Okay. So remember a while back when we saw the photoshoot that Kelly Osbourne did with Cosmopolitan magazine? And she looked all kinds of amazing and healthy? And I was all like, she’s daring us to hate on her, lol? Well, yeah. You know Hollywood. Since Kelly still looks like she occasionally eats, she obviously isn’t quite skinny enough for some folks. Why are we not surprised? Click inside to read what Kelly has to say about the issue.
Apparently Kelly spoke to Fabulous magazine and said that, even after such a dramatic change in her figure, she still gets a lot of hateration:
I’m the thinnest I’ve ever been and the healthiest I’ve ever been… The totally insane thing is that I’m a UK size 4 to 6 and people still say I’m fat.
I mean it’s crazy but I’ve had this all my life and I just try and ignore it.’
Well, as the saying goes, Haters gon’ hate! Kelly’s got a boyfriend who’s a vegan chef and a whole team behind her helping her to stay in shape. That sounds awesome, lol! And I can see why people would be jealous of all that, but damn! You’d think folks could just give props where props are due. Not so much, I guess.
The truth is, Kelly’s gonna hear stuff like this forever. Or at least until she drops another 5 pounds. And then everyone will complain that she’s too thin, etc., etc. The body issue in America is cray-cray! I know it exists in other countries, but we’re really special when it comes to this ish, lol. I remember learning about a Muslim woman who warned American women not to pity the Muslim women who must wear the hijab, for we have a veil of our own—the ‘size 6′ veil. True dat.
Even I feel like I’m participating in the ridiculousness somehow, with this story. I guess I’m just hoping we’ll all eventually get pissed enough to stop trying to look like whatever or whoever. Me? I’m just tryna live forever (or, you know, close) and fit into my jeans. Not tryna buy new ones. Love these Levis, lol!
Anyway, random thought—remember those Julia Kozerski photos we saw a while back.? I’m gonna go look at those again. Somehow, even as she was documenting that stunning body transformation, she understood (and conveyed) the idea that honesty and bravery (and character) are always going to be more interesting than our physical make-up. Or at least, that we should be paying them both close attention, simultaneously.
And yeah, I’m totally rambling because our site is down right now, so I’m writing this in a Word doc, and no one can stop me! Agh!
UPDATE: We’re Back Up!!!
