Kelly Clarkson loves her girth

August 10th, 2009 // 115 Comments

Kelly Clarkson is fine with her weight and decided to fire back at critics in an interview with Self magazine who ironically wasn’t fine with Kelly’s weight because they airbrushed the shit out of her (above). People reports:

“When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!’,” Clarkson, 27, tells the September issue of Self.
She also notes, “My happy weight changes. Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more.”
The Texas native admits she still eats chicken-fried steak, but also has days when she prefers salads. “I love healthy stuff and junk an equal amount,” she tells the magazine. “Whatever I’m craving, I go for it.”
Her secret to losing weight, in fact, is to not go on a diet: “For me, it’s the times when I’m not paying attention that I end up losing weight. But I’m never trying to lose weight – or gain it. I’m just being!”

Why do I get the feeling Kelly’s one of those people who orders five Big Macs and a Diet Coke? Or eats an entire buffalo because she ate a salad for lunch. With only 10 chicken wings in it. Let’s go with that last one.

    I usually stick up for her but the last three pics have made me feel sick, its a shame cause when she isnt devouring cow’s she has a really pretty face.
    Looks as though I might weigh the same as one of her bingo wings in those pic’s tho, silly silly girl.

  9. Sarah

    Yes, I’ll definitely get my dieting advice from the female-troll version of Meatloaf – I’ve always wanted to put on a lot of weight but keep my breasts really small.

  10. do not wany

    “loves her girth”

    So does Shamu but I’m not going to be sticking my pecker in that anytime soon either. Put the damn hamburger down and back away from the table.

  11. Lisa

    Wow, that is a ridiculous airbrushing job.

  12. cow


  13. wtf

    “Whatever I’m craving, I go for it.” Well that is fucking obvious. Thanks for clearing that confusion.

    I love her headline – “Stay True to You and Everyone Else Will Love You, Too!”

    Do women actually buy that? If you stay true to yourself some will like you, some won’t, that’s just the way it goes – the whole point is that you’re not supposed to work to make everybody like you. Unless you’re fat – then you have no choice but to try to be entertaining, so people can choke down the clot of vomit that rises as soon as they see your disgusting corpulent body.

  15. Is it me or did they also make her right hand freakishly small?

  16. Deacon Jones

    Holy boulder ass, Robin!

    Her arms look like the bald dudes’ in “Over the Top”…..

    “Mr. Cutler is talking to you…”

  17. crsfc

    a fat person saying “I’m fine with my weight” is the same as a fat person saying “I’m too effing lazy to do anything but eat”

    #3 – why do people have to be skinny? Um, because thin is healthy, it is attractive, and it is NORMAL.

    Fat people are unattractive, unhealthy, and usually have disordered personalities. That hillbilly retard Jessica Simpson is the perfect example of fatness disorder.

    Give me someone with self-control and self-discipline, and I’ll show you someone who is NOT FAT.

  19. FrenchChef

    Kelley likes to take a whole cow and deep fry it for about an hour then just eat it while watching a movie. It’s better than chicken fried steak.

  20. Janet

    She looks awful. A disgusting mess.

  21. Deacon Jones


    And Mike, what’s the best about the cover is after “Stay true to yourself”, every other fucking headline is about how to change/alter yourself:

    Get Abs! Fight fat! Sexier Sex! Reach your Dream Weight!

  22. One time I met Kelly and I told her about this magic trick I had learned. So I hid a ding dong in one of my hands and asked her which one my hands was holding yet..Unfortunately Kelly said neither hand and when I opened my hands to see that nothing was infact there, thats when I noticed she was already eating it..

  23. Jesus, what a heffer. Stop eating you disgusting slag.

  24. Joseph

    #18…you said it. I was gonna say the same exact thing to #3. Especially if you want to talk about the healthy part of it? Just one thing from being overweight that causes end-organ failure, heart attacks, etc…high blood pressure. Sure other factors can attribute to it but being overweight is a major one. I am so sick of America’s lazy fucking attitude of “let’s all just love ourselves the obese way we are.” Yeah, really healthy. Way to go.

  25. Wilko

    Fat kills.

    Way more of us die from being fat than get killed by terrorists.

