She may be absolutely stunning, but even Camila Cabello struggled for a long time to accept the way she looks.
In an interview with Elle magazine, the 21-year-old singer shared how she eventually came to love herself – flaws and all. She shared:
“I did [feel pressure to look a certain way] when I was a little bit younger because I started when I was 15. There were times where I didn’t feel pretty.
Being in the public eye just makes it a little bit harder because you have to put on this confident, smiling face. I think every girl experiences that feeling of, ‘I don’t feel pretty enough. I don’t like this about my face. I wish I could change this about myself.’”
She went on to say that social media can feed into a person’s insecurities:
I think being bombarded with perfect images of people on social media gives you this kind of unrealistic, impossible bar to live up to.”
And Camila laid out all her beauty insecurities, one by one:
“I could name a lot of really dumb ones. I don’t like the right side of my face, I feel like my face looks different on the right side. Also my teeth—I have some really crooked teeth on the bottom. There’s one [tooth] that just juts out when I smile which is not fun.
But, whatever, it adds character!”
