The past couple of days I haven't been able to turn on the TV, or get on the internet without hearing about Britney Spears' VMA performance. As bad as her performance was, all anybody is talking about is how "fat" she is! That really disgusts me!! Take a real good look at this picture people, because this is the new definition of "fat" in our society. Does that not scare anyone? And people wonder why so many young girls have eating disorders and self-image issues! No, I'm not surprised at all! It's not surprising, because every time you pick up a magazine or turn on the TV you see pictures of people like Tyra Banks with headlines that say "America's Next Top WADDLE." What the hell people?? When I was little, "fat" was people like Rosie O'Donnell (sorry Rosie) not Britney Spears! When did looking healthy become fat??? I really would like to know! If people like Britney and Tyra are considered fat, what does that say for the rest of the world? When I look at that picture of Britney, all I see is a really tacky outfit. I DO NOT see a "lard" as one person called her. I see a healthy, normal sized woman. And after having two children within two years, I think she looks dang good!
