Quotables: ... Wait, WHAT?

"When I was growing up and when I was a pre-teen, the people that I had to look up to [for] body image [were] extremely underweight… [They] were all very bony at that time and that was the in thing. I really credit women like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian… [they] completely revolutionized what our generation's view of perception of what beautiful is and I really think that they had a huge impact on that. You can think whatever you want about the Kardashians, but they really did help tons of women feel comfortable in their own skin and I like to carry that message on. Look at J.Lo, look at Scarlett Johansson, Sophia Vergara, Beyonce – who I don't really consider human, she is more like a goddess – they have amazing figures it's more realistic and achievable."

--Demi Lovato explains why we as a society should appreciate Kim Kardashian, and isn't that just something else?

Really though, Demi is right, as usual. Yeah, it's kind of weird to think that Kim Kardashian revolutionized anything at all, but she did, didn't she? Before everyone knew every single thing there was to know about her and her family, the most widely accepted "attractive" body type -- I know, it's kind of gross to think that any body type is more attractive than another, but this is the world we live in -- was much thinner. These days, you still have the idiots that call Kim "fat," but things aren't what they used to be, friends. So Demi's right.. Go ahead and thank a Kardashian.

Oh come on. Kim's ass is fake her face is fake. Kim's body looks deformed. Beyoncé dances like a stripper and her skin colour constantly changes. Next she will tell us Courtney Stoddern is intelligent.

this is nice but their body types have never been undesirable in the real world. all of the celebrities she mentioned have flat stomachs and well proportioned bodies so they're still relatively high expectations either way. it is good that more body types are being accepted through mainstream media though.

totally true. there was like the whole "ally mcbeal" (actress) episode where her extreme anorexia was the main topic in the media like in the early 2000's. all the other outrageously thin people were the norm and not even questioned. people with figures like kim kardashian or beyonce, anything that went beyond the 'ten pound camera norm' was not going to happen. seems like the first thing you would hear when trying to get into hollywood was: lose weight, no matter how thin you already were, it was not thin enough. skeleton was the guide. she is also right about the 'acceptable behavior' the kardashians have very hilariously sort of, broken the door open for. while everyone in hollywood is even still today putting on this total aura of aloofness, they just barged in the door snorting and burping so to say, letting us know how much falseness is really behind the cameras.
