I think she knows she should lose weight

I sympathized for that struggle. However, I don't entirely sympathize with the struggle to fit Hollyweird standards to get jobs.

Is she crying because she wants to stay overweight and get better jobs? Is she crying because she's trying to lose the weight and it's not coming off quick enough? I can not compute the strong emotion for what Hollywood is not

I remember looking for her in every dance scene I've seen so far, and noticing they stick her way in back, and wondering if maybe she's also asking to be stuck back there?
 
Most of the people up front are the cheerleaders in short skirts, and even when they cut to her, it's very brief and moreso a face shot.
 
Yeah, that can't be easy.
 
When I see her though, I focus more on her hair than anything.  I'm still in Season 1 and I'm not liking her choice of wigs or weaves.


NO, she is not asking to be stuck back there. She's just put back there b/c the writers are stupid as fvck. it doesn't get better plot wise as the show progresses....she basically just sings the glory note. not many storylines...and the one she does have are just pushed to the side.

let me stop my bitterness: her hair gets better season 2. She's all natural though underneath.

ETA: she has some really good songs...when she gets the chance to sing. I really liked her cover of "I will always love you" and "Ain't no way".

Even when she loses weight she won't get any real roles because of her negro features. All the black girl roles go to Zoe Saldana and them other passable ones. They're not making another The Help for a minute.

i think she's just remembering how frustrated she is that people are not seeing past her size. the article only talks about one part of a whole TV show, not some random azz access hollywood interview she did last week. I'm sure remembering low points in her career are hard, esp. on camera.

i'm sure she knows that she needs to lose more weight to get to a healthier size, and she is taking steps to do so. between the first season of glee and now, she's lost quite a bit of weight.

Should she hate herself into a size 2? If she's trying to lose weight, and she already has, then clearly she's on the right track. Healthy weight loss doesn't happen overnight. What do you all want her to say? That she's miserable, and won't leave her house until she's at an acceptable Hollywood weight?

Right, losing weight is very hard then you have to work harder just to keep it off for the rest of your life. Most will fail at this. I hope she to see her for many years to come in more roles where she isn't just pulled out to be the sassy black woman or to hit the high notes only.

Well she needs to audition for some Tyler Perry productions or take her ass to Nollywood then. Hollywood is by white people, for white people.

Do they even have big girls in Tyler perry films aside from himself?

Then Janet Jackson claims she gained 60 lbs for a role. They rather hire her yoyo dieting ass than a real plus size actress. She must've thought she would win an award. Only white people get awards for dramatic weight change.
