Daily Mirror Blind Item

Which skinny singer's eating disorder has got so bad that she's bought a butter knife which, she tells pals, she uses to make herself sick?

Taylor Swift?

She's always looked super-skinny to me...

Jeezus.

captivagrl said...

that's nasty, and sad.

Kiradris said...

Posh? If she's even considered a singer anymore. Her body is revoltingly thin.

Cheri said...

Madonna? Her arms are scary skinny. Though I think that's because she has an addiction to exercising.

Helen said...

That's so horrible. I can't even guess.

Marina Ortiz said...

Posh and Madonna (believe or not) look too healthy to be anorexic. I'm thinking Amy Winehouse...

Marina Ortiz said...

Not sure if Amy is still considered "British" anymore since she's been in this hemisphere for so long :)

BlisterPlease said...

Since it's from the Daily Mirror she's most likely British...is Lily Allen still skinny?

jax said...

not lily.

some ho from the girlie groups.

selenakyle said...

Some dumb c*nt. Really. Don't brag to pals about it, you dipshit.

So...wonder how long she thinks her pipes can handle that abuse?

Better learn to "act" before your voice is shot.

Carrie Underwood.

Reading that made me gag.

my guess is posh

Jungle007 said...

wait, wait....

She had to buy a butter knife to use as a gagger??

Well, i guess you don't need utensils when you have an eating disorder...

Hmmm.... Joss Stone? NAh, wait I love her.

I have no clue.

Ayesha said...

jungle, that's what I was thinking. Why not just swipe one from a hotel or restaurant?

But I bet it has special meaning to her because (no offense to any anos here) people with those compulsions make rituals out of their shit.


I think this is someone young, though, not Madonna or her ilk.

amy winehouse.

Gross, doesn't the stomach acid coming up ruin your throat too?...Not the smart on many levels

Jen said...

I would guess at one of Girls Aloud, its in the Mirror and some of those girls are freaky skinny.

nadel said...

If she's bulimic (and by the sounds of making herself throw up, she is), she doesn't necessarily have to be stick thin. Most bulimics look a healthy weight, it's the mentality that's messed up.

I'm leaning towards someone from a girl group in Britain...

It also ruins your teeth.

Carla said...

cheryl cole?

Barton Fink said...

Most bulimics retain more than a thousand calories from their food: "Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh measured the caloric content of vomitus from female bulimics and found that they retain about 1,200 calories after binging and vomiting--no matter how much food they consume or how often they throw up." So, I don't want to be mean, but throwing up compulsively is not only weird but ineffective.

I guess the takeaway for this would be: Stop!

Celine Dion!

I waited on her once. She would only eat lettuce leaves and onion slices!!

I was like "Please, lady. Eat a cheeseburger."

@barton:
interesting fact, but not all bulimics are bingers. i went through a brief period in my life (a long time ago in a galaxy far away) when i would vomit up anything i ate.
it also happened after the birth of both of my children, but _I_ didn't do anything to encourage it those times, it just happened.
what i'm saying is, if you take in 800 calories or less, and then vomit, you're not going to retain 1200.
and yes, the acid is supposed to kill your teeth and i guess your throat. luckily i was only with that asshole for a few years, so i suffered no permanent damage.
you really can't put eating disorders in a pretty little box. :)

I'm with Jen, I think it's one of the stick figures of Girls Aloud, with the possible exception of Nadine because she's supposed to be the best singer of the group and I imagine all that stomach acid going up to the throat would ruin any golden voices. Carla might be right on the Cheryl Cole front; since she decided to stay with that cheating dirtbag Ashley, she might be the one most likely to subject herself to something akin to self-harm.
