Eddie Murphy's Model Daughter Spoke a Horrifying Truth About the Fashion Industry
“I’ve heard of people eating the cotton balls with the orange juice…they dip it in the orange juice and then they eat the cotton balls to help them feel full, because the cotton’s not doing anything. It’s just dissolving. And it makes you think you’re full, but you’re not. ... Lots of girls get addicted to drugs and anorexia, it’s — there’s a whole list of things, because it’s a lot of pressure to be perfect. ... It’s your job to go into a room…and some people will just say no without an explanation, and some will be like, ‘Oh, your nose is too big. Your butt’s too big. Oh, your legs are flabby.’ Like, they’ll just go on you, ‘Oh, you need to tighten that up'."
--Bria Murphy, Eddie Murphy's model daughter, on what it's really like in the industry, and holy crap, how awful. Cotton balls soaked in orange juice? That's not even ... that's just ... how can anybody ever think that's even remotely palatable, let alone consider it an OK thing to do? God!
Things really, really need to change in the more hardcore subgenres of the fashion industry, and mad, mad props to Bria Murphy for helping to blow the lid off of these practices. All of the poor women who engage in this kind of behavior need some serious love and help before they self-destruct all for somebody else -- because you know they're not doing it for themselves.
Heartbreaking. Go and help change the world, girl!
