When Does Curvy Stop Being Cool?
The other day, I saw this picture of Lady Gaga 'revealing her new curvy figure.' According to her, she's gained 25 pounds. How did she get such good press? Usually, when a famous person gains weight, the headlines read something like, 'So and So Packs On the Pounds,' or 'So and So Caught Hogging Out at Burger King.'
Here's the random question that popped into my mind when I read the headline: how much weight would Gaga have to gain before she would no longer be viewed as just 'curvy?' Another twenty five pounds? Fifty pounds? One hundred pounds? At some point would her fans stop seeing her as a role model?
How fat can Gaga get and still be cool?
