Should celebrities be skinny all the time? If a woman is size 12 does that make her fat? What about a size 5 or 8? The average woman in America is size 12 to 14 but the media wants us to strive to be a size 4. Would this be healthy for some? Here is one woman who I knew from the start I liked, used to be just for her voice but now her personality make me like her even more. See for yourself and let me know what you think?

Kelly Clarkson:

I’m Tired of Hearing

“the Fat Joke”

Kelly Clarkson says she’s tired of being bullied over her weight.

“For seven years it’s been happening. It’s like, ‘OK cool, the fat joke,'” she said during an interview with 2Day FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show in Australia.

Despite the taunts, the American Idol champ says, “I love my body. I’m very much OK with it. I don’t think artists are ever the ones who have the problem with their weight, it is other people.”

Clarkson has also come under scrutiny over her sexuality. She says she doesn’t care if people think she is gay.

Her only gripe?

“The rumors are not helping me on the dating front!” she said. “I prefer the boys. I’m extremely flattered when I do get hit on by girls, and I think it’s hot, but I’m not into it. I like boys.”

She said she’s in no rush to find Mr. Right.

“I’m only 27, not 40 and still single!” she said. “I enjoy being single, I love work and I think people are so passive with relationships and I’m not that person.”

Added Clarkson, “I’m an extremist, I’m either in a relationship or I’m not. I’m honest about it and I’ll tell people, it’s just there’s nothing to tell. I have a very good life.”

Alanis Morissette has had a fascinating music career so far. She started out in the 90’s as a pop princess. She had the big poofy hair, danced all the hip hop dance music and even rapped on one of her songs. Fast forward to a few years later…a few years older and decided to release music that had more of her own expression and emotions. She had a wide range of it on Jagged Little Pill, from sadness and anger to love. With each album she evolves to show us more of who she is, what she feels and extending her heart with us. She is currently on tour with Matchbox twenty starting today . She is set to come out with her new CD Flavors of Enaglement in April 2008 (according to Aceshowbiz.com). I thought I would share with everyone the old Alanis and the newer Alanis. This is the same song just the original was in 1991 and the redone is 2002.

TOO HOT – 1991

TOO HOT – 2002

Hope you like both of them

Dear Steve Perry,

In the 80’s you were in one of the most popular bands of the time…Journey. I was just entering Junior High School when I heard the album Infinity. I was hooked and from that point on a dedicated fan. The years took there toll on you, with concerts, a serious relationship ending, drugs and your mother dying. You came out with 2 solo albums while still with the band, Street Talk and For The Love of Strange Medicine. These were distinctly different from the work you did with Journey and showed that you have got chops. In the mid 90’s, after Journey hadn’t had an album out in quite some time, you and the band released Trial By Fire. When You Love a Woman was nominated for a Grammy, and the band was anxious to hit the road. You went on a vacation and I am to guess when you came back Journey would hit the road but this didn’t happen because you fell while hiking and injured your hip. You needed surgery and recovery and ths takes time but the band wasn’t willing to wait (well this is what I have been told), and they hired a new singer and went on the road, leaving you behind. You are a talented artist who can sing rock and roll, love ballads and a hell of a blues singer, but rumor has it that you will never sing again. I have heard you in 2 interviews where you said something similar to, Well See, it might not be the end of hearing about Steve Perry but you have yet to record an album. I know you produce and have been the force behind the Journey greatest hits DVD’s and CD’s but do you want to be remembered as the Cheesy singer from the 80’s or the Mullet guy? Entertainment Weekly just realesed The Ultimate Cheesy Ballad Playlist and there you are right at the top. I disagree that Don’t Stop Believin is cheesy but they think it is. I know I am not the only one who feels this way. When I hear you sing, I am overjoyed and your voice at times is like angels singing. I hope someone, in some way will get this blog to you and you will wake up and get in that recording studio…NOW.

You would think that after Princess Diana died that the Paparazzi would ease up on celebraties but it seems to just be getting worse. With photographers surrounding celebraties cars, blocking them in at stop lights and coming straight up to their windows. This to me is extremely evasive and rude. Recently the reporters were surrounding Britney Spears car so much she couldn’t get out and accidently ran over a photographers foot. Apparantely they don’t care about breaking laws either. Would be great to see one of these Paparazzi get ticketed by the police in the midst of there chasing celebraties and not obeying traffic laws but this hasn’t happened yet. Will it have to take someone dying or getting injured to stop them?

George Clooney is not afraid to speak his mind to the TMZ reporters chasing after his motorcycle. I think this is great that he isn’t afraid to let them know he doesn’t appreciate it.

Celebraties usually have stories written about there weight (I actually saw an article titled Angelina gains 10 lbs), about there love lives, and what they are wearing, seeing, doing, saying that is bad. So it was refreshing for me to open up In Touch Magazine and read a story about Renee Zellwelger doing something nice for a stranger. I was not able to get the story from In Touch Magazine online…but I found a similar story on Hollyscoop.com.

Note: This story doesn’t let the reader know that on average Manolo’s usually cost around $600.00 to $700.00 a pair. Would you buy a stranger shoes this expensive?

I hope you enjoy reading it.

Dear Britney,

Though the chances of you actually geting this is one in a million, I am writing it anyway.

I have been thinking of you lately, hard not to with you being in the news everyday. I haven’t been a huge fan of yours, I don’t own any of your cd’s, I do like a few of your songs though, Slave to You, Toxic and your newest Hit Gimme More. The cuteness, sexy thing bugged me, oops I did it again, that twirl the hair, I am so sweet and innocent thing but trying to be sexy…blah. Then evolved a bit with Not a girl but not quite a woman, speaking the truth about that awkward age in life when you are not a teenager anymore but not a full grown woman yet either.

I have watched you go from cutesy, sexy vixen, confused person. I thought back and rememberd my twenties…oh my no picnic there, confusing, sexual exploration, transformation, sometimes a bit too cutesy and wrapped up in a blanket of constant not knowing. I started to think wow, what would that be like and then add having huge fame, and being folowed every where you go, you gain 5 lbs and it is on the news, you cry in public it is in a tabloid, you where an outfit that is a wild choice and you are bashed nationally. Now this is part of the choice you made when wanting to be famous, but very stressful to deal with. I would have been a nervous wreck if every little thing I did was scrutinized.

Good for you taking chances, changing hair color, style, diving into discovery. I admire your shaving your head, for being sexy, for searching spirituality.

I want to tell you it is okay that you are not perfect, it is okay that you are going through discovery, I hope though that you take all you have gone through and choose to learn from it, You are so much stronger than you probably think you are. Your children love you, but love yourself first so you can be there for them, they need you. Don’t by in the media pressure or let them get to you. You are talented in many ways and turn to those who have come before you, those you admire like Madonna, who have been through this. For a while I saw you approaching spirituality and it seemed to focus you, I hope you go back to that. These days are not easy, hang in there. It does get easier though life is always this journey of growth, clarity comes when open to it. Allow yourself space to not be the center of attention but to look at the center of who you are and there you will find where you need to be going.
