Cellulite is normal, fat is normal: Camila Cabello's message for young girls

Singer Camila Cabello has penned an empowering letter to promote body positivity among young girls, who are growing up in an "airbrushed" world. Cabello, who was celebrating the two-year anniversary of her hit single "Havana" on Twitter, was targeted by messages criticising her body.

In response to the comments made on her picture, the singer posted a letter on her Twitter page on Saturday reminding people that most of the pictures shared on social media platforms are edited. "Honestly first thing I felt was super insecure just imagining what these pictures must look like, oh no! My cellulite! Oh no! I didn't suck in my stomach. But then I was like...

"Of course there are bad pictures, of course there are bad angles, my body's not made of rock, or all muscle, for that matter, but the saddest part of young girls growing up in an airbrushed world is they're seeking a perfection that's not real," Cabello wrote. The "Senorita" singer said it is important to change the unrealistic view of a woman's body.

"I'm writing this for girls like my little sister who are growing up on social media. They're constantly seeing photoshopped, edited pictures and thinking that's reality, and everyone's eyes get used to seeing airbrushed skin, an suddenly they think that's the norm. It isn't. "It's fake. and fake is becoming the new real. We have a completely unrealistic view of a woman's body. Girls, cellulite is normal, fat is normal. It's beautiful and natural. I won't buy into bulls**t today," she added.
