Shaila Dúrcal is a beloved public figure and admired artist, who in her own right earned a place in the music world. However, each step taken by the daughter of the late Rocío Dúrcal is analyzed by everyone.
The comments have been going on for a while and although the interpreter of "Convénceme" had already mentioned that her figure changed. In an interview, the artist stopped haters who criticize her for their weight once and for all .
"I'm round, but it doesn't matter. I'm very healthy," the singer told the Mexican television show "Ventaneando" bluntly and directly.
"I don't care if they criticize me because they have no idea what happened every day," added the 40-year-old Spaniard.
And it is that as she herself explained previously, her body underwent changes and she experienced a weight gain as a consequence of them. The first is that the famous woman quit smoking, and the second and most decisive was the incident she suffered approximately two years ago where part of her finger had to be amputated.
"I have had an accident [when I lost a phalanx of the finger], I have stopped smoking. I have barely two years of my accident; then, you recover emotionally because of course it gives you depression; of course it gives you a drop, it is normal" Dúrcal explained to the broadcast cameras.
"I have a thyroid problem too," said the Madrilenian.
Dúrcal is not the only one who has had to defend his figure. Celebrities such as Adamari López , Danna Paola , Alicia Machado or Victoria Ruffo have been noted for their high and low weight.
"My self-esteem is always high, I feel good," said Shaila at the show and ended with a very powerful message regarding that last topic, "I love myself very much even if I am skinny or chubby."
In April, Dúrcal celebrated her natural beauty and highlighted her look with some white hair on her hair, which the 192,000 followers they have on Instagram applauded. That post got a lot of likes from her fans.
In October 2019, Shaila made several statements during her intervention in Bertín Osborne's Spanish program "Mi Casa es la tuya", where she also acknowledged that she had gained 40 pounds.
"I do not care, I do not care, I gain health," he said. The artist showed a joking attitude towards the weight gain she has experienced, but also acknowledged that it had not been a good year for her and that she also fell into bad eating habits, this when questioned about her physical change and being compared to a version of herself from years ago, when she looked very thin.
"Yes, but it was the time when I was happiest. I had turned my life around, because I played sports and was learning to eat, which is why I have always suffered. And all the criticism affected me and I fell back on the bad habits. Also, I have a very big thyroid problem. It has been a difficult year, "he explained.
In addition to quitting smoking, Shaila suffers from hyperthyroidism, the reason for her overweight. However, thanks to the support of her family and especially that of her husband Dorio Ferreira , whom she married in 2008, she has made the interpreter not fall into depression.
