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.

    Wow. It’s douchebags like the superficial posters in this comment section that make me really give up on humanity. She’s a singer, if you have an aversion to people who aren’t in perfect shape, perhaps you should take a deep personal reflection. Failing that, go fuck yourself.

    IF SHE LIKES HER WEIGHT, THEN WHY DID SHE LET SELF MAGAZINE PHOTOSHOP HER ASS TO MAKE IT LOOK SMALLER?

  3. Is that Christina Ricci on the cover? Actually does look like they shopped off 70 lbs.

  4. Not Surprised

    Wow, I didn’t realize there were so many perfect people in the US. Good to know everyone posting fat jokes and insults are lean, mean fitness machines. No hypocrisy here …

    To #104…stfu. Did you NOT read the name of this website, fatty? I am a lean 220 pounds. It helps that I’m 6’5″. I’m guessing you weigh about them same and two feet shorter.
    Put the cheeseburger down and go do some squats.

    Kelly Clarkson is NOT fat. You people are hateful and crazy. I am disgusted at some of these comments. Oh, you are all so perfect. Bunch of idiots. Low class idiots. She is beautiful and a sweet kid. Leave her alone. She can do whatever she wants, and she doesnt give a rat’s ass what any of you losers think.

    My, the overwhelming stench of misogyny and general douchehound-crazy fat-hatred in here could gag a maggot. It really burns some of you to see someone who doesn’t buy into the beauty myth, doesn’t it? I would think that most of you wouldn’t waste your time posting your opinion on it, considering that’s some precious time you could be spending in the gym hating yourself for not fitting into some size 0 skinny jeans. JESUS WEPT, Y’ALL.

    Well said, Donna Summer. The nasty comments on here are pathetic. Kelly rocks and is an awesome human being.

    What to expect of a website called “The Superficial”?? Nothing really. Two minutes of my life wasted reading this bullshit…
    Why don’t you guys stop patronizing people and get a life????

    @ AJ, fat ppl, and other fat ppl supporters
    you guys make me terribly angry. Honestly, a healthy weight and fit appearance are easily attainable. Fat burning is all about working in cardio exercises to your week. I used to be pretty fat as a kid. For a month I ran 3-5 miles a day, 3-5 days a week, and lost about 35 pounds. I have kept this weight off for over 5 years now, and am moving towards building more muscle. For celebrities, who’s success depends almost ENTIRELY on their appearance in the public eye, you could say its their goddamed JOB to look good for us. They have more money and time in the world and they don’t have 40 minutes to go jogging?? Holycrap.

    Even if you don’t believe that Kelly herself is that overweight, she is encouraging unhealthy habits. AJ keeps insisting that we don’t know enough to judge her, but we DO know that she gave out a bunch of shit advice (true eating whatever you want will make you happy, but some foods we want are terrible for our bodies, so we need to exercise self-control) that will CERTAINLY be used as ammunition by fat people to continue their fat lifestyles. proof? AJ’s stauch support of fat people.

    The future result of the social acceptance of fatness is apparent. Proportions of fat people in the nation’s population is growing, and it’s a goddamed fact that our bones and joints can’t support that much weight for decades. As so many people listen to Kelly and grow and stay fat, WE’RE all going to have to pay for THEIR freakin orthopedic surgeries when they’re old and STILL fat.

    Hey AJ, you’d be cool paying an extra couple thousand dollars off your paycheck to support a an old fat person’s knee surgery if they used Kelly’s advice as justification for why they’re fat?

    if anyone doesn’t see the connection:

    everyone has to pay taxes for medicare. old people are insured through medicare. proportion of fat people growing. once these fat people are old enough, they get hit with poor bones and joints, but WAIT! they also get coverage by medicare.

    The result = we all have to pay for fat people TODAY who think their lifestyles are “healthy”.

    If you’re okay with that, just think: would you be okay covering someone for lung cancer who smoked a carton everyday because their body “just needs” the nicotine?

    I am a little bit overweight, but I am NOT doing nothing but eating. Sure, I have had my depressed and lazy months where I am not getting the exercise I need and I am not going to make excuses about why I’m carrying 10 extra pounds. But I resent anyone who says all I’m doing is sitting on my ass eating food, because that is not how all people with extra weight live their lives. It’s a lot more complex than just that.

    And since when do we care more about her stomach and thighs than we do about her talent? I for one don’t give a shit what she looks like.

  15. Kelly Clarkson is not fat. You people are disgusting and crazy. I am disappointed at some of these comments. Oh, you’re so right. Bunch of idiots. Low class morons. She is beautiful and has a cute kid. Leave him alone. He wants everything he can, and he doesn’t give a rat’s ass what any of you losers think.
