I am currently sitting at my desk listening to “From a Distance” by Bette Midler. I think my headphones may be jacking up my brain. I have found that since I started blogging, I put my more useless status updates on here rather than on Twitter and Facebook. I can’t tell if that is a good thing or not. I could have predicted that would happen. Since the status update was invented, I have sought the medium that I am addicted to the most at the time to let everyone know that I would be eating, sleeping, working, crapping, driving and whatever else inane activity AND what time I was doing all that. I am not a very private person. If you have known me for any length of time, you will know most everything about me. Perhaps I should keep things more sacred but if I did...what would I tell my 3’s of readers?
I have been thinking a lot today about Kelly Clarkson. This isn’t the first time. I love her music and overall I think she is precious and on days when I give Jennifer Garner a break from being my girl crush, she or Carrie Underwood fits the mold just fine. Usually, I am concerned for KC’s (yah I abbreviated it) career. I mean I KNOW how great ALL I EVER WANTED is and how ALMOST awesome MY DECEMBER was...but I am afraid everyone else is gravely uninformed. The fear of her fading from celebrity is not why I have been thinking of her lately though. I saw her on Diva’s and while I do agree that her derriere is rather thick...I do NOT think she is fat like people are saying. I HATE when blogs and news outlets point out when people have gained weight and all of a sudden they are labeled as fat. I would just like to point out that a size 6, 8, 10 or even 12 is not fat and if you think it is...I’m giving you my big fat middle finger right now. Can you even imagine the pressure celebrities (especially women) feel if they gain even 10 pounds? Of course, Kelly Clarkson isn’t the only one that has faced scrutiny. People have also called Jessica Simpson fat. They try to cover it up and say that what ruined her career was her country album (which I still contend was not THAT bad...ahem) but I say it had A LOT to do with the probably only 10-15 pounds she put on. If people will remember...she lost about 50 pounds for a movie...could you maintain that? Kirstie Alley and Oprah are also called out every time they fluctuate. Even Kevin Federline is all over the news...why does anyone care if HE gains weight. He is a complete loser who feeds (literally) off of a divorce check...OF COURSE HE’S FAT! Anyway, I don’t care how big Kelly Clarkson gets...she can sit on the end of the stage with an Italian BMT for all I care as long as her voice doesn’t crack when she hits the climax of “Because of You.” Leave people in Hollywood alone. Look at yourself for once.
OK-I think the rant is over. I am just glad that my Before & After pics aren’t on the front page of the local paper every time I fluctuate. I worked out really hard this morning so I hope that continues tomorrow...I will let you know I’m sure.
