Jessica Simpson is fat!...?

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

OK…it’s been a while since Miss Jessica wore the infamous “mom jeans” to a concert/chili cookoff in Pembroke Pines, FL sporting a curvier figure. It‘s been a little over a year in fact, but the incident still resonates with me. I find it personally offensive that someone with such an amazing body is belittled for looking normal. Heck, by the average standard, Jessica was smaller at that time than any average American gal. I don‘t suppose we‘ll ever be able to accept people as they are, but it doesn’t bode well for us when we lay such an unmerited label on such a lovely young lady. I don’t know anyone personally who wouldn’t give their left pinkie toe to look like Miss Simpson….myself included. I want to lose weight, I want to be healthy, but I honestly believe that some curves are to be celebrated! Marilyn Monroe didn’t have a bony butt! At this rate our future civilizations will worship the walking skeletons of society. One really great Spark People article I read recently suggested that in order to build our sense of personal appreciation that we imagine a society where the overweight are the celebrated….the “pretty people” of society. How would you feel about yourself then? And, although that’s nice, we shouldn’t allow society to determine who is beautiful. There is beauty in all of us, whether we wear a size 2 or a size 32…and THAT should be what is sought after, what is celebrated. So….tell me true….. How would YOU like to have this body?:

    She's described the routine she goes through to maintain her figure when she's shooting a movie, and it's basically a second full-time job. Which the media seems to think is a normal and required thing to do, or we're "failing" our female duties.

    She looks fine to me. It's too bad that the Media has to trash her that way, but I guess they will do whatever they have to in order to get people to buy their rags.

    What the heck - I'd do her.

    Oh, wait, that wasn't the question...

    I think she's dumb as a sack of hammers, but I think she looks just fine. :)

    It just goes to show how much your perceived weight can be influenced by what you choose to wear! I'll be sticking to flattering cuts!

    I wouldn't mind her body, but I like the one I have. I don't think she was ever "fat" and I think it was misleading and wrong of the media to slam her weight. I think the pair of jeans were extremely unflattering and created the illusion of extra weight where there probably was none. If there should have been a scandal at all, it should have been for the poor fashion choice - not her weight. Out of all of the world's issues and problems, how sad that a pair of jeans is a scandal in the first place.
