Rihanna Talks Body Image


In a recent interview with You magazine, Rihanna spoke out about how the fashion industry is pressuring young girls into becoming model skinny.

RiRi tells the mag:

“You shouldn’t be pressured into trying to be thin by the fashion industry, because they only want models that are like human mannequins. They know that if we see an outfit on a mannequin in a shop window we will love it and want to buy it whatever size we are. That’s why they have size zero models – they want to sell clothes. You have to remember that it’s not practical or possible for an everyday woman to look like that. Being size zero is a career in itself so we shouldn’t try and be like them. It’s not realistic and it’s not healthy.”

Well said Rihanna!

But what about the models themselves? They’re also getting super skinny by any means possible just to get their foot into the business.

Do U agree with her statement???
