I never thought I’d be on the cover of Cosmo Girl ever! I buy that magazine every month!”
Mandy Moore responded to a post on her official site’s forum questioning whether her hanging out with Kelly Osbourne had contributed to her appearing to gain weight in a recent photo. In response to wondering if Kelly was being a “bad influence” on Mandy, she responded, “Hehe.. It’s just a BAD picture. No one looks great from that angle. I know you weren’t being harsh… but yowzah!! Being friends with someone who is quite comfy in their own skin is taken as being a bad influence on me?? I don’t see your point babe lol. Kelly rocks… Enough said.”

Mandy Moore Likes The Trend Away From Being Sex-Pots
June 19, 2002 – The Sun-Herald chatted with Mandy during her stopover in Australia recently. Mandy talked about how she’s not alone in the recent trend of female pop stars trying to break free of the industry’s sex-pot image. “It’s prevalent but … gosh, I guess it’s just because it’s the obvious choice, it’s the easy road to travel, that’s why so many people decide to take that road. But I think in a way there have been some artists recently who have tried to change that, it’s not necessarily about the sex selling any more, it’s become a lot more about the music, about them just trying to be themselves.” As for Britney Spears, who started the trend, Mandy explains, “I think that works for her. She’s been very successful so far doing it, but it definitely couldn’t have worked for me. I guess I don’t have the confidence, the inner-confidence in myself, to pull that off.” Read more.
