Selena Gomez Shares Body Positive Message With Swimsuit Photos

Selena Gomez wouldn't want to be anybody else. 

In fact, the "Single Soon" singer is embracing the skin she's in, sharing a heartfelt message on body positivity while reflecting on an old photo. 

"Today I realized I'll never look like this again," Selena wrote on her Instagram Stories Jan. 22, alongside an old bikini shot of herself, before adding with a more recent snap: "I'm not perfect but I am proud to be who I am—sometimes I forget it's ok to be me." 

And this isn't the first time the 31-year-old has shared insight into her journey of self-acceptance, as she previously spoke candidly about no longer having a "teenager's body," but having a figure that was "attainable."

"None of the sample sizes were fitting, and that would make me feel embarrassed," the "Rare" singer told Fast Company of a recent shoot she'd had for a fashion magazine. "Although how unrealistic is it to expect a normal woman's body not to change?"

"So, yeah, not a model, never will be. And I think they're awesome, mind you, I just, I'm definitely not that."

Selena is certainly an inspiration for loving oneself, but she's not the only star to keep it real. Read on for more body positive quotes.
