Selena Gomez’s Bikini TikTok is the Body Positivity Inspo We Needed Today
We might already be brainstorming Halloween costume ideas and thinking about back-to-school shopping but it’s technically still bikini season, and Selena Gomez gave her TikTok fans some words of wisdom when it comes to serving in the sun for the remaining days of summer.
The singer (whose name almost wasn’t Selena, BTW) was looking breezy and beautiful as she lounged on a boat in a swimsuit in her most recent TikTok video, appropriately captioned “Vaca self.”
The singer lip-synched to a popular audio from YouTuber TashaKLive that starts with an off-camera voice saying, “suck it in.” Selena mouthed along to Tasha’s response, saying, “I’m not sucking sh*t in! Real stomachs are coming the f*ck back, okay?” This energy for the rest of the summer, please!
The message resonated with millions of Selena’s fans, who flocked to the comment section to share their love and support for the singer’s body-positive message. “You’re probably the best role model tbh, ily selena” said one enthusiastic TikTok user, while another sincerely wrote, “she’s the reason i’m so comfortable in my own skin.”
The general sentiment of the comment section can be summed up by this one response: “YES MISS GOMEZ U TELL EMMMM .” Even author Jenny Han (of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Summer I Turned Pretty fame) dropped in to write a simple “ily.”
And if her bold statement wasn’t already enough of a slay, Selena also brought some A+ swimsuit inspiration to the table with her pretty blue one-piece suit.
The singer filmed herself wearing the Gracie One Piece from her collaboration with La’Mariette, a swimsuit brand started by her friend and former personal assistant Theresa Mingus.
Selena has been enjoying a relaxed vacation in Italy (hence the chill boat vibes) and was even spotted with Italian producer Andrea Iervolino. About to Google “who is Andrea Iervolino?”
