Would you EVER chose to rightfully call a celebrity fat, let alone a strong and beautiful woman like Pink?
I think not…because you know you’re asking for trouble…
Mamas, we have all been there…getting ready for an event and thinking ‘I look fat’ when in fact the person staring back at you is a reflection of your own insecurities, not reality itself. So what happens when people actually call you out and publicly call you fat? For Pink, she took the opportunity to show women everywhere that she is happy with herself and her body, instead of hiding under a rock.
As a mother of 2, who struggles with my weight everyday, I can honestly say that Pink’s reaction and timing couldn’t have been any more perfect. Afterall, who is really judging us? Who are these ‘people’ on the internet typing these things, what is a healthy weight for YOU, and how do people know what is best for your own happiness?
“I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You’re referring to the pictures of me from last night’s cancer benefit that I attended to support my [dear] friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you. While I admit that the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about [me]. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either 🙂 … I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake.”
Pink has made me ‘learn to love again’…love my body that is.
Forever a loyal Pink fan <3
