Disappointing because I legitimately thought for a second that she’d made some really great points and illustrated a non-hypocritical message. The quotes, which may have originated on Tumblr, referred to a frantic meeting her label had to discuss her new look.
“During the promotion of my album Stripped, I got tired of being a skinny, white girl, I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl,” she said in the excellently crafted fake interview.
“The next time my label saw me, I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! Let me tell you, that wasn’t an easy pill for them to swallow. I had gained about 15 pounds during promotion.”
“They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight. Basically, they told me I would affect a lot of people if I gained weight — the production, musical directors.”
“I told them during this Lotus recording, ‘You are working with a fat girl. Know it now and get over it.’ They need a reminder sometimes that I don’t belong to them. It’s my body. My body can’t put anyone in jeopardy of not making money anymore – my body is just not on the table that way anymore.”
Where’s the fake interview with Britney about her label’s meeting over the marbles she lost in 2004? I want to read that one too.
