The word fat has been getting WORN out these days. Am I right?
While checking out some of the fashions from last night’s American Music Awards, I noticed that all the buzz was surrounding singer Christina Aguilera’s silver Herve Leger dress that was worn during a performance of the song, “Moves Like Jagger” with Maroon 5 (MY JAM). Okay, so homegirl didn’t look all that, and she possibly could have thrown on some SPANX with this skintight look. We get that. But what I’m sick of people saying about this girl and many women in general who dress like her form time to time is that she is FAT.
At this point, with folks still trying their damndest to starve themselves into a size 0 and others saying a size 16 is the new average, who the hell really knows what’s considered, big, small and unhealthy anymore? But when I look at Aguilera in this outfit, I don’t think saying she is fat is fair, and it’s pretty incorrect. If anything, like many women who just want to throw on a freak’em dress and…well…”freak’em,” Aguilera should have worn this dress in a larger size. And with most of her clothing choices these days, which have had to have been too close for comfort for her, she needs to do a better job of dressing for her size and not for the size she wishes she was.
Times are hard for everyone, and I understand that folks would rather try and struggle into jeans they’ve outgrown rather than spend a grip on a new pair of pants, but when I see a lot of women on the street with muffin tops poking out or jeans so tight I can’t breathe, I don’t think, “Damn, she’s SOOOO fat.” Instead, I think, “Wow, that does NOT fit,” and go about my business. I could be alone in thinking that a few style missteps with your size that cause some unsightly lumps, bumps and tires doesn’t make someone a “fatty.”
