90 Day Fiancé star Miona Bell slams comeback of controversial “heroin chic” trend, as she recalls having body issues when she was a 17-year-old.
90 Day Fiancé star Miona Bell shared a throwback photo from when she was 17 years old and wasn’t “healthy or happy” in her body. Miona, who is 24 years old, debuted on 90 Day Fiancé season 9 with now-husband Jibri Bell, 28 years old. Miona from Serbia met Jibri, the front man of his Black Serbs band, when he was touring her country. Miona expected to stay in Los Angeles when she moved to America on her K-1 visa but had to stay in Jibri’s parents’ South Dakota house instead. Miona faced mean comments from Jibri’s mom, but she stayed put and eventually moved out and got married to Jibri in Joshua Tree.
Niš native Miona faced backlash from 90 Day Fiancé fans when old photos of her were discovered in which she looked very different from what she looks now. Miona was accused of blackfishing, a claim that she never addressed during her time on the show. It was Miona’s throwback photos that made fans question her authenticity, but she’s also using her old pics to talk about sensitive subjects such as body image issues. Especially from a time she claims she felt unhealthy and unhappy in her body. Miona reposted an Instagram story from @minsooky, which addressed an article about “Heroin chic” coming back into fashion because of celebrities altering their body shapes and sizes to slim down dramatically. 90 Day Fiancé celeb Miona wrote, “No thanks. We are not going through this bs no more.” She added, “my body is not a trend.”
Miona Reveals How She Looked At 17 Years Old In Throwback Pic
In her next Instagram story, Miona shared an unseen photo of herself from around 2015. Miona smiled sweetly for the camera with her hair pin-straight, looking nothing like the hairstyles she wears in 2022. Miona wore a cream-colored lacy corset and white jeans and red pumps with big eyelashes and full lips. Miona may have been smiling in the photo, but she confessed she was 17 years old in it and 5’3 tall while her weight was “ONLY 90 pounds.” 90 Day Fiancé star Miona declared, “never again.” She wrote, “I wasn’t healthy or happy,” in conclusion.
Miona’s picture may look pretty to some, but to Miona it serves as a reminder of difficult times. She’s never spoken about it with TLC viewers, but Miona seems to have been struggling to embrace herself, especially when she was a young woman. There might have been times when Miona couldn’t embrace herself for who she is, and yet put on a smile when she was being photographed at the moment. With the Y2K trends returning, the trend of idolizing thinness is probably making a comeback, which has made people like 90 Day Fiancé‘s Miona look back at how they used to be years ago, and how they might have not embraced body positivity at the time.
While Miona is making thousands of dollars by selling her ponytail extensions online, her customers have said she’s making them feel pretty and even helped some regain their crowning glory. Miona has been posting more and more photos and videos without her makeup on Instagram, and she also shows what her natural hair looks like when she gives demos for her wigs. Miona has been in the U.S. for a year and managed to make 90 Day Fiancé fans proud by already buying herself an expensive new car with her own money. Reality TV star Miona believes in enjoying the moment, and as she celebrates her successes, she must look back and feel proud of what her 17-year-old self has achieved and become.
