First things first – Kim Kardashian is a total babe… which makes us sad to hear that in a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the star came out to talk about her struggles with body dysmorphia.
While celebrating Kourtney Kardashian’s 38th birthday back in April, Kim was photographed by paparazzi on a Mexican beach and believes the photos are not a fair representation of her.
“I don’t get it, I literally don’t look like this,” she fretted in the episode. “It’s like literally giving me body dysmorphia. Like, I’m so insecure, I just can’t take it.”
Kim appeared physically upset about the photos, lashing out at the media’s unobtainable beauty standards.
“If they’re not perfect, people body-shame you and criticise you…for people to think that that’s okay is so frustrating. I’m going to literately go inside and start untagging myself in everything… I can’t have fun after seeing those pics, there’s other pics where I look so good and it’s just from a different angle.”
Sadly, body dysmorphia is a serious issue which can lead to severe eating disorders, so we’re sending lots of love and strength to Kim while she regains her body confidence.
Back in June, Kim accused people of Photoshopping the pictures to make her look bad during an appearance on The View:
“I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them. I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn’t worked out in about 12 weeks, I’d had two surgeries on my uterus. We documented that on the show. But I was already not feeling like myself and when people were like sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around, I was like ‘Okay, I’m going to get it together’ and I started working out with this bodybuilder girl.”
And if you ask us, some of these particular pictures do look a little suspicious… but we’re not experts!
It’s not great to hear poor Kim feeling down about herself, especially because we think Kim looks amazing either way – and we’d kill to have some curves like hers!
Oh and as for me you ask? …I’m just sitting here on the beach with my flawless body
