Raven-Symone: Weight Loss Changes Attitude

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on January 7, 2011 0 Comments

Raven-Symone, 25, has a new attitude about weight, and itÂ’s not all good. The former Disney darlingÂ’s amazing weight loss stunned the crowd at the PeopleÂ’s Choice Awards this week, but she worries that fans – and everyone else – now look at her for the wrong reasons. She told People.com, “Actually now I wear bigger clothes because I donÂ’t like the way people stare at me,” she says. “I liked it before. Now, youÂ’re just looking at me for the wrong reaFile:Raven-Symoné cropped.jpgsons.” Wrong reasons? YouÂ’re a celeb!

But if that’s true, Raven-Symone gave them plenty to look at — and drool over — on the red carpet. Stylebistro describes her ruffled black outfit, including Christian Louboutin thigh-high boots as “smoking hot!” Bigger clothes? Talk about flaunting the weight loss! Black leather pants make a statement, Raven, so if you aren’t comfortable with what you’re selling, go back to the matronly dresses and ugly shoes you used to wear. Besides the 30-40 pounds, she has lost 10-15 years in looks!

Still, Raven-Symone seems to have an unhealthy preoccupation with what people might be thinking. As the People interview goes on, “I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did,” she says, “So whatever.”  Whatever doesn’t keep a career going, but that new figure just might. So far, Raven is keeping quiet about how she lost the weight, but it was effective.
