In the Instagram world, it’s not uncommon for celebs to photoshop their own photos. However there’s one star who refuses to apologize for her body “imperfection” and her fans are absolutely loving it.
Jessie J, the British singer between such pop-hits like “Domino,” and “Bang Bang” took to Instagram to share a cheeky beachside photo with her 7.7 million followers.
In the photo, the 30-year-old star looks out to the ocean in a black bikini with mesh cover up, letting the wind catch her hair. It’s picture perfect moment, but Jessie J was quick to shut down any haters who would even think of body shaming her.
“Took ages to hairspray my hair like that. My shadow is my mood,” Jessie jokes in the caption. “Oh, and for those telling me I have cellulite. I know. I own a mirror.”
The photo immediately received praise for the star’s decision to ditch the Photoshop in favour of showing off her body as is.
“LOVE that you didn’t photoshop your pic to hide the cellulite!” one fan wrote. “I struggle so much with mine constantly worrying I’m not pretty enough bc of all the “perfect” photoshopped bodies all over social media. Need more ppl showing off real natural bodies to help get rid of the stigma.”
“Awesome, our booties are twins,” another commented. “I like myself a little more now.”
This isn’t the first time the singer has spoken out about accepting her body.
In 2016, she shared a snap of her derrière, writing, “I could write a deep and meaningful quote to make this less of a ‘pic of my bum’ but that’s all it is. No deep quote, just a pic of my bum. I have been working on my body recently. When I can be bothered to. To gain weight and to be stronger, fitter, healthier and to feel good!”
The journey, she continued, meant “accepting my cellulite but doing something about it instead of just moaning about it!”
“A bit of self love and celebrating the body you’re in is positive and needed!”
