J. Lo’s Ex-Manager Had the Audacity to Tell Her to Lose Weight
Despite having put curvaceous cakes on the map back in the late 90s, Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to douchebags telling her she needed to lose weight. And a new story confirms that even people she was paying to be nice to her (i.e. get her jobs) have body-shamed her before.
It all started at an event this week after a fan told her she’d inspired her to embrace her own bodacious bod, E! reports.
J. Lo responded by telling her about a former manager who had one too many opinions about her body:
“They kept telling me to lose weight, and I was a dancer and I was athletic and even my manager at the time who I no longer work with um was telling me, ‘You need to lose weight. You need to be thinner,'” she recalled. “I was like, ‘No I don’t. If I lose any more weight it won’t be me.’ You know what I mean?”
“It was a fight,” she continued. “It was definitely a fight, and so it’s good to hear that it helped anybody in some way because at the end of the day I was just trying to be myself without trying to fit into a mold of what everybody else should be.”
Now the question is: where’s that manager today? Hopefully J. Lo fired her in a fit of rage by shrieking, “You’ll never work in this town again,” but Idk, she seems a little too classy for that.
Either way, this isn’t the first time some fool has told a gorgeous woman to lose weight for the sake of public approval and it certainly won’t be the last. Can’t we all just get along and eat whatever the fuck we want?! Ugh.
