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*

    44, not as stupid as your lack of english or computer skills. better get your keyboard checked out. i think your caps lock key is stuck. the english, well, that’s something you need to work on. http://www.sylvanlearningcenter.com

  2. it's me bitchesssss

    (as i die of laughter @ 22 and 28)

    bulimia is the cure for obesity. and if you take objection to that it’s probly just cuz u need to start shoving a finger or two down your own throat. and spare me the “i’d rather be like her than any of those anorexic stars” comment. you’re lying. you can fool yourself into loving your fat rolls, but no one else will. haha. be like kelly. go purge.

    49. Ever notice how really ugly people always play on other people’s flaw because they want to feel better about themselves?

    Moron.

    #20, I’m dying! That was hilarious. It is a really bad picture and she probably doesn’t deserve these comments, but that was fucking funny! :) lol.

  5. Hi Jimbo, hi schack!!! Yeah, I’m here on and off, mostly off, but going to lunch now. I’m taking Kelly out to the Binge n’ Purge….yummmmm…..

  6. gotmilk?

    52, that’s only slightly crazy.

    i guess you’re assuming that people are either fat or skinny. personally, if i see someone who’s got bones sticking out left & right, it’s just as revolting as someone who can barely walk or fit into a seat because they’re so overweight.

  7. SAL

    WHAT are you doing posting pictures of Macaulay Culkin in a bikini?!?….and moreover, what is Mac DOING in a bikini….I coulda sworn he got beamed up to his mothership…..

    ….oh wait, is that supposed to be Kelly Clarkson??….oh…..riiiiight….’cause I coulda sworn in was Macau—-nevermind.

  8. Fatty

    53. Yah I did notice that. What’s your point, stop trying to change the subject and attack other people. We are talking about a real issue here, fat people need to start loosing weight. We are becomming a nation of fat people, we can no longer sit by and let this go on. Who’s with me? Next time you see a fat person, help them out, they might not even know they are fat, it’s called “DENIAL”….it’s time for a wake up call!

  9. urslow

    52, one eating disorder is not a cure for another eating disorder.

    perhaps proper food choices & exercise are?!!

  10. I THINK THAT KELLY IS A FINE YOUNG LADY! I’VE MET HER, AND HE IS FINE AS HELL! I WOULD DEFINTELY DO HER! SHE IS A VERY SWEET YOUNG LADY! sHE CAN SING HER ASS OFF! THIS WHOLE ROOM, IS LIKE HATERVILLE! KELLY, HAS SOME NICE LEGS HERE, I THINK ALL SHE NEEDS, IS SOMEONE TO SUCK HER BREAST, FUCK IMPLANTS…THEY LOOK SOOO CHEESY! sHE’S A BLACK MAN’S HEAVEN! SO….WHAT YOU ASSHOLES, DON’T THINK LOOK GOOD, wE DO!(BLACK MEN) BLACK WOMEN, TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN! i FORGOT, SKINNY IS WHERE IT’S AT? (HAHAHAHAHA)

  11. ...

    oh my god, this is seriously getting to be ridiculous. KELLY DOES NOT NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT. maybe if she wants to start partying with paris, but NOT AS A NORMAL HUMAN BEING. she looks like any other girl walking down the street…and, no, not a fat one that needs to stop eating. i would bet that kelly weighs no more than 135 pounds. maybe 140. but last time i checked, that was NORMAL. if she weighed 135 at, what, 5’4″? that would give her a body mass index of about 23. you’re not even close to being overweight until it hits at least 25.

    if you want fat, gorge yourself on the old kirstie alley pics. hell, even the new ones.

  12. i binge on other people's purges

    Kelly’s got a couple of problems. She’s gained a lot of weight since she won Idol, and she looked much better back then. Not unhealth – too-skinny or anorexic or anything like that – just…not heavy like she is now. She’s got the “Before” and “After” pictures, and there’s really no doubting when she looked better.

