First of all, let me just say that I am SO obsessed with YATNB! I was writing Trent on Facebook today about it, because I cannot get over some of the comments from last week—you all had sooo many great stories about celebrities you’ve met (and how the experience either sucked or rocked), and I’ve just been having a blast reading about your FABULOUS lives. I feel like it also needs to be said that PITNBrs have some of the most bomb ass grammar on the interwebs. So, props to y’all. All day, every day. Today’s topic was partly inspired by an article I’m reading on The Hollywood Reporter: Plastic Surgery Suicide Puts Spotlight on Beverly Hills Patients’ Desperation, Lies and Mental States (I recommend reading it when you get a chance), so click inside for more!
So here’s the deal. Some of my favorite celebs have def had work done, and sometimes—IMO—it gets to be a bit much. The first person who comes to mind is my girl Lil’ Kim. I mean…… yeah. The article I’m reading addresses (among many other things) the link between plastic surgery and depression, and also trends in plastic surgery across cultures. I remember in an interview aaaggggesss ago Kim talked about not feeling pretty when she was growing up, and wishing she looked more like the girls who got attention from guys. I think about that when I see how far she went for her look.
I mean. Dude:
In Hollywood “it’s different.” Plastic surgery for many people is as much a fact of life as eyeliner. We all, in some way or another, alter our natural-born looks to fit an ideal (ours or someone else’s, or a mixture of both), but there are celebs who have become practically unrecognizable and sometimes it’s jolting… sometimes it’s just sad.
Today’s YATNB Topic:
How do you feel when one of your favorite celebrities suddenly looks… visibly different? If you know a celebrity has had work done, does that put you off a bit?
