Skinny VS Curvy

Skinny VS Curvy

Kirstie Alley Brings the Quote of the Day

Posted: 01 Oct 2012 11:34 AM PDT


“I know I've conquered [my weight battles], but you always have to keep it in check. My whole life I could eat whatever I wanted to eat, and we ate tons of food, I was lucky. I had a free ride, basically, until I was 54 and then all hell broke loose. I didn't know what to do because I had these habits of eating a huge amount of food. I wasn't particularly cautious of what I was eating."

… says Kirstie.

Christina Aguilera to Her Record Label: “You are working with a FAT girl. Get over it.”

Posted: 01 Oct 2012 05:35 AM PDT


Christina Aguilera recently gave an interview to Billboard Magazine where she talked about her relationship with her record label and how her weight has always been an issue:

Her record label made her stay thin: "During the promotion of my album Stripped [in 2002], I got tired of being a skinny, white girl. I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl. The next time my label saw me, I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! Let me tell you, that wasn't an easy pill for them to swallow. I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion and during my Stripped tour [with Justin Timberlake, 31]. They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would effect a lot of people if I gained weight — the production, musical directors. [They claimed] people I toured with would also miss out if I gained weight because I would sell no records or tickets for my shows. I was young, so I lost the weight quickly and was toothpick thin during Back to Basics promos and touring."

This time around, it's different: "I told them during this Lotus recording, 'You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it.' They need a reminder sometimes that I don't belong to them. It's my body. My body can't put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore-my body is just not on the table that way anymore."

… says Christina.
