Ailee reveals the shocking comment a senior singer made on her weight

AKP STAFF

On the May 14 airing of MBC Every1's 'Video Star,' Ailee talked about her weight. 

The singer shared she couldn't help but gain weight due to irregular eating schedule during busy times. One day, a senior singer commented on Ailee's weight gain, saying, "What are you thinking? Are you planning to retire (from the industry) soon?" 

Ailee shared she was deeply shocked by the comment. She stated, "I thought all I had to do was be good on stage. I felt ashamed, thinking, 'Do I have to take care of my body more than my singing even though I'm a singer?'"


Recalling the severe dieting days, Ailee said, "I suffered from depression when I dropped down to 49kg (108 lbs). It was so hard. My goal is to sing well but I faced issues with my voice because of my weight management. I was diagnosed with vocal nodules for the first time and it was hard to recover. I wasn't a model but I had to control myself like one. It was so hard."


Ailee shared she's still on a diet, but she is doing it the healthy way now by eating 3-4 meals a day.

its actually disgusting how other people would body shame someone i mean ailee is CLEARLY a singer not a model and a singer should be great at singing thats what define their worth, we see a lot of "beautiful" idols everywhere but they rarely have what it takes to be a real idol/singer

Whoever that senior was fuck you. Ailee look fabulous thick instead of like all these other waif thin singers with eating disorders who need help. Too bad she didn't expose who they were so they could get dragged.
