Self-esteem responds to body-shaming comments after its American television debut

Self-Esteem spoke out against the shaming comments she saw online in response to her appearance The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The singer-songwriter (real name Rebecca Lucy Taylor) made her US television chat show debut on Monday (January 9), performing “I Do This All The Time” from her Mercury-nominated sophomore album “Prioritize Pleasure.”

Taking to Twitter after the episode aired and sharing the performance online, Taylor said she saw some negative comments regarding her body.

Self-Esteem started a series of tweets: “American people call me fat on the internet.” “That’s all but I really feel like it’s time here [in the US] In terms of societal cultural expectations of femininity.

“I’ve struggled with an eating disorder my whole life and I want to not panic anymore about my currently functioning body.”

And she continued, “I am no less talented or excellent because I am heavier than iron and so on. I may gain or lose weight, but I dream of a day when talking will not be a point.

“The thing is, it’s not hard to get really skinny. It just makes life a less beautiful thing. Sure, my inner wiring sees my reflection as something that needs to be ‘sorted out,’ but then I remember the beautiful versus less beautiful things that I shot and kept going. daily “.

During a previous conversation with Women’s Health UK (via metro), Taylor opened up about how she “suffered with an eating disorder” in the past, “as have most women I know.”

“It was a sad reality in my old squad [Slow Club] She added, “The skinnier you are, the more chances we’ll get.”

“With self-esteem, I have complete creative control, and it was important to me to celebrate my body: It’s not a plus size; it’s not small that might go up or down a stone. It’s a healthy size 14, and for some reason, that feels radical.”

Talking to NME In a 2021 Big Read cover interview, Taylor explained how her latest studio album deepened her experience of embracing “true self-acceptance and self-love”.

She continued, “It’s the answer to everything, but it’s still something you’re not supposed to do.”

“I go down this road a lot, and I get really, really bad. But then I think, no — I just stay in my little part of the world, my group, accept myself, love myself, and then make up my own silly little songs and do my silly little dances. And if someone can learn From that and moving it forward, I’m at least doing something?”

Britney Spears’ 1999 self-esteem recreated Rolling Stone cover of the interview in question, and explained how she wanted to present a “realistic” version of the iconic image.

“My idea was to recreate it, but the realistic thing is, I’ve got a sandwich next to me with a discounted Kermit sticker on it, and I don’t look like Britney Spears,” Taylor explained.

“I want to show, really original, how I look in bed. The truth is, women don’t look like that in bed.”

Meanwhile, Self Esteem announced three North American live shows for the month of April.

She’ll be embarking on a headlining tour of the UK and Ireland next month – you can find any remaining tickets here.
