Celebrating Pop Star's Real Bodies
9. Cheryl Cole
Cheryl's weight has been subject of intense press coverage throughout the star's career. Currently a slim size 8 after being told to gain weight when she contracted malaria, Cheryl admitted recently she keeps different sizes of jeans because, like other women, her weight often fluctuates. "I have a pair of jeans one size bigger than the other just in case that week I'm a little bit heavier," she said. "I work out and try to make healthy choices." Does Cheryl diet? "I try to avoid them like the plague," she told Marie Claire. "That can get you into a vicious circle."
