The 24-year-old singer took to TikTok to share a powerful message about embracing her imperfections. While sitting in her car after a run, Cabello expressed how grateful she is for her body.
"I was just running in the park, minding my own business trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy. And I am wearing a top that shows my belly, and I wasn't tucking it in," she begins as she pans down to her stomach. "Because I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn't tuck it in all the time. And I was like, 'Damn.' But then I reminded myself, being at war with your body is so last season."
"I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do. We are real women with curves and cellulite and stretch marks and fat. And we gotta own that, baby," she continues before signing off by singing Aretha Franklin's "Something He Can Feel."
"Some days I would have three hours of sleep, [because] I’d get up two hours early just to be able to work out," he recalled, before admitting that he often thought, "If you don’t work out, you’re going to lose fans."
He added that his mindset changed after he started 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 about other people’s. It really changed my view of mine. It really changed my life."
