10 Times Selena Gomez Got Real About Body Positivity — and We Loved It

Selena Gomez is no stranger to the sometimes-harsh criticism that comes with fame; however, the "Kill Em With Kindness" singer is known for her keen ability to rise above it, stay true to herself, and recognize when she needs a break from the limelight.

Following a hiatus earlier in 2016, Selena re-emerged at the American Music Awards with an even stronger message of self-love and acceptance that reminded us just how much we've idolized her body positivity over the years. Ahead, find 10 times she has inspired us with a few simple words!

"If you are able to look yourself in the mirror every day with the decisions that you make, that's where power starts."

"I hate twitter. I love fries."

"I'm learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful."

"Some days, I like what I see. Other days I'm like, 'I'm not even going to bother.'"

"I love being happy with me y'all #theresmoretolove."

"Because then the next day, it wasn't about how I gained weight, it was about how I embraced it. And that's just kind of my approach."

"To me, beauty is confidence. I think I'm pretty confident in the decisions and the choices I make in my personal life and career, but the same time I also let my fans know that, just like them, I have insecurities. I have moments when I don't feel good about myself. I think people can forget that, at the end of the day, I'm just a normal girl dealing with lots of the same issues as them."

"I have my own definition of what I think is beautiful and sexy. That's why, in the video [for "Good For You"], I didn't wear lingerie and I didn't have a guy in it. It's a woman in one of those raw, bare moments; she's vulnerable, and that's sexy."

"I feel like I have been doing this for so long that people are like, 'Be yourself, be yourself,' and I'm still trying to figure out who that is. I know I'm not perfect, but I know that I have a lot of people that support me and love me. I don't want to let anyone down so I just try to be the best I can be."

"I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see what's in here . . . If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken."
