She’s ice cream chillin’ chillin’.

Selena Gomez assured fans she is feeling great after hitting back at body-shamers on Instagram.

The “Only Murders in the Building” star shared a throwback photo on Monday of herself with a soft smile while resting her chin in her hands.

“Mood,” she simply captioned the snap.

Many fans took the post to mean that Gomez, 30, was happy and doing well after being forced to address her weight gain.

“So you are happy? Glad to see that 🌟,” one follower commented.

“The unbothered mood.❤️,” a second wrote.

“this is the mood we always want for you!!” another added.

Other Instagram users flooded the comments section to speculate that the old photo could be a signal that new music is coming.

“Are u giving us some hints for SG3?” one person asked, with another adding, “I think SG3 is coming sooner than we expect.”

Gomez recently went on Instagram Live and acknowledged that she gained weight over the holiday season.

Gomez slammed haters in a video with her half-sister, Gracie, and told her fans, “We don’t care.”

“I’m a little bit big right now because I enjoyed myself during the holidays,” the “Same Old Love” singer said after attending the 2023 Golden Globe Awards in a strapless Valentino gown.

Gomez, who was with her 9-year-old half-sister, Gracie Teefey, during the livestream, then added, “But we don’t care” before breaking out into laughter.

This isn’t the first time Gomez has spoken out against body-shamers and been an advocate for self-love and healthy body image.

In August 2022, she shared on TikTok that people should be proud to show their “real stomachs.”

While wearing a one-piece bathing suit, the former “Wizards of Waverly Place” star mouthed the words, “I’m not sucking s–t in. Real stomachs is coming the f–k back, OK?”

Last year, Gomez shared that she wanted to see “real stomachs.”

And last April, Gomez hit back at critics while eating what she wanted.

“I be trying to stay skinny, but I went to Jack in the Box, and I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings and a spicy chicken sandwich,” she said in a video posted to TikTok.

“But honestly, I don’t care about my weight because people bitch about it anyway.”

Gomez said that trolls call her both “too small” and “too big” and claim her clothing “doesn’t fit,” but she noted that she ignores the haters.

“Bitch, I am perfect the way I am,” she said.

Gomez wasn’t always so strong in her mindset on body image and even once deleted Instagram because she couldn’t handle reading mean comments on her posts

She shared on “Good Morning America” last year that getting off the photo-sharing app “changed [her] life completely,” making her “happier” and “more present.”

Since returning to the app, she proudly posts many photos of herself flaunting her figure.

Now that she has returned to the app, Gomez, who boasts a staggering 370 million followers, frequently posts photos of herself in her daily life.

The pop star has also been a champion for mental health, sharing in April 2020 that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

“I felt a huge weight lifted off me when I found out,” she said on an Instagram Live at the time. “I could take a deep breath and go, ‘OK, that explains so much.’ There were all things that honestly should have taken me down. Every time I went through something, I was like, ‘What else? What else am I going to have to deal with?’”
