When you work in show business, having thick skin is absolutely a must. Singer Meng Jia was the recipient of some not so nice comments about her appearance in music variety show The Treasured Voice Season 3 天赐的声音3. While a lot of Netizens blamed her styling team for putting her in something they claim made her look “fat”, the former Miss A member took one for the team to apologise for failing to satisfy everyone with her appearance on stage.
For her collab with Tan Jianci, Jia took some cues from the biker slash leather trend and wore a leather romper topped with a rhinestone encrusted padded jacket. While her overall stage look is definitely attention grabbing, some Netizens were less than impressed saying the design didn’t suit her and made her look “fat”.
When folks started to criticise her team for allowing her to look “unprofessional” on stage, the star apologised and said the problem is on her. “Everyone’s dissatisfactions regarding my recent styling on The Treasured Voice is on me. I will work hard to lose weight and polish my styling. Your recommendations are the driving force behind my progress!” she wrote. Similarly, her studio also issued an apology, “Deeply sorry that this look didn’t satisfy everyone! The team is sincerely reflecting. Going forward, we will also carefully peruse and absorb everyone’s suggestions, and strive to improve and become better!“
Supportive fans on the other hand told her not to lose any more weight since she’s already thin enough. “You are fat? Who said that! What kind of distorted aesthetic is that!” Other commenters said they always thought the issue was with her clothes not with herself per se. “As long as she’s happy ..” another one commented.
they call this look ‘Fat’? ….. ohkay…
…. If this is fat, what is normal???
I think she looks great.
If she is fat, I am grossly obese! She looks amazing!
Isn’t the latest celebrity trend io wear beggy jeans, top, jacket, boyish look…? Honesty you can never go wrong w/ wearing all back and she looked fine. Let see who those complainers are and compare their style together. You dear to criticize, then show us how it’s done.
East Asia’s obsession with thinness is so unhealthy.
Fat??? Excuse me??????? Where??????? If that’s fat then I’m Jabba the hut. -_-
How I wish I was as “fat” as that !!
HL- Hoh Liu
No wonder more and more women are starving themselves to look thin…. it is one thing to stay healthy and fit, it is another to deny your body of the nutrients it needs to keep you healthy and happy!
So looking “fat” (which she obviously does not) on stage is unprofessional now??? More and more ridiculousness is pouring out of China nowadays. It’s disappointing that it’s the piblic that seems to think that female celebrities have to look like skeletons to be accepted. While I admire Jia for taking the blame, her response is also problematic. Her saying that she’ll work hard to lose weight just to pander to these haters when she’s already skinny is setting a bad example and giving those haters the idea that thye’re right.
pero ella se ve muy bien
I’m joining the comments, so looking like a ghost is what we strive towards now in East Asia ?!?!? She is everything but fat!
Whoever made that comment about her being fat is either anorexic or obese and bitter about it.
C-entertainment could use a little fat. The anorexic teenager look is a bummer.
