Rihanna Slams Pressure To Be Thin, Calls Models Unhealthy ?

Rihanna is officially up in arms over the expectation that she and others in the industry maintain a thin frame. In fact, the CoverGirl says trying to be a size zero is not “realistic” or healthy”. “Being a size zero is a career in itself so we shouldn’t try and be like them,” Rihanna said when discussing fashion and models recently. “It is not realistic and it is not healthy.” While Rihanna loves fashion and hopes to launch her line in the future, she goes on to say “You shouldn’t be pressured into trying to be thin by the fashion industry, because they only want models that are like human mannequins. They know that if we see an outfit on a mannequin in a shop window we will love it and want to buy it whatever size we are. That’s why they have size zero models – they want to sell clothes. But you have to remember that it’s not practical or possible for an everyday woman to look like that.” In related news, Rihanna continues to rock the stage on her recently kicked off ‘Last Girl On Earth’ tour.
