In the video, Gomez shared that taking the Lupus medication has caused her to gain weight, she said: "When I'm taking it, I tend to hold a lot of water weight, and that happens very normally. When I'm off of it, I tend to lose weight,"
She added: "I just wanted to say and encourage anyone out there who feels any sort of shame for exactly what they're going through, and no one knows the real story. I just want people to know that you're beautiful, and you're wonderful. Yeah, we have days where maybe we feel like sh*t, but I would rather be healthy and take care of myself. My medications are important, and I believe that they're what helps me."
The actress went on to talk about how she never want to be a model, nor have a model body, she stated: "Not a model, never will be. And I think they're awesome, mind you. I'm just definitely not that. I just wanted to tell you I love you guys, and thanks for supporting me and understanding. And if not, go away, cause honestly I don't believe in shaming people for their bodies or anything."
Back in 2015, Gomez opened up about being diagnosed with Lupus, which is a disease that that occurs when your body's immune system attacks your own tissues and organs.
