Jessica Simpson Pregnant
February 24, 2012 by staff
Jessica Simpson Pregnant, Although Jessica Simpson has been on the receiving end of a lot of body-negativity during her career, she hasn’t developed an aversion herself to making such comments about pregnancy and its effects on the female form.
Simpson- who has been pregnant for like two years now, it feels like- was speaking about her upcoming appearance on NBC’s Fashion Star in March. The 31-year-old pop singer says the appearance was filmed before she was pregnant, so appearing on the show now will create a contrast that she described in some not flattering or body positive terms. Simpson was on a conference call plugging Fashion Star when she said:
“I wasn’t pregnant when we shot it. It will be amazing to see myself with a waistline. I’ll be like a big blob sitting on the couch watching myself thin.”
I guess she gets some kind of a pass for not knocking other pregnant women, but still, that kind of insidious self-hate has a way of infecting others who watch and listen- particularly when it comes from the mouths of celebrities. And most pregnant women don’t have a stylist, scads of money for a trainer, or a makeup artist to touch up their look before they have to appear in public- so she undoubtedly made more than a few women who saw or read her comments feel not that great about themselves.
