Selena Gomez doesn't care about critics

Selena Gomez doesn't care about critics

Selena Gomez "could care less" about her critics.

The 22-year-old singer, who recently laughed off speculation she gained weight, saying "there's more to love," reportedly hit back at a "disgusting" Instagram user for urging her to "work out" and "please stop eating junk food."

The 'Come & Get It' hitmaker responded: "IM IN the business and I could care less about what 'they' or you said I should look like. I don't need to do anything other than love myself, take care of my work, fans, family and friends...And I do work out. It's not your place to tell anyone what they should or should not do."

Screen grabs of the heated exchange, which was later deleted, appeared online today (01.05.15), but the brunette beauty's representatives have yet to confirm whether she was really involved.

A source recently insisted Selena, who blasted critics on the social media site last month for posting negative comments about her body after pictures surfaced of her frolicking on the beach in a skimpy pink bikini near Puerto Vallarta in Mexico, is very happy with her figure.

The insider told PEOPLE magazine: "[Her curves] have never really been an issue for her. She's in a great place. She's happy with herself."
