MTV wanted to “stretch [Kelly] out”; Sharon: “[w]e’re the taste of the month.”
For her appearance at last night’s MTV Movie Awards, MTV crew members wanted to “stretch [Kelly] out,” essentially to make her appear thinner. Sharon tells Entertainment Weekly that Kelly “was really upset. She said, ‘Hey, I like myself, why do that to me?'” Also, Sharon talks about recognizing that the family is “the taste of the month, and nothing can last at this level. The bubble will burst.”
+ also: “Kelly told MTV she didn’t feel comfortable in the UK.”
