With the influx of attention-starvation up since the invent of real-time social media, the turn up on insulting and demeaning is big…and NO ONE’s exempt: celebrities, news media, politics on down to regular people just hanging out on the Internet all day…even the more serious and real life realms of media are doing it. The harder the insult or degradation, the bigger the attention (or publicity) called out to it-therefore 15 seconds or minutes of fame secured.
*get out the violins*
The great, grand (
tired a&& contrived) apology.
Believe it or not, in case you haven’t looked/paid attention to your surroundings, 15 minutes (or seconds) is cool with them (even if they stand nothing no gain, barter, sell or trade for it) fifteen seconds of attention is the highlight of their day-they’ll take it-even better if the backlash or consequence of what was said or done goes viral.
The show (and cycle of patheticness is on-all day everyday–like what you’re about to read…
(And when you’re done…scroll up to the top of the OSF screen to listen to my favvvvvvvvvvvorite song I love by her and am known to belt out. I love singing this song and playing it while I drive. I get such POWER-so diesel from it. I sing that song with ease but totally feel like I had a great workout after it. It’s crazy…It’s my personal
fight plight song where “Mr. Know it All” (for me) is “To Whom it May Concern” …down to every syllable and lyric!
Ironically, it’s quite timely and appropriate for this blog and story.
What didn’t kill her really did make her stronger!
In February, Katie Hopkins—who has been dubbed the “most hated woman in Britain”—began fat-shaming Kelly Clarkson after seeing her on The Graham Norton Show. “Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnorton,” Hopkins tweeted. The “Heartbeat Song” singer’s fans came to her defense, and on March 3, Hopkins addressed her comments once again. “Look chubsters, Kelly Clarkson had a baby a year ago,” the 40-year-old TV personality tweeted. “That is no longer baby weight. That is carrot cake weight. Get over yourselves.”
Clarkson, who does not follow Hopkins on Twitter, was unaware of the online bullying.
“She’s tweeted something nasty about me?” the singer asked after Heat magazine mentioned it.
After she was informed of what Hopkins wrote about her, the three-time Grammy winner said, “That’s because she doesn’t know me. I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will. I’ve just never cared what people think. It’s more if I’m happy and I’m confident and feeling good, that’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family—I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”
Sadly, Hopkins is still talking about the “Since U Been Gone” singer’s weight. “Kelly Clarkson is now a chunky monkey, if we’re putting it kindly,” she told ET. “She does look like she’s eaten her backup singers. My advice: she needs to get out there with her stroller and do some pushing and get some of that weight off.” Hopkins argued that her criticism comes from a good place, and she called out the pop star’s fans for not making similar statements about her body. “We give fat really cute names, don’t we? We have baby weight, puppy fat, love handles, muffin top, chunky monkey—ultimately these are all nice names for something that’s not very nice…You’re supporting Kelly Clarkson because everybody likes to have a fat friend, because the great thing about a fat friend is it makes you feel slimmer,” Hopkins said.
The vitriol didn’t end there.
Hopkins hit below the belt by criticizing Clarkson’s 8-month-old daughter, River Rose, saying, “Every fat child has a fat parent. And that’s—for me—why (cont’d)
