Appearing on Instagram Live recently, Chloe Bailey from the Atlanta R&B duo Chloe x Halle couldn't help but shed some tears as she opened up about becoming comfortable with her body image in response to some commenters hating on her eye-catching posts.
Referencing one video in which she's in her underwear and burning sage in her bedroom, Chloe seemed a little frustrated and confused about why people were debating her butt when she was only trying to "spread positive vibes."
"I didn’t even really notice you all would talk about my a** because I was like, 'Okay, I’m just walking in from one second, two seconds,'" she said. "And I feel like I’ve shown my a** more than I have with that like if you look at our performance videos."
The 22-year-old singer continued, admitting that she's never really looked at herself as a "sexual being." "So, when I see all the uproar about my posts and stuff I'm a bit confused," she said.
Now, Chloe is learning to truly love herself and encouraged all women to try and do the same: "Don’t change who you are to make society feel comfortable."
Since launching her personal IG near the start of 2021, separate from the Chloe x Halle joint account, she's amassed over 1.4 million followers and has become a trending Twitter topic on more than one occasion thanks to provocative clips like this silhouette challenge.
Fans and celebs across Twitter, including Wale, Halle Berry, Desus Nice and Scottie Beam, showed unwavering support and wanted all the smoke with those who caused Chloe's tears.
