Camila Cabello is no longer at war with her body.
The 24-year-old singer took to TikTok to share a powerful message on how to embrace her blemishes. While sitting in her car after a race, Cabello expressed how grateful she is for her body.
“I was just running in the park, minding my own business, trying to get fit, trying to stay healthy. And I’m wearing a blouse that shows my belly, and I wasn’t tucking it in,” she begins as she looks down to her stomach. “Because I was running around and existing as a normal person who doesn’t mess around all the time. And I was like, ‘Damn.’ But then I reminded myself, being at war with your body is the last season.”
“I am grateful for this body that allows me to do what I have to do. We are real women with curves, cellulite, stretch marks and fat. And we have to admit it, darling,” she continues before saying goodbye singing Aretha Franklin “Something that I can feel” .
Last year, Cabello’s boyfriend, Shawn Mendes, revealed in an interview with British GQ how the positivity of her body changed her life.
“Some days I slept three hours, [because] I’d wake up two hours early just so I could exercise, “he recalled, before admitting that he often thought,” If you don’t exercise, you’ll lose fans. “
She added that her mindset changed after she began meditating, journaling and taking notes on how Cabello handled body pressure herself, saying: “[She’s] so strong, so clear and confident with her [body] and so articulate and empathetic with others. It really changed my opinion of mine. It really changed my life. ”
Earlier this year, Cabello and Mendes celebrated two years together.
“Happy anniversary Kuko ❤️”, the “Havana” singer captioned a series of photos of her and Mendes. “For more joy, more friendship and more love ❤️”.
Meanwhile, on Friday, Cabello also announced a new single, “Don’t Go Yet.” By sharing the cover, he revealed that it will be released on July 23.
