For some odd and unknown reason, in America pretty people only come in a size three, fair skinned and long hair. At least that’s what all of the commercials say. Well, unlike the size three models who are often coveted, Ms. Gabby Sidibe has a lot more to offer when it comes to her being beautiful.
34-year-old Oscar nominated Gabbie Sidibe is not looking for your approval. Sidibe opened up to ABC News’ Robin Roberts on this past Wednesday about why she’d rather not here any praises regarding her weight loss.
Labeling the compliments as “the weirdest thing in the world,” Sadibe pays the comments no mind instead she keeps it totally cool.
“You don’t need to congratulate me on it,” she told Roberts in an episode of the Good Morning America host’s podcast “Everybody’s Got Something.”
In a world where people are praised for being smaller, Sidibe feels like people should be treated equally whether a size 2 or a size 20.
“You don’t need to congratulate me on [my weight loss]. You don’t congratulate me every time I blow my nose, I needed to … It’s in my body.”
Its no biggie to the fab actress. Keeping it positive, she disregards any negative comments about her size and make each comment positive.
For example, recalling an incident where she had been on the cover of Vogue magazine, she shares that she overheard someone questioning her appearance on the cover. “Why was her “fat black a##”on the cover?” she recalled. And even though the individual was insulting her, “they were talking about my Vogue cover..” the actress said.
She addresses issues in America where women are somewhat slaves to what and how people look at their bodies.
“We tell women what they need to look like, and what they don’t need to look like,” she explained.
And although Sidibe recognizes “that people are coming from a good place,” she considers the admiration to be “misogynistic.”
Sidibe has recently been added to the Empire family. Speaking on how people treat bigger individuals, she shares that sometimes they aren’t even treated as humans all because of their size.
“There’s all these think pieces on me. I did a sex scene on Empire which is part of my job. What it spawned is actually kind of insane. There were think pieces, there were memes, there was a hashtag because I guess they don’t think that fat people love or get love or deserve love,” said Sidibe.
Well, if we let Gabby tell it, you don’t need to mind your own business…
instead .. MIND YOUR OWN BODY. Slay Huntyyyyyyy!
