Jo’s in awe of new big and proud stars
JO BRAND admires the body positive movement, but says it has come too late for her.
‘There’s a very different attitude towards it now, which I kind of admire in a way, but I’m saddled with the “you shameful hulk” attitude that we had in my day. It was always the first thing people commented on.
‘I just got used to those blows and dealing with them, and it’s fine. But I couldn’t bring myself in this day and age to wear what much bigger women wear confidently. I don’t understand how they can do that, but I do admire it.’
Asked on the podcast Get It On if she might show up dressed as flamboyant singer and rapper Lizzo she says: ‘If I ever get asked on Songs of Praise, I will.’
