Media Spot-Lite: Celebrity Round-Up
A few months ago, I did a “Celebrity Smorgasbord” post and recently have come across an absurd amount of articles on celebrities and their various weight issues, so I’ve decided to do another round-up. Celebrities: a hot mess, just like us!
When the original unretouched cover photo from Redbook’s July 2007 issue surfaced, the singer said she was disappointed by the altered photo. Redbook stood by the image saying, “the retouching we did on Faith Hill’s photo for the July cover is completely in line with industry standards.” We think she looked pretty darn good in the original image.
She told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is six-foot-whatever and then I say “OK, I’m going to put it on. I stand for the general public here”. It’s how I work. I found it really difficult when I was pregnant and I couldn’t do that. It’s part of the process – I’ll stand here in my knickers and start draping fabric over myself. It was very hard when I didn’t have my body.’
She was called ‘too fat’ by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld – and now Adele is shedding the pounds.
The singer and her charity campaigner boyfriend Simon Konecki, 36, have each lost almost a stone in the past month by following a strict vegetarian diet. The couple also go jogging with Adele’s dog Louie every morning.
‘The weight is dropping off them and they plan to keep dieting until the end of April,’ says a friend of the 23-year-old Grammy winner, who lives with Simon in a rented £6million pile in West Sussex.
‘They are inseparable – they are losing weight together, getting fit together and planning a future together. Adele says she’s doing her best work and feels healthier than she has for months.’
“We do look very different, we’re older. Leo’s 37, I’m 36 – we were 21 and 22 when we made that film. You know, he’s fatter now – I’m thinner. It’s true though!”
‘This is hilarious. First, people say how so many actresses in Hollywood look anorexic, and now they are criticizing me for looking normal,’” the source recalled. The actress reportedly added that overly thin body images “are too often adopted by young girls and women — thanks to what they are constantly being shown as being attractive.”
Hot mess, hot mess, hot mess! I appreciate Adele trying to get healthy, and Jennifer Lawrence standing up for her bodacious bod, but I’m totally cracking up at Posh and a little disappointed at Winslet’s humor! Also, has I think by now most of us have figured out that every single magazine cover is photoshopped out the wazoo. And of course, almost all of these are about women, right (also, seriously, there are slideshows on FoxNews rating “celebrity” women’s implants?? Disgusting, and of course FoxNews)? Oy.
