“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar,” the Rare Beauty founder wrote on Thursday. “I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I’m proud of that.”

Gomez congratulated her friend Theresa Marie Mingus, co-founder of La Mariette, for launching a line “whose message is just that…all bodies are beautiful.”
Gomez was praised by her friends and famous followers.
“You are so incredible,” wrote JWoww.
“Omg I love you,” added Mingus.
Bang Bang Tattoo, where Gomez has gotten inked, commented, “Scar looks like just another beautiful tattoo.”
“Beauty,” Lily Aldridge said.
