Sophie Tweed-Simmons, daughter of KISS rocker Gene Simmons, says that the media's obsession with body image is harmful to young women. She's taking a stand against the "thigh-gap" and the ideal woman:
"I, like every girl my age or any age for that matter, spend a ridiculous amount of time on social media admiring the images of 'perfect women.' They are effortlessly chic and thin and impossibly fashionable," she told World Lifestyle.
"Like every girl my age, I diet to try to emulate these social media sirens. I juice, I cleanse, I starve and I workout like a mo-fo. And here is what I've come up with. I will never have a thigh-gap or nymph like candid shots. I will never weigh 120 lbs while being in good health. And honestly, other than being truly healthy, I don't care to try anymore."
