[+ 227, – 80] You may think it looks thick but if you see her off screen they’re pretty much chopsticks..


[+ 136, – 71] I think she looks better with a little bigger thighs than stick thin thighs. I don’t want her to lose weight. Not everyone has to be skinny. She looked sexy to me even on that stage.

[+ 83, – 6] She’s not as fat as you guys think.
