Khloe Kardashian has always seemed to have a kind of weird relationship with her body.
Stars, they’re just like us!
In the past year or two, Khloe’s lost a whole lot of weight, and thanks to many, many hours spent at the gym, she’s completely transformed her body.
Some might say the transformation came after many hours spent at the neighborhood plastic surgery office, but that’s neither here nor there.
The point is that Khloe looks quite a bit different than she used to, and those changes can be hard to get used to.
She spoke at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit earlier today — yes, really — and she was open and honest about what it was like to be “the fat Kardashian.”
“I’m all for women empowerment,” she said, “and I used to be someone they used to label plus-size.”
“F-ck that. I don’t want to be called that — I’m a woman with curves.”
It’s a strange little debate, the one about the term “plus-size,” but it’s pretty clear how Khloe feels on the subject.
Really, it’s just a term that makes it easier for people of a certain size to find the clothing that fits them, it’s not inherently offensive or anything.
Though it probably didn’t help that Khloe was called plus-sized when she definitely was not.
“I was what I would say is average size at the time,” she explained. “I was very proud of who I was, and I felt, like, so shamed at the time — to go into boutiques or go denim shopping.”
“It was something that was super hard for me.”
Poor Khloe even said that she was “embarrassed to go shopping with my sisters, who are petite.”
It’s sad, because back in the day, Khloe would make all sorts of appearances with Kim and Kourtney Kardashian — Kim is 5’3″ and Kourtney is 5’0″, so at 5’10”, of course Khloe looks much bigger.
Khloe has a much different body type than her sisters, which is fine, obviously, but that’s why people called her plus-sized, and that’s why she had a hard time finding clothes.
Tall girls have it rough.
But still, Khloe’s always identified as “a chubby girl,” and even though she’s lost weight, things haven’t changed in that department.
These days, with her new denim line, Good American, which comes in a variety of sizes up to a 24, Khloe said “I remember the chubby girl in me and I’m fighting for my chubby self.”
“It wasn’t about having a new denim line,” she went on.
No, it was about “doing something that empowers other women, and something that is really going to break down barriers.”
So that’s kind of admirable, right?
Now if only Khloe could be more like this, if she could give talks like these instead of just being the most ridiculous girl that ever was, then we’d really be cooking …
