Kelly Clarkson, the woman who says she has always had a problem with her weight but has gone on to be a star anyway, has opened up about her real feelings on the subject.
The American Idol alum says that she is happy with her weight and that she won’t be pushed around or bullied by people who tell her to slim down. The singer also says that she has always been chubby and does not care what people think — she also points out that she has been the same weight since Season One of American Idol and millions of people didn’t give a shit and voted for her anyway.
She said, “I feel very fortunate coming from ‘American Idol’. I was the biggest girl in the group. I’ve always been thicker and millions of people voted for me. People are born all different shapes and sizes. People like me this way.”
I agree to an extent, although Clarkson sounds a little blithe about something as prevalent and serious as being overweight.
I think she is fabulous and could out-sing most of the current top 10, but maybe she would have done well in her quote to acknowledge that a healthy weight and BMI (Body Mass Index) is preferable to actually being obese. Just saying.
