According to this blog entry she posted this past weekend on her official MySpace page, it seems as though Miss Allen is in desperate need of help.

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. Continue reading ‘Lily Allen’s Cry for Help’

Thanks to Ajaramillo of Girlpower + 1 for pointing out this interesting New York Times article to me about Leonard Nimoy’s
new photography collection featuring fat women posing nude.
Nimoy’s “Full Body Project” presents a little over a dozen black-and-white photographs of plus-size women prancing about in the nude (and one of them wearing sexy corsets.) It’s a tad exploitative (I mean, using any group of people for art like this is technically exploiting them for their “interesting features”), though it’s not nearly as extreme as Gaultier’s fat faux pas last October considering that the motivations behind this endeavor were so much more benevolent than the fashion designer’s.
And to be honest, I’m not even really offended by the fatsploitation. More power to it, I say! These photos are just too beautiful to take any sort of umbrage with. Take a look: Continue reading ‘Spock Does Fat’

You know you’ve asked yourself this question. Don’t lie.
When you first saw her you thought, “How gorgeous!” And then you’re second thought was, “Wait… she’s a little thicker than I realized….” And then your final thought was, “Oh my God, Sara Ramirez is kinda… fat, isn’t she? Hm.”
Why is it so shocking that, when we look at Sara Ramirez, we have an inkling that she may be fat? (“Fat”, of course, never being a negative and only used as an observation on this blog.) Is there even a hypothetical borderline between being skinny and fat? Like, “Oop… oop… wait for it…awww, no. Oh well, it’s official, Ms. Ramirez is officially fat. Close call, though. She almost made it. She coulda be thin….” Continue reading ‘Is Sara Ramirez Fat?’

Victory for all the fat girls out there! I can’t WAIT for Hairspray!
(Although, what’s up with John Travolta’s fat suit and makeup? At least they made Gwyneth, Eddie Murphy, and Martin Lawrence look realistic!)

I love bitchy gossip blogs as much as the next girl (shout out to my man Perez!), but sometimes they can even hurt the reader.
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: Continue reading ‘The Superficial Doesn’t Like Queen Latifah’s Swimsuit’
