Even with all the weight-loss ads floating all over the internet, there comes a time when people, especially celebrities, find themselves adding weight. Be it due to pregnancies, depression or quarantine, netizens never fail to notice whenever an A-lister adds weight. Celebs are treated like demi-gods and a little change in appearance can force even the loyal fans to defect. So, when the paparazzi leak images of ‘fat’ celebrities, body shamers and keyboard warriors enjoy a field day hauling insults left, right, and center.
In the ’90s, Britney Spears made headlines by gracing events and concerts clad in revealing clothes highlighting her sexy hourglass figure. With all the fame and money, a couple of bad choices, failed marriages, substance abuse and run-ins with the law, Britney landed in rehab with drug and mental health issues. After spending some time in rehab, Britney made a comeback and was touring the world like nobody’s business. Although fans commended her on her recovery process, the fashion police were not so lenient, often criticizing her fashion sense claiming that her added weight calls for a wardrobe makeover since the hourglass figure is no longer there.
