Ellie Goulding: “I hated my chin, my nose, my eyebrows”

June 4, 2015 in General by Versus44 Comments »


On being insecure with her looks:

“When I started out, I couldn’t cope with it. I didn’t quite know who I was supposed to be. I was never confident in my looks. I hated my chin, my nose, my eyebrows. I was told by people at my record company to watch videos of other girls, like Little Boots, and Elly Jackson from La Roux, and try and look like them. I had panic attacks so bad I couldn’t leave my flat; I couldn’t bear people looking at me. I would worry that I would never be able to sing because I couldn’t even get up. I was also horribly ashamed of myself because I felt like some sort of drama queen and all I wanted to be was strong.”

… says Ellie in Elle.

Carrie Underwood Talks Post-Baby Workout Plan

June 4, 2015 in Carrie Underwood by Versus23 Comments »


On getting back in shape after pregnancy:

“Having a baby definitely changes your routine, and I have to work around his schedule. Whenever he goes to sleep, I do the things I need to do for myself and make workouts happen when they can. I really haven’t taken that much time ‘off’ because there are always things to do.”

“Doing something, hiking, going for a run, lifting weights, boxing, doing things like that. It makes me feel good. It is great to do something for me, and that is something for me. I think that women should make time. A little time, 20 minutes, 30 minutes.”

… says Carrie, who gave birth 3 months ago.

Lauren Conrad Bans Body-Shaming Terms: Skinny & Thin from Her Website

June 3, 2015 in Lauren Conrad by Versus38 Comments »


Lauren Conrad is, among others, the owner of a lifestyle website and her June theme is “Shape Up” – and besides tips and fitness inspiration, she vows to stop using ‘body shaming’ terms such as ‘skinny or ‘thin’. Here’s what she says:

It’s that time of the year again… swimsuit season. I make an effort to eat healthy and exercise all year round. But when summer hits and the layers of clothing come off, fitness becomes even more of a priority for me. So with that in mind, our June theme here on LaurenConrad.com is going to be Shape Up. You can expect all the great fitness content you’ve come to know and love here on the site, including my LaurenConrad.com Bikini Boot Camp series. But, you’ll also notice one key difference…

When we’ve talked about getting in shape in the past, words like ‘skinny,’ ‘slim,’ and ‘thin’ have often come up. Starting this month, we’ll be banning any body shaming terms from the site, and replacing them with words like ‘fit’ ‘toned,’ and ‘healthy.’ We try do to this for the most part anyway, but now we’re making it official! The word skinny will now be reserved for skinny jeans. My editorial team and I had a long talk about it, and we want to make sure that the focus is on being fit as opposed to a number on the scale. Every body is created differently–and healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes.

What do you think about Lauren’s initiative? Share your thoughts!
