Why the uproar? Because when the original sunken-eyed face of heroin chic speaks out about weight -- or wears fur, or loses contracts after allegations of drug use -- there's no proper response except an uproar.
See, the "nothing tastes as good" motto started among people trying to lose weight for healthful reasons. That's a good thing.
But now it's also commonly used in online communities that support anorexia and bulimia for starving's and barfing's sake. Do a search for "thinspiration" if you think Lifetime movies don't come true. But beware -- the results can be gross.
Katie Green, the model who was "too fat" for Wonderbra and is now campaigning to stop the use of ultra-thin models, told the Sun newspaper Moss' comments are "shocking and irresponsible."
On the other side, the agency that reps Moss said in a statement that the phrase was part of a longer answer and had been taken out of context: "For the record, Kate does not support this as a lifestyle choice."
Thank goodness we don't take many tips from supermodels.