    The other thing is, you can defend her endlessly by saying she’s talented, but it’s awkward that she just had to cancel her summer tour due to poor ticket sales, while rumors go around and around that her new album is the suckiest suck that ever sucked. The alternative is that she’s a mediocre talent who won a bogus reality show competition, and then pulled the rip cord and now faces a career as a singing pig at state fairs. Not that there’s anything wrong with that (Minnesota).

  13. vomitorium

    I think this pic was snapped just as she started to hurl. Way to go Kelly! There is a thin you trapped somewhere in there.

  14. Helena

    Fuck you, Superfish dick. You recycled this picture…showed the same one at least a year ago.

    I’m not a fan of her music, but at least shes not an idiot like Britney, Shes average, not fat. Shes just pear shaped

  15. haha

    hells ya…am i the only one entertained by the fact that kirstie actually thinks she looks good here? http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e368/junkinessblog/kirstie_alley.jpg

  16. woodhorse

    Jesus Christ those thighs are taking a beating! The rest of her is fairly average – small tits & ass actually – but those thighs! #59 What excercise do you think is going to fix that? Reverse bicycle pedaling?

  17. Dan

    Why does everyone have to focus on other’s bodies whether good or bad when they are supposed to be famous for their talent? (and you can’t deny that Kelly has at least a little talent).
    And why would any of you ever enjoy encouraging eating disorders just because someone doesn’t fit your personal standards? Why would you criticise someone’s natural body shape?
    People who are struggling with body issues deserve nothing but empathy..think of something you’ve struggled with..it just wasn’t as easy for you as it was for everyone else. It’s the same way for those who are “overweight”.
    Grow a heart.

  18. kelly iz zo fatt…
    look at the top of
    her legz…hogzillaz
    zizter…and her face
    iz zo ugly like that!

    @17

    No, people become bulimic/anorexic/whatever because they are idiots with no independent thoughts in their heads whose entire lives are dominated by peer pressure. It is entirely possible to become trim and fit through a healthy diet and exercise; these morons just can’t see far enough past their fat faces to stop acting like victims of the entire world. Sorry, you don’t get my sympathy.

    btw, other than being a sizable chunk, I think her other problem is that she resembles some sort of Ewok. Look at how short her arms are. They look like little meat stumps compared to the rest of her “body”. It’s bizarre.

  20. Fatty

    Did anyone ever think that, since she’s starting to look like a whale. Maybe she is also starting to sound like a whale, that’s why they cancelled her summer tour. I mean you can cancel the tour or hold it under water.

  21. woodhorse

    60: You are a black guy calling yourself DuranDuran? I once had a Psych patient in Houston (extremely large Manic nude white guy)sign all his admission papers “SnoopDoggyDogg”. He talked in all caps, too. Do you know him?

  22. citizenstrange

    I don’t think she looks that fat but she does look like she has Down Syndrome.

  23. EZ

    Nobody is stating the obvious, which is that breast implants would do wonders for this girl’s proportions.

    She will never lose those hips and ass, nor should she, she just needs to complete the package.

  24. ...

    hahaah #72

  25. Fatty

    72. Down syndrome is more common among fat people. Fat people will develop a mild retardation as they get fatter, it’s not technically called down syndrome, but that’s what I call it. I think the technical term for it is, “I can’t stop fucking eating”

    Can you proove your point?

  27. schack

    looks like fat is the new black

    but we feel entitled to prejudice against fat people because…they can help themselves?

    but black people can help themselves too; they can bleach their skin white.

    so why not say: stop complaining, blackie! why are you even still black? just lose the melanin, buddy.

  28. SNS

    How did they talk this guy into getting into a bikini?

  29. Lys

    idiot

    Your the one who says she’s ugly and looks like and ewok, and you are also the one who says she’s stupid to take it personnaly? What kind of moronic logic is that?

  30. yolatengo

    she is not obese per say, but, she just looks like she was dipped in a batter of white, doughy goo. zero tone

  31. schack

    #76- i can’t proove it, but i may be able to prove it, with extensive psychological research. but i’m speaking from experience, really. and if you scroll down and read my discussion with fergeson, i actually incorporate celia’s point into my hypothesis. i no longer disagree with her theory, so there is no need for you to be a contrarian.

