#1 Britney Spears

In the 90’s, everyone lusted for Britney Spears — blonde hair, cherubic lips and an hour-glass figure. She then sabotaged her career with several run-ins with the law, rehabs, and unsuccessful marriages.

Since her comeback, she’s reportedly gained 30 pounds on her Las Vegas show. Nothing wrong with gaining some weight… Britney is still beautiful, but she could change her wardrobe and show less of her midriff.


#2 Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is one of the more famous stars out there to gain a lot of weight, although in her case, she pretty much managed to carry it well the entire time. Still though, even though some people don’t mind the curvier Mariah, the weight fluctuations that she went through were extreme, even for a list such as this. This has led a lot of sites, such as the National Enquirer to write things such as “Mariah Carey has shed a whopping 45 lbs. from her voluptuous body, sparking speculation she underwent liposuction to get rid of her thunder thighs and fat hips!” Okay, come on… thunder thighs? Really? That seems to be a little extreme. Mariah always looks pretty gorgeous in my humble opinion.

#3 Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson used to be known for two things, and when I say that she was known for them, I mean that she was very well-known for them. One thing that everyone knew her for was being the sister of Michael Jackson, who was one of the most talented and creepiest people in the entire world. She was also known for being an incredibly good dancer and someone who was very talented. Now, however, she isn’t known for either of those things. Her brother has passed away, and at 50 years old, Janet doesn’t look like she has the desire or the figure to do any dancing anytime soon. I guess the fact that she’s now middle-aged and worth around 15o million bucks probably has something to do with her figure. Who can blame her?


#4 Jessica Simpson

Although she looks slim now, she had gained 70 pounds during her pregnancy. This was mainly due to her obsession towards brownies. However, she said that her husband loved her equally even when she was fat and eventually, she struck to a strict weight loss plan to lose weight.


#5 Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson first rose to fame after becoming the first person to win American Idol. Today she has been criticized for her weight gain. She says she is comfortable about her body and shrugs off the nasty criticisms about her weight. “We are who we are, whatever size.” she said in The Ellen Show.
