"I Think That's Crazy"

Questionable past statements and the oceanic amounts of liquid liner she rips through have often brought into question Gwen Stefani’s sanity. She’s never come off as a maniacal maniac or a psychotic psycho, but she does exhibit signs of a sharp personality disorder. And now this, allaying all speculation:

My grandmother was one of those really obese women and I think that frightened my mom. I’ve always been on a diet, ever since I was in the sixth grade. It was out of my mother’s love for me.

Ding-ding-ding! Her mom screwed her up! No more guesswork and no more dubbing her hypocritical nonsense “a new brand of feminism.” Now get this starving canvas to a doctor.

No. 1 deimos says:

here’s a thought, instead of putting your child on a diet so they don’t become obese why not just feed them food that’s good for them and not 99% sugar?

My dad put me on a diet when i was in the 6th grade too. Weird. Since I was medically underweight at 12, I can see how that might screw someone up.

I’ve been on a diet forever too. We had public weigh in’s for dance and cheerleading. Everybody knew if you gained weight. Nothing like a little public shame to keep you off the carbs. Luckily they aren’t allowed to do that anymore.

I have to be honest, I was a casual acquaintance of Ana back in the day. But it was mostly because I would have $10 in my pocket and have to decide if I wanted to eat or just get some beer. Budweiser is very filling y’all.

Sar, you and me both. Yeah, my swim coach told my parents I was too heavy. I remember it so vividly, I broke through 80 lbs as a 9 or 10 year old. (I was muscular though!) So I was on a diet - which my mom didn’t enfore too much (except NO junk food) - but I still felt like I needed to sneak food. When I quit swimming and I got hefty. Sometimes I still feel like I have to sneak food at my parent’s house.

Remember when Anna Nicole was fighting for the old dude’s estate. Well, the maid said that to get oldie to sign something Anna was all “want to see the rose buds, sign and I will show them to you.” But the maid got it wrong and said “rosebushes,” which, given the size of Anna’s bosom, was HILARIOUS.

No. 90 Lily the Pink says:

deimos, I had a similar problem. I modeled as a teenager and at 5′9″ and 115-120lb. I was a told I was too fat. Sadly, my mom never thought anything of it but, she was 5′11″ and 115 lbs. and my BFF was a ballerina. My mom thought she was fat, and on several occasions I had heard my best friend comment on how she admired this girl whose ribs and hips stood out several inches from her abdomen. These were probably not the best role models for body image, and definitely weren’t helping balance anything. Fortunately, my two closest male friends basically staged an intervention because they thought I had an eating disorder. When I told them it was just the diet the agency had me on they freaked out, which opened my eyes to the insanity I was being put through (or “through which I was being put,” for the grammar gang).

When I think about it, the last thing I needed as a teenager was someone peddling neuroses while pretending to be the personification of the new style of female empowerment. Quite frankly, if Gwen is going to continue to tout herself as some kind of feminist icon she needs to get her shit straight. It’s hard enough being a teenage girl without someone sending mixed messages.
