Rex, if one of the reasons to like a celebrity is for her figure then shame on all of you. It's no ones business if Jessica lost or gained weight. She is NOT fat - she looks great & is a role model for young girls who can't & will never be stick skinny. People are born to be a certain weight & thats it. I'm not condoning pigging out but this may be the weight that is right for Jessica. As long as she is healthy & happy with herself, that is all that should matter. I wish all the critics would lay off her, maybe then she wouldn't have been so stressed at the concert!.

Chesley Sullenberger may have humbly agreed to do a few appearances, but he was forcefully shoved into the spotlight, thanks to the media, and their incessant repetition of his story. Next, they'll be telling us what he had for lunch, the restaurant at which he ordered it, the cost of the lunch, as well as the length, width, weight, and diameter of his subsequent bowel movement.

Celebrities don't choose to be scrutinized, or put under a microscope. I'd like to see that stipulation in the contract of any record deal, because I'm fairly certain that it doesn't exist. There is nothing about being a celebrity that constitutes being held to a higher standard than other human beings. Celebrities aren't infallable, God-like entities, nor should they expected to be. They're people. Though they may have incredible talents, they're still people.

The idea proported by the author of this article, that being that the media has some kind of obligation or constitutional right to invade anyone's privacy, is completely asinine. Anyone who agrees with the context of this article should seriously consider a labotomy.

i think that every body needs to lay off because it's not like shes 200 ponds or something. She's just being herself and doesnt care what anybody thinks of her! my friend tori thinks she's the perfect size.
