Leave it to Cardi B to announce baby Kulture Kiari Cephus’s birth with another pregnancy glam-shot. Following her hip-hop cover of Rolling Stone, the singer is now seen enshrined in a luscious floral garden. While channeling Beyoncé’s famous “goddess” images, Cardi B takes it one step further with swagger (check out the peacock tattoo) and mega-glitz (check out the $500,000 rock and arms full of gold bangles).
Unintended weight-loss or gain is hard enough for an Undercover Agent in private; however, when you are a celebrity the public attention can be simply demoralizing. Leave it to writer/actress, Lena Dunham, to turn an embarrassing paparazzi shot from Monday (photo, right) into a lesson in body positivity for all of us on Tuesday (above), calling herself “happy joyous & free,” at 162 pounds.
While Dunham admits that she “sometimes looks at the left picture longingly,” she remembers her pain and unhappiness while at her lowest weight, in 2017. “On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work. Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only on small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy.” Now Dunham claims to subsist on a “steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits.”
The brilliant writer adds, “As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades. I lean in.” Immediately celebrity fans and friends leaned in. Katy Perry commented that Dunham’s words were, “powerful,” while Jennifer Garner praised, “I love everything about this and you. X”
