Kelly Clarkson was bulimic

Kelly Clarkson says she used to be bulimic, and developed the eating disorder after she was passed over for a role in her high school musical. She tells CosmoGirl:

“I thought…If I came back and I’m cuter and thinner…then I’ll get the role.” For six months, Clarkson was bulimic, until a friend discovered her problem. “One of my guy friends caught on to it, and I just felt so ashamed and embarrassed,” she tells the mag. “I literally went cold turkey and snapped out of it.”

Ahh, high school. I see. So she’s no longer bulimic. Because I was about to say … you know … *casually walks away while whistling*

  3. Hollard

  4. PineAppleBottoms

    Yeeeeeeeah.

    And I used to sing.

    Riiiight.

    -Britney Spears

  5. From the looks of that picture, she should think about starting up again.

  6. hmm

    that is such an awful picture. fat but still flat chest. strange

  7. MrSemprini

    I would say that her boobies are still bulimic…

  8. Judy Greer

    And ALL UGLY people should be shot on SIGHT!

    Especially all the UGLY people who write nasty things about other people’s looks!

    After all… ALMOST ALL of the people on this sight are UGLY on the INSIDE!

    i don’t think peoples’ proportions change when they gain or lose moderate amounts of weight. why is “body type” strange?

  10. That’s weird, I thought I saw recent pictures of her, and hasn’t she gained a bunch of weight? Not judging or anything, I mean that’s fine with me. I don’t have to sleep with her. If you read this Kelly, DO NOT start purging again. Gives you bad breath!

  11. jrzmommy

    yeah….WAS.

  12. MetalMaiden

    Nothing worse than a huge ass and no tits…and no tan…and no talent…

  13. rebecca

    she’s not fat…maybe for hollywood’s standards…but it’s nice to see someone with a shape.

  14. schack

    long time no talk, frist

    purging also makes you sallow and flaccid, and it’s unsustainable.

    why didn’t she just hit the gym twice a week for a few months?

  15. schack

    awww- metalmaiden still thinks with the archaic mind of a blubbering baby…

    me want HUGE titty, mommy.

  16. celia

    She is NOT FAT at all. I dont see cellulite, rolls or a belly. she’s just not super skinny. Part of the reason people become bulimic is because of comments like this.

  17. schack

    i don’t think so, celia. the reason people become bulimic is because they take extreme pleasure in overpowering and torturing people, namely, themselves.

    Beached whale!!!

  19. JumpinJ

    YARRRR!!! There be the great white that chewed off me leg. Hand me the harpoon!!!

  20. schack

    goddamnit! you didn’t get the part in the school play, you cowardly, cowhore, you grotesque piece of shit! no wonder no one bows down to you, no wonder your boyfriends keep leaving you. well, now you bow down to ME, fatty!

  21. Superfish

    wow! Kelly Clarkson bullimic? yeah right! if she was ever skinny, then i was a girl in my previous life. which i still am…only i have no boobs, an extremely large penis and…well, Long Story Short, im a guy. but in other words…i’d still do her. with a bag over her head of course.

    **stands up straight and does the hokey pokey

  22. Donkey

    Maybe she was “passed over” because she’s not talented enough.

  23. You guys are fucking retarted. I think she looks great.
    You guys can keep all your anorexic celebs. Kelly looks awesome.

  24. ....

    I SAW HER AT LA’S WANGO TANGO AND HER BACK WAS FULL OF ZITS. THE BIG PUSS CRATER KIND. IT WAS NASTY. SHE SHOULD START USING THAT PROACTIVE ON HER BACK.

  25. Kelly, is my girl! She look’s great! Of course all of the skinny bitches, and ugly ones will have something to say about her! I think that if the water was in your face, you would probably make funny faces also! I think that her pipes are amazing! I love the new song! I don’t see anything wrong with her switching it up a little bit, on the music scene! Muthafuckas can’t stay the same all of their lives! I LOVE KELLY CLARKSON!

    “she’s not fat…maybe for hollywood’s standards…but it’s nice to see someone with a shape.”

    She looks like a very thin and unattractive woman that was stretched fat. There is no shape to her such as an hourglass figure and she definitely is fat. It is quite remarkable that she is so tubby yet not at all curvaceous. That body does nothing for a man. Sex with her would be a fitting punishment for minor crimes.

    Number 9, do you live in a fantasy world where people are nice and happy and love one another? Last I checked, I was on the Internet and at thesuperficial, a site based on derision and scrutiny of the stupid things that famous people say and do.

    Ride your Carebear-Stare-fueled unicorn back to Marshmallow Glee Land and choke on a bag of cotton candy.

  28. fergeson

    well, shack, if you identify with the people you love, and the people you love hate and disparage you, then you identify with an attitude that hates you, too.

    so celia is right; when young men and women make horrible comments, that narrative is internalized in a process of identification (“looking up to someone”) and results in a poisonous psyche

  29. bungoone

    20, i don’t want to laugh but i can’t help it. hilarious!

  30. techclerk

    Her face looks like Fred Armeson from SNL in that pic

  31. Jimbo

    FRIST are you still out there?

  32. kaelyn

    yeah, i’m not a huge kelly fan or anything, but i would love to have a flat stomach like that. at least she’s no lohan or richie…

  33. Worldmaker

    “she’s not fat…maybe for hollywood’s standards…but it’s nice to see someone with a shape.”

    Of what, am offshore buoy?

  34. bungoone

    25, no one needs to know that. are you sure you weren’t looking in a mirror?

  35. ?????

    What shape are you talking about because at first I thought it was a picture of laundry on an ironing board

  36. schack

    it all depends who you look up to, then, by you r own logic. and looking up to people who like to disparage others already means you have a predilection for overpowering and torturing. so, you are right, but you miss the fact that she acts out on herself symbolically because she cannot fulfill the fantasy of being powerful, glamourous and disinterestedly malicious.

    she tortures herself because she doesn’t have what it takes to be the evil person she would love to be.

  37. teeteetdot

    She should be put to sleep.

  38. wow

    hahahaha she looks SO good!!!

    yea, not. she really should take up that whole bulimia thing again….stat.

  44. rosie's mustach

  45. AnnaDraconida

    UGLY

  46. Kelli P

    Wow. Do most of you peeps have lives of your own? I’d love to see how you measure up against an incredibly normal-looking human being having fun at the beach. I love this website, but man, so many of the commenters have really fucked up views of what is good/beautiful/acceptable/normal. You’re all so brainwashed to think that women who are so Hollywood thin are normal. They ain’t. Kelly looks incredibly normal and healthy there. If she wants more in the boobage area, there are nice padded bras to wear. When you’re having fun at the beach, who gives a fuck? And who should, frankly?

  47. K-Ren

    She’s not fat. She just has a box-shaped body. And yeah, her weight fluctuates a lot, but so does… everyone’s. Sure, it’s an unflattering picture. But it illustrates the article and gets reactions. That’s why it’s up there. I think she was cuter during the Idol days, but I still think she’s got a great voice.

  48. Fatty

    Have you ever noticed how overweight woman will ALWAYS defend someone else who is overweight as “Normal” because they HAVE to believe they are also “Normal” and not some fat obeses slob that can’t stop themselves from eating(genetics right?). But At the very same time, they do the opposite to
    other woman saying they are “skinny”, because skinny is a bad word for fat people. No wonder we so many fat people, stop eating for christ sake!

  49. ....

    #33….yeah, i’m not a huge kelly fan or anything, but i would love to have a flat stomach like that. at least she’s no lohan or richie…

    IM SURE ITS NOT FLAT WHEN SHE SITS DOWN….
