathing suit and “didn’t eat anything too heavy” and was super conscious of her figure to the point where it spoiled her day. She said she “never had a worse time at the beach.”

“I wanted to talk about this because we see pictures of women and praise them for looking good, for looking fit or ‘healthy,’” Cabello continued. “But what is health if you are so fixated on what your body looks like that your mental health suffers and you can’t enjoy your life?”

Great question.
