Earlier today, Gomez posted a video montage of herself and some pals on a boat in Sydney — set to the soundtrack of Alvvays' Antisocialites cut "Dreams Tonite."
The clip was also accompanied by the singer's musings on "the beauty myth." She reflected on her decision to eschew the "endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred" facing many women in favour of taking care of herself.
Read her heartfelt message and watch the sappy, sepia-toned video clip below.
The beauty myth- an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of flawless beauty. I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails. 🌈💜
