Cheryl Fernandez-Versini: “I’m not anorexic!”

August 17, 2015 in Cheryl Cole, Then and Now by Versus


On receiving a lot of body criticism for losing a considerable amount of weight:

No, I’m not anorexic. It all started with a girl on Instagram calling us a bag of bones. At the time I was thinking people are so quick to judge without thinking, ‘Is there a reason why this person might be like that?’. Right now I feel like we are facing a lot of body issues in general – girls expected to have big booties, girls with thin legs – and it’s impossible. It needs to slow down, or stop. It’s highlighting body insecurities and it’s not right. I work 12 to 14 hours a day. I don’t even have time at the moment to exercise – and I don’t need to either. It’s nice that people are concerned, but, honestly there’s no cause for concern. You can see I am completely and utterly well and happy.

… says Cheryl.

Iggy Azalea on Getting a Nose Job: “I’m not denying it”

August 5, 2015 in Iggy Azalea, Then and Now by Versus


On whether she’s had a nose job:

“I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame. I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I’ve spoken about the changes I’ve made, like with my breasts.”

On plastic surgery and beauty:

“Your perception of yourself can change a lot over time, so I think it’s important to wait and make sure it’s the right choice. Plastic surgery is an emotional journey. It’s no easy feat to live with your flaws and accept yourself—and it’s no easy feat to change yourself. Either way you look at it, it’s a tough journey. There are things that I didn’t like about myself that I changed through surgery. There are other things I dislike but I’ve learned to accept. It’s important to remember you can’t change everything. You can never be perfect. On whether her looks are under more scrutiny now: “It’s hard to be a woman in 2015 with social media. There’s so much more emphasis on taking pictures of ourselves and the ‘likes’ or people commenting on them. There’s a lot more pressure to look beautiful. Some days I just want to look like sh*t and feel okay with that.”

… says Iggy in Seventeen Magazine.

Jennifer Lopez: “I see pictures of myself in my twenties and go, “Oh, I look better now!”

May 21, 2015 in Jennifer Lopez, Then and Now by Versus


On her looks:

I embrace who I am. I feel sexy, I feel youthful, I feel pretty sometimes. I think a healthy body image comes from being the best you, not competing with anybody else. You know, I’m not a 6-foot tall model…I’m not a size 2. And when I came to Hollywood, that’s what the world was filled with. I was fine being me and I think that changed a lot of people’s thinking. I work out, but I’m not as much of a fanatic as I used to be. And, funnily enough, I feel like I’m in better shape now. I see pictures of myself in my twenties and go, “Oh, I look better now!”

… says Jennifer.
