The idea of the “perfect body” that has long been a paradigm of fame, is being questioned by many celebrities who have joined the movement of a “body positivity”. Camila Cabello —who was criticized for what many said was a weight gain— turned to Tik Tok to give a lesson in self-love.
The controversy broke out after Camila and her boyfriend Shawn Mendes —who were in New York last week to attend the program The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon— uploaded a story on TikTok that went viral for the snug orange dress in which Camila appears singing to her fans, and that according to many of them made her look a few extra pounds.

“What happened to her?”, “She got a lot of weight”, “She doesn’t look like she”, “Looks like Kim Kardashian pregnant”, “I don’t like how she looks”, were some of the negative comments they made in the post.

Neither short nor lazy, Shawn Mendes supported his girlfriend by sharing a series of photographs on his Instagram account in which he obviously celebrates the beautiful and curvy figure of the Cuban-American with two affectionate hearts of the same color of Camila’s dress “🧡🧡”.