  26. I love that you put real pictures of Kelly next to that airbrushed beyong belief magazine cover. If she is so happy with her weight, why did she let them shave off a good 30 – 40 lbs?

  27. Chi chi

    She’s fuckin’ ugly!!!! Looks just like a pig. lol

  28. Chi chi

    She’s fuckin’ ugly!!!! Looks just like a pig!! lol

  29. Mai-Tai

    I think that some people can rock a fat ass – Kardashian, J-Lo, etc., but Clarkson just doesn’t look good in it.

  30. bert

    It’s like that new dating show More to Love where the women are “real women” of America. What BS!! So now it’s the norm for American women to be Obese. This is NOT normal people, it’s just become accepted.

  31. dk

    What the heck is a chicken-fried steak?

    Is this real?

  32. Polk

    #32 – ask anybody in the South, where 80% is obese.

  33. Taz

    mix in a salad!

  34. cheezy_poof

    I cannot wait for Saturday! I will have a hot body and flatter abs.

  35. Deacon Jones

    It’s like having a breaded, fried steak. They’re awesome man.

    Oh, except for the crippling, dagger-like pangs that begin shooting thru your stomach almost immediately due to the fat content.

    Followed by the “Did I Just Shit Myself?” butt clench, and finally, the “I Just Shat Vegetable Oil and half a Green Bean Out of my Ass” bowel movement.

  36. Fati

    Yeah, whatever. Like anyone (xept the big O) ever admitted they hated being fat but just didn’t have the will power to stop stuffing their faces and exercise. No one loves being overweight, so stop feeding yourself bullshit and lose the lard already.

    #3 – People don’t have to be or do anything. However, there is such a thing as societal norms. Being fat is not seen as socially desirable. It never was, it never will be. You fatties really need to make your peace with that and stop trying to make fatness okay. Don’t be pathetic.

  37. Guy Rossi

    Is there anything worse than a fat chick with tiny boobs?

  38. AJ

    I am kicking myself for even reading the comments on this post. The ignorant vitriol and knee-jerk hatred here is just astonishing.

    People’s bodies are pre-programmed to stay within a certain weight range. To go beyond that you have to take extreme measures that just aren’t sustainable. Why should she be forced to starve herself silly and kill herself exercising just to be thin? If she’s getting a decent amount of exercise and eating reasonably well, she’s probably way more healthy than a size 0 model who never exercises and barely eats. You can be both healthy AND overweight. True story.

    Fat doesn’t kill–sedentary lifestyles and terrible diets do. How can we assume to know anything about Kelly’s lifestyle other than the fact that she likes both bad stuff and healthy stuff? O NOES TEH FATTY EATED A DONUT. Heaven forbid.

    I don’t really expect any of this to stick. This crowd just wants to laugh at the chubby girl and move on. “She’s fuckin’ ugly!!!! Looks just like a pig. lol” Eloquent.

  39. Harry

    Can we go back to the Miley Cyrus pictures?

  40. “Whatever I’m craving, I go for it.” What is she pregnant? how bout Krazy glue your lips shut?

  41. ap21

    who let the pig out of the stables?

  42. Uncle Nunzio

    Wow. How much do photo editors get? The amount of overtime that some poor worker earned must be in the 1000′s….much needed based on KC looks.

  43. Darth

    How about her appearing in K-feds reality show?

  44. britanica

    her ass would make a great bookshelf

  45. ct

    The black jeans want to burst like a broken dam.

  46. Galtacticus

    We don’t expect from her to look like a catwalk model.But isn’t she exaggerating a bit with this shot putter’s shape?

  47. gotmilk?

    16, nice “over the top” reference & i do concur.

    seriously though, if she’s so comfortable with how she looks, she should be pissed off that they did that to her on the cover. that is NOT her ass and the arm is about 6 inches smaller in circumference and missing 50 dimples of cellulite. i won’t hold my breath for the official statement from this fatty reprimanding Self magazine.

  48. lisa

    On some of the other celeb blogs Kelly’s fat supporters(Kelly’s Bellies) refuse to accept that she is even a little overweight………..delusional….she’s a swine.

  49. I'm The Decider

    #39 (The Weepy Commenter) is false.

    #38 is true.
