Kelly Clarkson

25-year-old Kelly Clarkson reveals to CosmoGirl! magazine her struggle with weight after being passed up for a play in high school. Because of this, she became bulimic, but stopped after 6 months because she’s a quitter.

“I thought…If I came back and I’m cuter and thinner…then I’ll get the role.”

For six months, Clarkson was bulimic, until a friend discovered her problem. “One of my guy friends caught on to it, and I just felt so ashamed and embarrassed,” she tells the mag. “I literally went cold turkey and snapped out of it.”

As you can clearly see here, weight is no longer an issue for Kelly. Whew. Crisis averted.
