For the past few months, singer Sam Smith has been on a journey of body acceptance, occasionally posting photos of himself shirtless and speaking about his struggles accepting his own body image. But now, it seems that he is on the path toward self-love.
In a series of posts on his Instagram, Smith posed without a shirt on, saying that he was working to try and be better to himself. “Feeling bloated and gross after my flight so thought I’d post a mirror selfie of my sexy bloated boobies coz we are friends. Finally,” he wrote under one photo.
What followed was a number of posts to Smith’s Instagram Stories, showing the singer dancing to tracks like Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry” and Camila Cabello’s “OMG.” “Do the bloated dance with me,” he wrote over one of his videos.
In a recent interview on actress Jameela Jamil’s new Instagram TV series I Weigh, Smith opened up about his struggle with body positivity, revealing that he had liposuction at age 12 due to his insecurities. “I was so self-conscious that it was affecting my mood every day,” he told the actress. “Being 12 years old and having liposuction on your chest is quite a big deal.”
