I Could Care Less What People Think of Me…This Chick Rocks!

I Could Care Less What People Think of Me…This Chick Rocks!

First, I need to give mad love to Adele who not only looked stunning at the Grammys but sounded amazing. Rolling in The Deep is one of my favorite songs off her 21 CD. The girl is bad with a capital B and I love the fact that she embraces her curves and believes that her talent stands for itself not her looks or her current weight. True talent is standing in front of a mic and captivating the audience with your voice, not with props, fireworks, and a bunch of dance moves that make you look like you’re having convulsions. True talent doesn’t include exorcisms either (scratches head…..Nicki Minaj).

Now for the issue, I’m sure Karl Lagerfeld is eating his words just last week he claimed that although Adele is the thing at the moment, she was too fat. Well I’m not sure if Mr. Chanel has taken a good look in the mirror lately he’s not exactly what I would call an Adonis.  Nothing pisses me off more than people who use to be “fat” lose weight and then talk shit about other “fat” people. He lost close to 100 lbs and at one point in time designed clothes he himself couldn’t fit. Also, as a gay man I would think he would know what it feels like to be discriminated against. Lagerfeld has been notorious with his “fat” comments over the past few years and I personally won’t pick up a pen that says Chanel. Immediately after his comments about Adele, a campaigned was launched to boycott Chanel and Lagerfeld had to make an apology that of course was half hearted.

I’ve viewed several news stories on the Grammys over the past day. One thing I like to do is read comments posted by various people. When reading the comments about Adele, I noticed that many people referred to her as obese and also people blasted Jennifer Hudson for looking about 2 lbs heavier. In my world, curvy, thick, fat, and obese all mean something different but in someone else’s world if you’re not a size 2 or 4….you’re basically fat. Here’s my thought,

If you look at other people and judge them based off what you feel is a physical flaw, you’re the one with the problem and the issue, work on yourself!

The number on the scale doesn’t matter as long as you’re happy with who you are. As Adele stated “I could care less what people think of me” in regards to her weight and I for one agree!

I can truly appreciate designers like Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Donna Karan, IGIGI, and Monif C who makes clothes for the full figure woman. I can also give props to magazines like Essence, Glamour, and Marie Claire who make an effort to include women of all sizes.

All Women Rock Regardless of the Number on the Scale!
