For the last couple of days whenever I've signed onto MSN and the Windows Live Today pops up, there has been at least one blurb about Jessica Simpson's weight gain.
Any browser I opened on a test machine that automatically has MSN set as it's homepage, also contains bits and pieces of Jessica Simpson's now bountiful bod. First there was the picture of her ass, and a caption along the lines of "She's a big star now..." Then articles of her sister defending her weight gain.. and I'm thinking to myself, there are wars going on, people are dying, losing their jobs, their homes, their minds, and all people seem to care about is that Jessica Simpson went from a size 2 to a size 8? First off, good on her for having a normal body, and secondly who cares???
The media needs to stop doing stuff like this as it's grossly unhealthy for adolescent girls to read this crap, and soak it up they do! Not too long ago the press went nuts because Jennifer Love Hewitt went from a size 0 to a size 2 and they were treating her like she had become obese. For too long Hollywood and the media has put too much emphasis on skin and bones, and not enough on health.
I wear a size 10, so that must make me morbidly obese? I'm 5'11, how do you think Size 0 would look on me? A stick person comes to mind..
