Actress and singer Selena Gomez has amassed a huge fan base thanks to her impressive career in Hollywood. However, public scrutiny comes with fame, and the “Baila Conmigo” artist has faced plastic surgery rumors a few times throughout her career — including when she made a public joke onstage at the February 2022 SAG Awards. Keep reading to find out what Selena Gomez has said about plastic surgery speculation.
Has Selena Gomez Admitted to Getting Plastic Surgery Procedures?
While presenting the SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor for a Supporting Role, the former Disney Channel star was spotted barefoot onstage after she initially had broken a heel and stumbled on the red carpet, leading her to take off her shoes. Her Only Murders in the Building costar Martin Short accompanied her onstage and made a joke about receiving Botox after Selena agreed with him on being excited for the upcoming award winner.
“I’m excited too. Although, it’s hard for me to express the excitement because the Botox is fresh,” Martin said, to which the Wizards of Waverly Place alum replied, “Alright, mine too.”
Selena later admitted to getting Botox again in December 2023. While clapping back at fans who criticized her for her relationship with Benny Blanco, the former Disney Channel star responded to someone who made a crack about cosmetic procedures. “Remove your cheek fillers/implants. It’s messing with your brain,” the person wrote in an Instagram comment. Selena replied, “Hahahaha I’ve had Botox bb girl.”
Have Fans Accused Selena Gomez of Getting Plastic Surgery?
In March 2022, the Grammy Award nominee shared a cute Instagram selfie, debuting the new hair bangs she got.
“New hair, who dis?” she captioned the photo at the time. While most of her fans showered her with complimentary comments, a few others alleged that she had went under the knife and also Photoshopped her pictures.
“It looks like a nose job,” one Instagram user wrote, before adding, “New hair cut is nice, but [all] I could look at is her nose.”
“It’s her chin,” another claimed. “It’s not rounded anymore, it’s pointed. Do a side by side picture. Either she is using Photoshop or she has had her chin redone.”
Has Selena Gomez Responded to Negative Body Image Comments?
Selena, nevertheless, keeps her head up high when it comes to any form of public criticism. Just one month later, the Rare Beauty founder spoke out about body-shaming in a TikTok video.
“But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people bitch about it anyway,” she said her April 2022 clip. “‘You’re too small. You’re too big. That doesn’t fit.’ … Bitch, I am perfect the way I am.”
Previously, Selena opened up about body changes, which has sparked boob job speculation, in a November 2019 video cast interview with Giving Back Generation.
“I experienced that with my weight fluctuation for the first time,” she said at the time. “I have lupus and deal with kidney issues and high blood pressure, so I deal with a lot of health issues, and for me, that’s when I really started noticing more of the body image stuff … “For me, I really noticed when people started attacking me for that. That got to me big time. I think for me, that really messed me up for a bit.”
Despite struggling with the scrutiny on her body image, Selena ultimately concluded that she should appreciate her natural physique, noting, “That was one of the moments where I was like, I don’t have to be that 19-year-old body shape anymore because I’m not.”
