Hitting back at critics who said she was not star material because of her size, 210 pound ‘Pop Idol’ champ Michelle McManus responded in an interview with The Mirror: “I am who I am. It’s blatantly obvious that I’m not your typical Pop Idol – I’m not Atomic Kitten, Kylie or Rachel Stevens – but it can’t be a bad thing to have bigger people in pop. If I want to lose another stone (14 lbs), I’ll lose another stone. But, let’s face it, if I lose another three stone I’m not going to be Britney Spears in a hurry. I’m not going to buckle to conform to any size. We are an image conscious nation and people find it hard to believe people can be big and happy. But I’ve dealt with it and will continue to.”
