Kelly Osbourne Calls Herself Fat And Stands Up To Bully Christina Aguilera
Bullies and body image issues are two things many of us are very familiar with. With movies like The Bully Project addressing the dangers of bullying and all this talk negative about weight (which Jennifer Lawrence and Miley Cyrus can both attest to), it seems that those two issues are things we just can’t avoid. One celeb who can empathize with such issues: Miley’s BFF and Fashion Police co-host Kelly Osbourne. In a very candid column in the latest issue of Glamour magazine, the 26-year-old hostess reveals her continuous body image issues as well as gives great advice on body confidence.
“I call myself an FFP: former fat person. And when you’re an FFP, you will always see in yourself what people used to bully you for,” Kelly writes.
“Even now I don’t consider myself skinny. But I have put a lot of hard work into my body over the years, and in the process, I’ve really learned to love myself.”
Kelly cited her very public feud with The Voice coach Christina Aguilera, whom Kelly previously called out on Fashion Police as someone who used to bully her about her weight. On the show she recalled: “She called me fat for so many f***ing years. So you know what? F**k you! You’re fat too.”
That comment is something Kelly doesn’t regret saying and still stands by.
“I didn’t say I wasn’t fat. I said, ‘Now you know how it feels.’ I’m famous, and she’s famous; it doesn’t mean I can’t stand up for myself. I took it for 10 years and decided to be like, ‘You know what? I’m done,'” she said, adding “that’s the last thing I will ever say about it.”
