Okay, I have an embarrassing confession to make. I read the tabloids. Not only do I read them, I have them delivered to my home. Let me begin by explaining that I need to read. Something. Anything. Before we moved out to the country, I got the Star and Tribune delivered to my house. I would “wake” up each morning with my coffee and the newspaper. Out here I could get it but it gets delivered with my mail and I really see no point in getting the paper in the afternoon. I didn’t have the Internet either when I moved so I ordered these magazines to read in order to wake up.
I also had a subscription to People when it was first a magazine and it wasn’t trash back then. It was a good “reliable” magazine. It wasn’t like it is now. I would never quote anything from them nor take anything they say as fact. Both Sue and Nikki read them too and mostly, we just laugh. I love to sit and read when I eat my lunch and a book is so hard to hold so that’s really the only reason I get these. I get People, Star and Life & Style.
Whack me with a wet noodle!! Go ahead, I deserve it. I have figured out a way to get my book to stay open so I really have no excuse as to why I still get them other than it’s just a very old habit.
But when I saw and read this last night my blood just started to boil. Not in any way about the “celebrity” but for all our young people in general and what they see and what they must think “normal” is. You look at this and see if you see the same thing as I do and did.
This is what was written along the side.
WTH???? What TINY baby bump???? I’ve never looked like this. It looks as though my youngest grandson Christopher could blow her over. Is it just a “headline” to grab our attention? How in good conscience can people get away with writing things like this? TINY BABY BUMP????? No wonder there are so many eating disorders among our young if they think this to be a TINY BABY BUMP!!!! Sorry I keep using caps but I’m on rant. This makes me so mad. Our girls as well as our boys should feel okay to be how they are without a magazine telling us that this “movie” star has a TINY BABY BUMP and implying that she’s getting *fat* Because, isn’t that what the implication is here?
This may be just the thing for me to stop giving my money to these people because I’m telling you………………….this really ticks me right off.
