Pop singer Bebe Rexha took to Instagram this past weekend with a mission: To show the world “what a real woman looks like on Instagram without photoshop.”
Rexha posted a bikini pic taken in San Juan, Puerto Rico, that showed off her body, but it is what wasn’t in the post that mattered more to her: retouching.
“I probably should of photoshopped my stomach and made it look flat. I probably should of photoshopped my legs to make them look thinner. I probably should of made myself look taller and Smoothed my legs. But I didn’t. Society can really fuck with you. Here is what a real woman looks like on Instagram without photoshop.”
The photo is just the latest way Rexha has spoken out about body positivity, a topic near and dear to her heart. In February, Rexha accused many top fashion designers of refusing to dress her for the Grammy Awards because she is a size 8.
“They said I was too big or fat,” she said. “I love my body… and I just want other girls to love their bodies.”
Rexha posted another body-centered photo over the weekend, but this one was focused on reproductive rights.
