If you follow Bella Thorne on Instagram, you know that the woman is suffering from a serious clothing allergy.
She just can’t seem to keep any textiles on her body, and we certainly don’t blame her.
After all, she’s crazy hot and her comfort in front of the camera has helped her amass an astonishing 16 million followers.
We thought we’d seen just about every inch of Bella (ya know, for research), but her latest pic is revealing even by her standards.
That’s Bella in the new issue of GQ: Mexico.
She posted the photo on Instagram, along with a lengthy caption about body positivity and the importance of overcoming insecurities:
“I specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything. That’s natural & that’s human,” Bella wrote.
“You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime someone looks in the mirror they simply don’t see what everyone else sees,” she added.
“Know that it’s completely normal to feel insecure and it’s accepted. honestly I wish everyone talked more about their insecurities so more people in the world could know they aren’t alone. That it’s ok.”
She concluded on a triumphant note, with a sternly-worded message to the haters:
“F-ck it I’m here to tell you that’s right I’m not F-CKING PERFECT. IM A HUMAN BEING AND IM REAL. So hip hop your asses over the fence and GET OVER IT.”
Well, Bella doesn’t really strike us as the insecure type, but it’s nice to see such a positive message about … sigh, do we have to do this again?
Does every risqué Instagram photo have to be couched in a message of body positivity now?
At this point, it would be more refreshing if a celebrity just said, “Thought I looked hot here. Enjoy!”
Don’t get us wrong – it’s important that young people get the message that everyone has flaws, and the more they’re able to accept their imperfections, the happier they’ll be.
That said, Bella posting a photo like this along with a lengthy message about self-acceptance is like Tom Brady delivering a stirring speech about how it’s okay to feel insecure about your ability to throw 60-yard touchdown in the clutch.
Easy for you to say, Tom! [weeps gently, throws tissue at wastebasket, misses by 8 feet]
Again, we think Bella had the best of intentions here, but posting a smoking hot photo of yourself and then patting yourself on the back for your bravery in doing so is some next-level narcissism.
This post should be in the Millennial Dictionary next to the word “humblebrag.”
But hey, at the end of the day, we’re just happy Bella’s not banging Scott Disick anymore.
Now, that’s something to take pride in!
