Don't Make Me Defend Kate Moss

She is being criticized for saying that "nothing tastes as good as being thin feels."


People are outraged that a high fashion model, whose job requirement is to be undernourished, has a Weight Watchers motto?

Who are we kidding?

I find it a lot more offensive when skinny women say shit like "oh, I never diet" and "I just run after my kids, and that keeps the weight off." What. are their kids marathoners or something?

Yes, models are skinny. Because they don't eat as much as we do. I don't get the outrage.

And honestly, it's Kate Moss. She's not famous because of her pithy commentary on world affairs, so who cares?

I'm thin and I fucking love it. There I said it.

I don't get the outrage either. That saying has been around for years. In fact I'm sure I remember hearing Oprah say it sometime in the 90's.

Yeah, I've heard that saying before, too. It's not like Kate Moss made it up.

And I loved being thin, too.

Jane said...

It's because the phrase she said is the slogan of a pro-anorexia web site targeted at teens and college students.

I've always thought that was a Gloria Vanderbilt quote. And mercy, that woman knew THIN.
