Perrie Edwards of Little Mix is inspiring young fans to show off their scars. Edwards, who underwent a number of surgeries as a child to repair an undersized esophagus, posted a snap of herself with the scar clearly visible to Instagram.
Despite not mentioning the scar in the post, the “Shout Out To My Ex” singer has given a number of fans the confidence to show off similar body marks. Edwards herself has grown more comfortable with the scar recently.
“When I was little, my esophagus was too small, so I had to get it operated on to help me eat properly,” she told Now magazine last year. “I had to have lots of operations, so that’s why I don’t want to show it.”
