Paparazzi pics are a part of the fame game, but Camila Cabello has had enough.

The "Havana" singer took to Instagram to write a lengthy message about how constant harassment by photographers — who sometimes even hide in bushes to snap pics of the acclaimed artist — has severely impacted her self esteem and started to affect her mental health.

She explained that every time she visits a specific beach club in Miami, she is hounded by photographers as soon as she checks in. "[They] get me in my bikini and everytime I've felt super vulnerable and unprepared — I've worn bikinis that were too small and paid no mind to how I looked, then saw pictures online and comments and been so upset."

Cabello went on to say that she tried to remind herself that her negative thoughts about her body were "the culture's thoughts" not her own, slamming society's dependence on photoshop and fad dieting and excessive exercising all to achieve what is publicly viewed as a "healthy woman's body" that is often far from realistic.

"I remind myself of this, listen to podcasts on intuitive eating, follow women who accept their cellulite, stretch marks, bellies, bloating, and weight fluctuations... and still," she added of her insecurities.

The "Worth It" artist continued, admitting no matter how much she "tried to pretend" they weren't there, she held her abs so tight and barely breathed or smiled because she was so self conscious about all of the paparazzi there snapping photos of her at every angle.

"I knew I looked 'good' in the pictures and thought I would feel accomplished," she noted, "yet I've never had a worse time at the beach. I felt the emptiness and sadness of our culture's thoughts that became my thoughts."

Cabello ended the message telling fans she is mourning "7 year old me at the beach" who didn't care what anyone thought of her and just had fun. "Happy, silly, breathing, pretending to be a mermaid, FREE."

Fans and friends immediately flooded the comments with praise for the young singer's decision to share some of her most vulnerable thoughts and feelings.

Emily in Paris actress Lily Collins chimed in with her own words of love, telling her: "I feel you and am sending all the love and positive vibes your way ❤️❤️."
