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*

    Ok Kelly, by now one would think you would have enough money to buy a new bikini. One that’s up to adte perhaps? Oh well, kudos for not giving a f*ck!

    I am a huge Kelly Clarkson fan. I am also bulimic. It really hurts me to read some of the comments a lot of people made about Kelly and about bulimia. People clearly need to be educated about bulimia the disease. I can understand how some people thinks she is ugly or overweight…the picture above is definately not the most flattering picture. But honestly, it’s about what’s inside..well for me. If you read the interview you will see that Kelly has an amazing personality and is a very smart lady. It breaks my heart to know that she went through something that I have been going through for four years! I totally understand why she started. A lot of young girls start this way among other things. I’m glad she quit, and I’m glad she quit cold turkey. Afterall she would not be the same Kelly and her voice would suck because of the acid burning her vocal chords.

    So she put on a few pounds. No problem with me. She is goerous with her own god given chest. She has is smart and caring. I think she is hot and i have alway’s. Give me Kelly over those phoney scank whore’s of hollywood any day. The are overrated and lets look at kelly in 10 years and those othe scanks in 10 years. You go Kelly I think you are great

    So she doesn’t look like a scrawny fake balloon boob anime/hollywood chick that has a pair of long willowy skeletor legs. O’ dear. What a -crime- to be normal. She is not in the least bit fat. To the person who mentioned she looks box-shaped: I think that’s more the camera angle. Most girls do not appear to have much of an “hour-glass” or “womanly” shape when they are turned that way towards a camera. I also would not say she is “pastey”. She has plenty of color to her skin. She’s just not super tan and probably won’t die of skin cancer like you dumbfucks will. I notice that on these sort of websites it doesn’t matter what the person looks like… you all seem to find something to point at. People like you scumbags have disgusting hearts and might I mention … the intelligence of a cinder blocks.

    Kelly Clarkson is an amazing woman. Even if you choose to ignore the fact that she has extraordinary talent, nothing gives you the right to criticize her body type this way. If she has gained weight since American Idol, that should be her concern and her own concern only; not that it’s something she needs to be concerned with at all. Ms.Clarkson is beautiful the way she is now, and the way she was then, and it is because of comments from ignorant and rude people like you that Bulimia is such a wide-spread disease in our society. And, yes, Bulimia is a disease, affecting 15% of American teens, and threatening the lives of many more with ages across the chart. Eating healthy, and exercising, are simple solutions to obesity; providing an answer that can be obtained without having to destroy your body. And to what extent do you starve yourself? So you can look just like Paris Hilton? Or some anorexic model, perhaps? Humans were not designed to be that thin, nor should they be expected to be. Humans do, however, have the ability to look absolutely breathtaking at any weight, assuming it’s healthy. And that’s all we should ever ask for, and expect.

    You guys are just fucking stupid. Sure she’s not anerexic, sure she could loose a little weight, but you guys are just a bunch of girly bitches who are to bored with your own lives that you’ll never get girlfriends or boyfriends cause you judge harshly! JEez

    THAT’S NOT FAT!!!!! That’s perfectly normal!

  10. Just a looker

    Every celebrity is beautiful in their own way. Skinney or not.

    You have to give her credit though, atleast she doesn’t look like a porn star or any of those barbie doll look-a-likes on the WWE.

    Why does everyone always have to criticize? Now, I realize, there is no such thing as “a world where everyone is nice and respectful to each other”, and lets face it, there probably never will be. But, to be commenting things like: “Fat Bitch!”, “BEACHED WHALE.”, or, “Maybe you should go back to that bulimia thing.” just makes you look ignorant. And personally, I think, that if you are going to be an uneducated, ignorant, dick heads, you shouldn’t comment. She has a great voice, and maybe she could be thinner, but it doesn’t matter – it shouldn’t. Half of the people making those comments are probably not good looking or super skinny either, so don’t be a hypocrite.
