fat, ugly and shitter than winehouse
that is all i am, im on my own in america again. I used to pride myself on being strong minded and not being some stupid girl obsessed with the way I look. I felt like it didnt matter if I was a bit chubby cause, im not a model, I’m a singer. Im afraid I am not strong and have fallen victim to the evil machine. I write to you in a sea of tears from my hotel bed in Seattle, I have spent the past hour researching gastric bypass surgery, and laser lipo suction.
A bit chubby? Gastric Bypass? Lip Suction? Where do these phrases even enter into Allen’s orbit?
To me, she is gorgeous. She’s right though – she’s not stick thin. But who really wants her to be? She’s average and curvy. She doesn’t look disgusting, she looks healthy and beautiful. And not just beautiful, but hot!
Wasn’t she once proud of being natural? Wasn’t she once an opponent of the media’s standards? In this clip, she claims, “I’m not going to stop enjoying myself just because fashion tells me I shouldn’t be.”
(Thanks to CeleBodies for the link.)
This makes me very sad. I mean, first of all, she’s hardly chubby. But I can see how she might feel she is when paparazzi release unflattering pictures like these:
This wouldn’t make me feel good about myself either. But what she doesn’t realize is you just can’t look fantastic all the time (although she usually does.)
So, what’s wrong with being real? (even though her definition of being “real” is much thinner than our “real”.) Aren’t real women supposed to have curves? Does she want to look as haggard and emaciated as her supposed foil Amy Winehouse?
Honestly, though I love her music, I have to admit that Amy looks horrible. I don’t want Lily ending up like this. I don’t want her going through the same transformation that Amy went through when she went from looking normal like this:
To looking skeletal like this:
Finally, Lily, can’t weigh more than 130 lbs at most. You need to be at least over one hundred pounds overweight to even be considered for gastric bypass. What is she thinking? What’s going through her mind that makes her think you need a surgery like that or even lipo?
Lily, you’re not fat. Be a healthy role model, not a pathetic, clichéd statistic.
