Was this an irresponsible comment from supermodel Kate Moss? The New York Post calls it a ‘horrifying endorsement of starving your way to supermodel thin’. And there’s no shortage of people who feel that her comment during a recent interview will encourage anorexia and other eating disorders.
Here’s an honest opinion on her statement from someone who admits to flirting with the pro-anorexia movement.
‘ I still stand by my belief that the media do not CAUSE anorexia, because without the right predisposition eating disordered behaviours are not likely to take hold in a person and become a fully fledged mental illness, but comments like that are still incredibly unhelpful. Sorry Kate, but I’m not buying it. Been there, done that…and you’re welcome to the t shirt. I don’t think it’d fit me.’
K and her friend are trying to lose weight – starting tomorrow. She think’s Kate has a point.
‘”Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” I feel like that is so true. I can’t wait to fit.I want so badly to wear a swimsuit and feel good in it. I don’t want to be left out of trends because I’m simply too big for them to look good on me.’
She says it’s one of the mottos she lives by, but is this something she should be sharing with us? Should Kate Moss have known better?
