Good for you, Karrueche! Thanks for posting a real, unretouched photo to your Instagram on June 18, showing a fit, sexy woman with stretch marks! I’m happy you spoke out — here’s why!

Karrueche Tran, model and girlfriend of Chris Brown, is standing up for women’s bodies and I love it. She posted this picture of a woman’s butt on Instagram on June 18, writing: “this is me.. I’ve got a tiny little booty w stretch marks.. there’s nothing wrong with the way God made us ❤️.” I love her inspirational message! Don’t you?

Karrueche Tran On Body Shaming — There’s Nothing Wrong With Us

I give Karrueche props for admitting that she isn’t perfect, that she has “flaws” — but who doesn’t? Her picture and caption sends a great message to young girls: accept yourself as you are.

Karrueche isn’t saying that is her in the photo, but she is saying she sees herself in this woman.

Karrueche admits she has a small butt, but even being “skinny” doesn’t mean you’re immune to things like cellulite and stretch marks. Stretch marks occur when the skin stretches, so many women get them while pregnant. You may also see stretch marks if you gain a lot of weight or muscle in a short amount of time. Sometimes body builders have stretch marks!

These body “imperfections” shouldn’t be criticized — they should be celebrated. If a woman has them on her stomach, it’s probably from giving birth to a baby — that’s an amazing thing!

Stretch Marks Should Be Celebrated

I’m happy Karrueche posted this photo.

In our world, young girls see so many images of celebrities, many of which are photoshopped, or the celebrity has had some sort of plastic surgery to make them look “better.” It’s important to celebrate our bodies for all they can do for us, and not have them take away our self-esteem and self-worth.

Thank you Karrueche, for starting the conversation.

Seriously? When you can use something like striafade and just get rid of them? I understand that women should be comfortable with their flaws, but it’s much more empowering to improve yourself. Yes, that means mentally, physically, and in every way possible.

Honestly this made me feel better because I know now that I’m not the only one. I often feel so insecure with girls especially models who have flawlessly perfect bottoms. Thanks Karrueche for empowering women.

You’re taking her comment “this is me” too literally. She isn’t saying that’s literally her, that’s not a picture of her. She should’ve said “this is like me”. Again, the picture isn’t of her.

i understand that it may not have been her intention to take credit for the image, however, although the article clears up that it isn’t a picture of karrueche, she was very misleading when posting the image if all she said was, “this is me”. let’s be serious, she totally insinuated that it was a picture of herself and that’s unbelievably uncool.

kae keep loving herself , while some of you will be ashamed of just being yourselves ,wearing thick make up and cosmetic creams to hide who ya’ll truly are,for just a few hrs to be notice then have to go back to the reality of the two options to either wash them off or go to bed with it on so you won’t be a surprise to anyone in the morning

It sounds like you made that comment, because you get no attention at home or work… and look like you got it based on your replies. Next time make sure you read your comments, because they really do reveal a lot about a person. Dido!!!! to the persons reply before me, because you need JESUS…right now! if you want to survive in your everyday living.

she can do whatever

Posted at 5:04 PM on June 20, 2014  

if she feels to be a prophete, it’s her good right. she thinks, she’s a role model already. It has nothing to do with the fact that I don’t like her. she’s ignoring a lot of things. deep inside is not her focus, surface is her thing. but there she is not alone. we have people who bleech and go through diets while they say perfection is a disease.
