Cheryl Fernandez-Versini Thinks It's A 'Bad Message' To Call Obese People 'Curvy'
The singer has weighed in on the media's obessesion with body image.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has hit out at 'double standards' when it comes to people criticising her weight.
The X Factor judge has revealed in an interview with InStyle mag that she doesn't think it's 'healthy' to always use words such as 'curvy' when describing obese people.
"It's crazy double standards. You'd never be allowed to say to somebody, "Oh, you look a bit fat." And being overweight is unhealthy – it's actually a bad message to tell someone who is obese that they look "curvy" or "great",' she points out," Cheryl explains.
Adding: "But you know what? After this length of time, there's nothing I can hear about myself that I haven't already heard."
Her comments come not long after she called for body shaming to be made illegal.
As for how she's getting on on The X Factor?
"I'm like a sponge and I'm too sensitive. It was making us ill with stress and worry. People think, "Oh, she's sitting there in a pretty dress," but I get so wrapped up in the arguments that the contestants are having. It affects me," she said.
