Kelly Osbourne has recently written an autobiography (who knew?) and has also lost weight. According to the Sydney Morning Herald:
Kelly Osbourne, a one-time champion for curves, is also proud of her recent weight-loss of seven kilograms. This was achieved by a revolutionary diet where Osbourne swapped her usual fare of chips and soft drink for ”fresh foods’.
See, it’s just that easy! Thank you, The Media. Anyway, she’s done an interview with the UK Mirror where she talks about how being called fat drove her to drugs and drink–but she still doesn’t like herself.
Do you ever wish you werenâ€™t famous?
KO: [W]hen I was 15 I had people writing about how fat and ugly they thought I was. They still do it now and it still hurts, but not as much as it did back then… I gained a bunch of weight because mum had been diagnosed with cancer and I had been miserable, and he had an airbrushed picture of me on TV and said, â€˜Thatâ€™s not you, youâ€™re fat.â€™ I remember feeling like I just wanted to crawl into a hole, and when I got home I cried for about two weeks. Comments like that led me to drugs and alcohol. When youâ€™re 15 and youâ€™re suddenly faced with, â€˜youâ€™re fat, youâ€™re ugly, youâ€™re just a celebrityâ€™s daughterâ€™, youâ€™re like, â€˜I never wanted to be famousâ€™.
Are you happy with yourself now?
KO: I think Iâ€™m OK. I wouldnâ€™t say Iâ€™m happy with myself. I would love to be a bit skinnier, every girl would.
Oh, honey. Put the blame on the media, not on yourself! (And please don’t throw out that stereotype of “every girl,” either, while you’re at it.)
By the way, in other celebrity news, the National Enquirer has Star Jones on the cover with the headline “Star Jones Packs on 45 Pounds!” I flipped through it at the supermarket (when I was loading up my cart with “chips and soft drink,” of course) and it was all “She looked so great after she had WLS! When she was thin! But now she’s ‘ballooning’! OMG!” So we have more of those stories to look forward to, I guess, if it’s true…!