  32. fatty

    77. I know it’s terrible for you to see all those black people who could be your slaves, but the south lost the civil war so move the fuck on already.

  33. ....

    #44,
    MAYBE YOU SHOULD LEARN THAT AFTER THE PERIOD AT THE END OF THE SENTENCE YOU CAPITILIZE THE FIRST LETTER.
    HERE YOU GO BUDDY….
    http://www.sylvanlearningcenter.com JUST FOR YOU!

  34. FIRE CANABIS

    Kelly Clarkson, is sexy as hell! I WOULD DO HER ALL NIGHT! I think that it is some jealous whores in the house! Ok, Obsessed with being skinny for life ass bitches, she is fine! Maybe, you need to take a good look at yourself in the mirror, and realize that pushing tooth brushes down your throat isn’t good, Taking laxatives all day isn’t good! It’s ok, to gain a little weight…sometimes! it’s ok to wear maybe a 8, or 9 and up! It’s always an option besides 0! Wake the fuck up America, Thick is where it’s at!

  35. urslow

    66, probably any exercise would help those trunks.

  36. rebecca

    77…psh…the south will rise again.

    not that i want slaves or anything.

    okay, maybe i do. but not black people. maybe like…hm…okay, i’ll settle for those people vh1 conned into thinking they’re celebs for the surreal life. i’ll just tell them i’m filming them.

  37. schack

    umm, i’m not southern. i do find it disconcerting that even the most progressive folks among us do not hesitate to make fun of fat people (and mexicans). it’s the same thing just transferred to a new target. and yes, i do find racism pathetic, but only because it’s always the most powerless people who NEED to be racist, to lie themselves into power, which is pathetic.

  38. rebecca

    by 77 i mean 82. k sorry.

  39. woodhorse

    77: Dark skin is definitely prettier than pale skin – hence the tanning products. It’s also healthier (less psoriasis, wrinkles, exzema, skin cancer, rosaecea). I didn’t have a choice with light skin but I did choose not to eat like a hog so I wouldn’t be fat. Kelly has the money to lipo those hippo thighs and pay for a Personal Trainer to kick her fat ass away from the dinner table once in awhile. How is food addiction any different than drug addiction? Nobody feels bad telling a drunk to quit drinking so why should I feel bad telling a fat person not to eat so much?

  40. schack

    sorry,

    fat people, smokers and mexicans are the new black

  41. bungoone

    83, you’re talking to yourself. again, you’re just proving your level of stupidity has surpassed even krazihotkelli.

    thanks for playing though!

  42. schack

    i disagree, woodhorse. considering the devastating social consequences of fatness, i don’t think anyone would CHOOSE it as a way of life.

    if you’ve got the ears for it, i’ll give you my theory on why people get fat.

  43. Kamiki

    Well shit who looks better Clarkson or the Olsen freak featured above her I know who I pick. She’s a damn sight better than her or Nicole Richie.

  44. Lys

    81

    never mind

  45. Kamiki

    hey 83 do you know its capitalise (or capitalize if you are an American speller)
    either way its definitely not capitilize, just for you sugar – http://www.dictionary.com MWAH

  46. woodhorse

    I know a lot of the reasons why people get fat. I know a lot of the reasons why people use drugs. Everyone has problems in their path – they either deal with it or they don’t. It’s not even an issue of attractiveness really, (Jack Black is HOT)- it’s a health issue. I’m not rich so I have to watch what I eat and excercise – I don’t have the luxury of paying for surgery to have an instant 6 pack like Janet Jackson et al, so I don’t feel sorry for someone who can more easily come by what I have to work my ass off for. Whatever her reason is for being overweight, she is not dealing with it and her life will be less for it.

  47. caveman

    man she kicked bulimias ass & then some.

  48. Mia

    89

    Well, your right that fat people should exercise. But this girl isn’t fat at all. A fat person should exercise only when is health is in danger. This girl isn’t unhealthy. Freaky Paris, Nicole, Keira are skinny as hell and they should be more concern about their health than Kelly Clarkson should.

  49. rebecca

    96 – “Jack Black is HOT”

    i hope to god you’re joking.
