Rihanna Speaks Out Against "Size Zero Obsession" of the Fashion Industry in the Daily Mail

A Healthy Bite: Rihanna

"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. Being size zero is a career in itself so we shouldn’t try and be like them. It’s not realistic and it’s not healthy."

Rihanna talks to the the UK publication Daily Mail about the fashion industry's "size zero obsession." The singer, 22, also said that she doesn't diet unless she gets "out of control." So far, so good — the 5'8" star weighs a healthy 133 pounds.
