Sam Smith took to his Instagram profile and uploaded a picture of him shirtless, embracing his body and inspiring body positivity by celebrating "#nakedday"
Sam Smith has been on a journey of body acceptance over the past few months. Taking to his Instagram handle, the genderqueer singer uploaded shirtless pictures of himself. The 'Too Good at Goodbyes' singer has been opening up about his struggles in accepting his body.
Now, it looks like the star is on his way to loving himself the way he is. On Wednesday, he took to his Instagram profile and uploaded a picture of him shirtless embracing his body and inspiring body positivity by celebrating "#nakedday". Below the picture, the 'Dancing With a Stranger' singer wrote, "For my entire life I have always hated being naked. Today I decided to have a naked day and spend the day in my room and watch TV and read and eat what I want and just celebrate this bod. It has been so empowering and wonderful and f**king fun. I think everyone should have a naked day once in a while and celebrate that beautiful human body of yours. Let it all hang out people."
Before this picture, on Monday, the singer uploaded another shirtless mirror selfie of himself sitting and captioned it: “Feeling bloated and gross after my flight so thought I’d post a mirror selfie of my sexy bloated boobies coz we are friends. Finally.”
Following this picture, the singer took to his Instagram stories and uploaded a video of him dancing in his underwear to Demi Lovato's 'Sorry not Sorry' and Camila Cabello’s 'OMG.' “Do the bloated dance with me,” Smith captioned his video.
Earlier this year, in February, the singer uploaded a shirtless picture of himself standing on the beach and in the caption he spoke about how he used to starve himself before every photo shoot and how he used to be very picky with his pictures. But now, he has decided to reclaim his body back and will stop trying to change it.
His caption then read: "In the past, if I have ever done a photo shoot with so much as a t-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally taken the picture down. Yesterday I decided to fight the f**k back. Reclaim my body and stop trying to change this chest and these hips and these curves that my mum and dad made and love so unconditionally."
Continuing, he added, "Some may take this as narcissistic and showing off but if you knew how much courage it took to do this and the body trauma I have experienced as a kid you wouldn’t think those things. Thank you for helping me celebrate my body AS IT IS @ryanpfluger I have never felt safer than I did with you. I’ll always be at war with this bloody mirror but this shoot and this day was a step in the right f**king direction."
After months of revealing he has started to accept his body, the singer is now inspiring others to love themselves and also celebrate naked day once in a while.
