Gigi Hadid Gets Emotional As She Opens Up About Bodyshaming
Last year, Gigi Hadid posted an open letter about body shaming on her Instagram after Fashion Week, and now she's spoken out again about the pressures. Read the full story at MTV.co.uk.
She's one of the world's most beautiful supermodels, an absolute mega babe, and has a pretty good looking Zayn Malik shaped boyfriend to match. Who knew that Gigi Hadid also has trouble with body shaming and accepting herself for who she is?
Lets throwback to August last year, when Gigi Hadid posted an emotional open letter which admitted she let all that bodyshaming negativity get to her, but that she was proud of her body.
In the letter she wrote: "Yes I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs…your mean comments don't make me want to change my body… If you don't like it, don't follow me, don't watch me, cause I'm not going anywhere. If I didn't have the body I do, I wouldn't have the career I do. I love that I can be sexy. I'm proud of it."
Now, she's only gone and landed the September cover of Vogue, and has spoken up in the magazine's podcast about body image. After a month of modelling at Fashion Weeks around the world, she admitted she was feeling 'overwhelmed' when she wrote that emotional post.
"That was the journal entry that I thought would help people and let people know that they can speak up and defend themselves", she explained.
"Everyone is affected by the pressures that come from being on social media. We're all human. I'll never say that it doesn't affect me…I'll post a picture and one person will say I'm too fat and three comments down someone's calling me anorexic. So it happens to everyone. We all go through it and no one's alone in that for sure."
Oh Gigi, we're falling in love with you all over again.
She admitted she was getting rather emotional when thinking about all the support she received from that post. "What also really touched me that week was my friends that came to me that hadn't done so before," she said. "Everyone from my friends that are considered plus-size models to Victoria's Secret Angels who are often shown a lot of hate for being too skinny. Neither are too much this or too much that — they're bodies."
Well, she is just QUEEN.
