Jana Kramer is opening up about her internal debate about cosmetic surgery.
The 37-year-old country singer posted an explanation on Instagram, beginning, “Time to let you all in on a deeper level. I have been insanely hesitant on sharing this because, honestly, I’m afraid of the reactions. I guess with as much as I do share you wouldn’t think I would have a problem oversharing, but this goes deep for me. I considered not saying anything but then it just would have felt inauthentic, and well, you might be noticing a difference. So here goes. After many years of consideration I have decided to get a breast augmentation and lift. I want to be open about WHY. First off, because “I” want to. That right there should be enough, but I feel like I need to explain the “I” part.”
“I’ve considered breast augmentation before but it was never for ‘me.’ With everything that happened in my marriage I thought I would be loved more, sexier, or quite frankly he would choose me. But the better part of me knew, that was a distraction,” she added. “It still bothered me though. And after having babies, I had a new set of insecurities with my body. Things didn’t go back to normal, and I carry a lot of embarrassment when I’m undressed. I don’t want to feel that way anymore. That was the ‘click’ that showed I should follow through. Before it was what I thought someone else wanted. Now it’s simple. ‘I’—and that’s a very ‘capital’ ‘I’”
Jana continued, “Bottom line, I’m choosing myself, I’m choosing my size, I’m doing what’s right for me. I know a woman’s body is beautiful no matter what shape or size but I want this.”
She added, “So I just ask ya’ll to celebrate this with me. I’m at a place where I feel empowered to do what I want. I’m being honest about what it means. If you need a push to give yourself that same grace, here it is. No one knows what’s in another woman’s head. Or, for that matter, under their shirt. So do what’s right for you, and I’ll celebrate with you, too.”
