During a recent interview with AllHipHop.com, R&B singer, author and actor Tyrese, was very vocal about how he feels about ‘fat’ people. I personally hate that word and think it’s both derrogatory and insensitive, but the ‘Sweet Lady,’ singer seems to think that tough advice is the best cure for obesity.
AHH: What kind of responsibility do you feel as an entertainer, you have to inspire people to live healthier lifestyles?
No two situations are the same. If you are fat and nasty and you don’t like the way you look, do something about it. It’s simple. When you take a shower and you put your fat, nasty body in the shower and by the time you get out, the mirrors are all steamed up so you don’t look at what you did to yourself. That may sound offensive or insensitive but ultimately, you are big as hell because you have earned that sh*t. You worked your a** off to eat everything in sight to get big as hell. If you got a problem with the way you look, then you need to do something about it. Excuses sound best to the people that’s making them up.
Tyrese also opened up about his stuggle with weight gain, explaining that at one point he put on an extra 50 pounds.
“How lucky is it that mirrors steam up after a hot shower?” Tyrese asks. “I didn’t have to look at what I’d done to myself.” And every morning for a year, he didn’t look.
Wow. How tragic for Tyrese. He suffered from self esteem issues for 1 whole year. I’m going to let you all have this one.
