Living your life in the spotlight is no easy task, especially in today’s social media climate. People are constantly posting pictures of themselves on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Some of those pictures have been edited, some of them haven’t. Sometimes people leave nice comments, but there are also plenty of mean ones. People who are insecure about their own bodies go out of their way to put other people down. It’s a vicious cycle.
These celebs wanted to break the cycle. They clapped back against anonymous trolls and showed us how to be confident in our own skin.
After her appearance during the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show was criticized by the media, Lady Gaga took to Instagram.
She told the world, “I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions. Thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga”
