The Superficial Doesn’t Like Queen Latifah’s Swimsuit
The Superficial, one of my favorite celebrity gossip blogs (and one of the best on the ‘Net), recently posted this series of photos of and commentary on Queen Latifah at the beach entitled “Queen Latifah Doesn’t Like Her Swimsuit”.
Now why would they call it that? Because she’s giving the middle finger to the camera in the shots? Is she mad that she’s not a size zero? Or do you think maybe she’s just pissed that the paparazzi are following her around and taking pictures of her on vacation?
Perhaps the blogger just has a problem with the fact that Queen Latifah (do I call her Queen? Latifah?) doesn’t give a damn that she’s she’s heavy and is confident enough to where a bathing suit to the beach.
Here are some samples of the shots:
Underneath the photos, the moderator wrote a little “funny” commentary:
Queen Latifah gave the paparazzi the finger while vacationing in Maui. And I guess I’d be pretty mad too if I looked like that. I sort of expected gravy to be dripping from the side of her mouth. Aren’t there weight requirements for buying a swimsuit? I mean, Jesus, you need a license to own a gun, and I’d rather be shot twice than have to look at this thing. It’s not even a body anymore. It’s just…shapes.
Now, to me, there is nothing wrong with how her body looks. Admittedly, a majority of plus-size women don’t usually look supreme in bathing suits (especially because of disproportional distribution of excess body fat), but Latifah looks FINE! Not fine as in, “Oh, she looks fine…” but “Damn! She looks FIIIINE!”
She has a gorgeous shape. Her legs are smooth and defined. She lacks an overwhelming tummy bulge. Her breasts compliment her upper body, giving her an hourglass figure. She’s tall. I couldn’t ask for a better full-figured body to be seen in a bathing suit!
I shouldn’t feel so indignant about those person’s comments, considering it’s a gossip blog. They, especially The Superficial, are famous and popular because they’re bitchy. But it hurts to see things like that, especially because Latifah doesn’t look bad at all. I can’t imagine what they’d say about another full-figured gal who doesn’t look as good in a bathing suit.
Maybe I’m a hypocrite, because usually I myself love to make fun of celebrities and see them looking their worst, but The Superficial didn’t just insult Queen Latifah, he or she insulted every woman out there who ever wore a bathing suit, fat or not. No woman thinks she looks 100% perfect in a bathing suit, so whether you’re heavy or not, that comment is going to haunt you and play on your own insecurities.
Finally, I especially love the comment about the gravy. Because everyone knows how much us fat girls just stuff our faces with as much grease, lard, and grizzle any chance we get. (You know we love food almost as much as we love sex.) I know one of my favorite breakfast items are the bacon drippings I pour straight into my mouth from the frying pan as soon as I’m done cooking. Mmmm heart attacks….
Get real people!
