"People can often look at these pictures of celebrities and want to change their diet or aspire to that," the pop star said. 

She further continued as per PEOPLE, "I thought it was important for me to be like, "Hey, this isn't necessarily something to aspire to. I might look a certain way, but I've had a really s**ty time, and that's not a good way to be." Camila said she struggles with body image issues, and "it's an ever-present struggle, and I think a lot of women feel that way."
