All hail our dynamite Cosmo Body cover girl Khloé Kardashian! She might have one of the world’s most talked about bodies but in the new issue (out now! Get yours here) she tells us how there’s only one opinion that matters to her… and that’s her own.
“Now on my Instagram page people comment saying ‘I liked you better when you were bigger’ and I think, ‘Thank God I don’t live my life for other people because I’d be in a constant tug of war,” she told us. Instead she’s got gradually healthier and fitter over recent years on her own terms, for her own reasons.
“When me and Lamar were having issues, I decided to channel my energy into working out…if I went out with my girlfriends I would be hounded by paparazzi and made to feel more humiliated. The gym was my only refuge. I could put music on and dance around with my girlfriends and be silly.”
“I have never felt ‘fat’ I just didn’t realise how unhealthy I was until I look back at pictures. In the moment I felt so beautiful and I remember walking down red carpets with my make-up done in a little sparkly dress and I thought I was so cute. I had all this confidence.”
She also revealed that plastic surgery just isn’t for her: “I’m not against plastic surgery – if you want to do a tweak, I’m all for it, but you have to love yourself first because no surgery is going to change your heart. It would have been such an easy solution to get liposuction or whatever, but you have to be healthy to maintain that. I’ve always felt like ‘Wouldn’t it be great to accomplish that on your own?'” Damn straight Koko!
