Hilary Duff, former Disney star turned adult singing/acting powerhouse, took to Instagram today to send a message to anyone who wants to criticize her body: She has flaws, and she is proud of them.

"My body has given me the greatest gift of my life: Luca, 5 years ago," she said, referring to her son. "I'm turning 30 in September and my body is healthy and gets me where I need to go. Ladies, let's be proud of what we've got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed."

Her entire message is one big mic drop, down to the #kissmyass hashtag:

I am posting this on behalf of young girls, women, and mothers of all ages. I'm enjoying a vacation with my son after a long season of shooting and being away from him for weeks at a time over those months. Since websites and magazines love to share 'celeb flaws' - well I have them! My body has given me the greatest gift of my life: Luca, 5 years ago. I'm turning 30 in September and my body is healthy and gets me where I need to go. Ladies, lets be proud of what we've got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed. You guys (you know who you are!) already know how to ruin a good time, and now you are body shamers as well. #kissmyass 😛✌🏻
