The New Normal
There’s a fresh breed of power house celebs today: a smart, beautiful star who’s too busy being successful to worry about a few extra kilos.
What do Mindy Kaling, Christina Aguilera, Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha and Khloé Kardashian have in common? They’re all members of the same club: normal-size women who wear a few kilos here or there as a badge of honour—and with badass equanimity. Recently, Parineeti told Cosmo that she’s totally happy with how she looks. “I don’t have the body structure to be a Size Zero, but the crucial thing is that I don’t have the motivation to be skinny... I’m such a big foodie.” Sonakshi feels the same way: “I’m not the Size Zero kinds, which I’m absolutely okay with.” Across shores, Mindy Kaling’s show, The Mindy Project, is a huge success, and has little to do with her body. “I am not model skinny but also not super-fat,” she writes in her memoir, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? And Khloé just nabbed a coveted spot as a co-host on The X Factor, while musicians like Christina write their own tickets through sheer creativity and talent. These women aren’t just fearless; they’ve achieved so much, too! And that’s because slipping into a Size Zero is not a priority for them. They choose to focus on doing amazing things instead. And with everything they’ve accomplished so far, we’d say they’re in excellent shape.
