Camila Cabello’s Weight Gain Spark Mixed Reactions from Fans - The Singer’s Response
Camila Cabello's weight gain caused fans to speculate that she let go of herself. However, the singer knows better than to listen to unsolicited opinions.
Camila Cabello has emerged among the famous pop artists in previous years. She is actively pursuing her career and recently joined the hit television singing contest "The Voice."
The "Senorita" songstress started her stint as a coach on the NBC show for its second season. Being part of a reality competition is nothing new for the singer-songwriter as she began her career on "The X Factor" in 2012 and previously appeared on "The Voice" as a celebrity adviser.
Fans are undoubtedly anticipating her screen time on "The Voice." However, some of her supporters are more interested in Cabello's weight gain than her craft. The topic is often sensitive to discuss, but Cabella already knows how to address such comments.
Discussions of Camila Cabello's Weight Gain
As a public figure, it is no surprise that candid photos of Cabello emerge in tabloids and other news outlets. In previous months, the singer's photographs from different vacations appeared online, each with descriptions of her clothing.
In June 2021, the "Havana" songstress was spotted hitting the Florida shores with her boyfriend, Shawn Mendes. Then 24, Cabello sported a blue two-piece swimsuit that showed her midsection.
A year later, paparazzi shots of Cabello on another beach trip surfaced on the internet. The singer opted for a blue bikini as she hit the waves on a Miami beach with her friends.
She flaunted her curves again in July 2021 while soaking up the sun's heat with a mystery man. The duo and their friends seemed to enjoy the beach in Coral Gables.
A little over a year later, Cabello graced the coast of Capri, Italy, with her presence, wearing an orange two-piece swimwear that revealed much skin.
With all the photos taken, fans could not help but notice Cabello's apparent weight gain and give their unsolicited opinions. One person tweeted:
"No offense, but when you've built a career shaking your scantily clad body all over music videos, the internet, and anywhere/everywhere else you could get people to watch if you then gain weight, you should expect people to focus on your body just as you asked them to all along."
Other internet users claimed Mendes even left Cabello because of her physical changes. The pair broke up in 2021, causing fans to speculate that Shawn Mendes was attracted to her, partly for her figure, before the pandemic. However, when she put on extra pounds, he lost interest.
Camila Cabello Tries to Be in Harmony with Her Body
Cabello is well aware of all the online photographs and has since shared her sentiments with the negative comments. According to Cabello, she cannot tuck her stomach in and be at her best posture all the time while enjoying her daily activities.
She posted a video on TikTok, noting that she is, like all other women, someone with curves, fat, stretch marks, and cellulite. Nevertheless, she is grateful for her body for allowing her to enjoy life.
Admittedly, she is not comfortable with her photographs candidly taken on vacations but knows that it comes with being a celebrity.
"When I start to compare myself to people that I see on Instagram, which literally a couple [of] days ago, I had the same kind of cycle of thoughts," she said. "I was just like, 'I'm just going to delete Instagram and TikTok,' the apps from my phone, and that helps me."
However, she hopes that her real photos online help others realize that celebrities don't always look camera-ready and also feel insecure about their appearance.
