  • Selena Gomez attended the Golden Globes 2023 with her sister, Gracie Elliott Teefey
  • The singer-actress said she is a "bit big" because she enjoyed herself during the holidays
  • The "Rare" singer told fans that she doesn't care about her size

Selena Gomez doesn't care what body-shamers say about her figure.

Gomez, 30, received criticism on social media over her appearance after she walked the 2023 Golden Globes red carpet last week wearing a strapless Valentino Gown, according to Page Six.

The body positivity advocate took to Instagram Live after the award show to address her critics.

"I'm a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays," Gomez said in a video shared on TikTok, before turning to her sister, Gracie Elliott Teefey, 9, who joined her at the event. "Right?"

After Gracie appeared to agree with her, the singer said, "But we don't care," before bursting into laughter.

Gomez's black velvet Valentino Haute Couture gown featured voluminous purple sleeves, a plunging off-the-shoulder neckline and a thigh-high split. She accessorized the dress with diamond drop earrings from De Beers and styled her hair in a high ponytail.

After photos of her look for the event surfaced, some social media users pointed out her weight gain and claimed that she looked older than her actual age.

"The double chin is chinning," one commented. Another claimed, "She looks gross."

"Wtf she isn't 65 years old. She must change her stylist," a third user wrote. "Is she 40?" another asked.

"I see she needs a new stylist and [to] stop with the filler," a fifth person suggested.

But fans were quick to defend the "Rare" singer, saying she looked gorgeous at the 2023 Golden Globes and blaming the unflattering gown and angle of the photos.

"She looks so beautiful and natural!! It's honestly disgusting how y'all are hating on her, I really thought people changed," one commented. Another added, "Such a bad angle but still stunning."

"She looks just as good as a few days ago. I don't get the hate y'all feel for this woman. Like out of everyone in the world and every woman in the industry... She looks pretty. Personality wise, you might not like her, but as far as we know, she's a normal human being bruh," a third person wrote.

"She's stunning, but that dress...someone get her a new stylist," another wrote.

"She doesn't look bad at all," a fourth person added. "Gorgeous as always," another fan commented.

It wasn't the first time Gomez defended herself from bashers. In April 2022, the "Only Murders in the Building" star clapped back at body-shamers on TikTok and told them being "skinny" wasn't worth missing out on her favorite food because "people b--ch about [her weight] anyway," according to Page Six.

"B--ch, I am perfect the way I am," she added.

Hulu racked up Emmy nominations for its comedy series "Only Murders in the Building," starring (L-R) Martin Short, Selena Gomez and Steve Martin
