Rocsi(of 106&Park) speaks out about body image issues

Yesterday, BET's video countdown show, 106 and Park took some time to address the many issues of body image. In the midst of this, host, Rocsi came out about the many body image issues she had as a teenager and some of those that still bother her.

i just wanted to be skinny. That’s all I wanted. And it’s hard even now in this industry. God! We go through so much. All the women in this industry, this is so not us guys. When we wake up in the morning, this is not what you see. And it’s even hard with the blogs, recently I wore my hair in a ponytail and they were talking about my ears. They were like “Keebler Elf” and this that and the other. And you try not to make it hurt, but it hurts and your appearance is everything.
The only reason why I came out. Alot of minority women go through this. I used to think that it was a “white” syndrome. I thought only white people were anorexic or bulimic and I didn’t think that anyone like me or that looked like me would go through this.

I give her the greatest respect for doing this because so many young girls and females alike glorify the image and status that she has a host on 106 and Park, and for her to use that status to tell others about what she went through probably helped alot of people who watched the show. Kudos to you Rocsi! Get it? Got it? Fresh. =)
