Alessia Cara: “I started losing my hair in chunks in the shower”


20 year-old Canadian singer Alessia Cara recently opened up about her past issues with hair loss and how it affected her confidence:

In late elementary school, early high school, I started losing my hair in chunks in the shower. It was one of the scariest things. It got to the point where it was visibly gone,” she confessed. “I struggled with that a lot, especially going into high school. You have so many pressures—what people are going to think of you—and I was going into it losing all my hair. I had, like, nothing left. It was patches of missing hair that people would point out, because people are mean in high school.

… says Alessia.

And on a positive note:

“Fat girls can do whatever they want… Fat girls can run, fat girls can dance, fat girls can have amazing jobs. We can walk runways. We can be on the covers of magazines. Wear stripes. Bright colors. I am beautiful; I am sexy. There’s no ignoring this when it walks in the door. My size isn’t an indicator of my worth.”

Singer JoJo Used to Eat 500 Calories / Day to Lose Weight


On how the media affected her confidence:

I was around 17. My mom really kept me in a bubble, she was managing me. I wanted to separate our relationship. If people had an opinion about me and were coming to her about it [and saying they wanted me to lose weight] she never let me know about it. There just wasn’t as many places to be nasty in 2004, 2005 as there are now.

On going to extreme measures to lose weight:

Here’s something that I agreed to do that really ended up messing with me psychologically. I was under a lot of pressure from a company I was working with and they wanted me to lose weight fast. So they got me with a nutritionist and had me, like, on all these supplements, and I was injecting myself – this like is a common thing that girls do by the way. So it makes your body only need certain calories, so I ate 500 calories a day. This was the most unhealthy thing I had ever done. Then I gained all the weight back. I felt terrible about myself… I felt like ‘if I don’t do this, my album won’t come out’ and it didn’t. So it’s not like it even worked.

… says 25 year-old JoJo.

Ellen Pompeo: “Watching myself age on TV is miserable”


On being on Grey’s Anatomy for 11 years:

“At 33, I was wise enough to know my clock was already ticking in Hollywood. Watching myself age on TV is miserable. To be honest, it’s the toughest part of my job. But as uncomfortable as watching myself age is, I don’t think focusing on physical beauty is necessarily the best thing for your mind. It’s a natural thing that we all do, but I don’t think it’s the healthiest thing. The older you get, the more you realize life isn’t about your looks. Everyone ages, and it’s okay.”

… says 46 year-old Ellen.
