My attempt at an Onion-esque article.
In a bold move this week, singer Katy Perry reported to Elle magazine that the 5'7", 130 pound woman is happy with her weight. The star, known for singing it up with Snoop Dogg in "California Gurls," has reportedly decided to embrace her curvy self, which is in the lower range of "normal" according to the Body Mass Index.
Perry follows in the footsteps of other brave and completely normal weight performers who have stated that they are happy with their figures, such as Eva Longoria, Kate Winslett, and Drew Barrymore.
Women around the country, who would die to look anything like any of these svelte ladies, have reported how comforting Perry's admission is.
"If someone who is completely gorgeous, with flat abs and a big chest, like Katy Perry can decide to be happy with her looks, it really gives hope to me that maybe I too can be happy with my looks someday, after I get a boob job, a nose job, and lose 20 pounds," reports Jennifer Hardick, an average looking woman from Madison, Wisconsin.
In fact, some curvy ladies are making the bold step of accepting their weight right now.
"I know that I'm curvy, and I probably always will be," says Cynthia Green, who is 5'8" and weighs 125 pounds. "But I've realized that I just have to learn to love myself and my curves now, even if I am still a size 4."
Retailers are considering new fashion lines for completely normal weight ladies like Cynthia who are ready to love their curves.
"We're working on a line right now called 'Free to Be Me' that will help women learn to embrace their plumper size 4-6 figures," says Mila Kepowizc, of The Gap.
Women looking to embrace their curves can find clothing that will cater to their unique needs at stores such as Banana Republic, J Crew, and other "plus-size" retailers offering extended sizes from 2-8.
