Singer-songwriter Lily Allen has got the blues about her weight and is contemplating gastric bypas surgery and liposuction to reduce her weight. Appearing to be suffering from mental exhaustion during her American tour, the normally strong-willed 22-year old singer wrote candidly in her popular Myspace blog that her being overweight has gotten her down to the point that she started looking into weight loss surgeries such as gastric bypass surgery and liposuction.
Lily Allen fears that she has fallen victim to the pressures that come with fame and the need to have a certain look.
“Im afraid I am not strong and have fallen victim to the evil machine . I write to you in a sea of tears from my hotel bed in
This disturbing statement contrasts sharply with her previous statements on her body image, which displayed her being quite comfortable in her skin. Lily Allen previously said, “I’m irritated by the emphasis on being thin. I wouldn’t swap bodies with anyone.”
Lily certainly does not need any gastric bypass surgery or liposuction, as deciding to have plastic surgery should not be done during a period of emotional turmoil. Moreover, Lily hardly fits the profile of an optimal candidate for either gastric bypass surgery or liposuction. Gastric bypass surgery is reserved for morbidly obese individuals, which Lily is far from being. Moreover, liposuction is not meant to be used for weight loss, but rather to eliminate fat in trouble areas that do not respond to natural dieting or exercise. liposuction is not a weight loss. Considering her young age, Lily can lose the weight naturally.
Lily Allen’s fans have flooded her blog in support of her and for the large part have all tried to talk her out of her idea. Allen has not yet posted a new response since her breakdown and time will show what course of action she will take.
We are optimistic that Lily will come to her senses and take the higher road, for she has been a positive role model for young women in being proud and confident of her body and not falling prey to unhealthy images of beauty.
