Fat Joe Speaks About His Weight Loss
Fat Joe made headlines over the summer after he revealed his new slimmed down figure. He has now explained that the only reason he decided to lose weight was to improve his health, so that he can stay around long enough to take care of his family...
"I'm just trying to get healthy so I can be here for my family and take care of my kids and live the life that was intended for me to live, so it was crazy when I started getting all this attention," Fat Joe told MTV News.
When asked if he would be changing his stage name as a result of his significant weight loss, the New York rapper replied: "I’m Fat Joe, I’m still fat. You know the fact is if I didn’t do it for health reasons, I would be f****n’ one thousand pounds happy! I love to eat, that’s what I do."
