There are some celebrities out there, however, who have refused to conform to the industry’s standards. Even though they were told to fix some of their alleged flaws, they ignored the advice and still found a way to succeed. These celebrities are proof that getting a nose job isn’t necessarily the solution. Here are 5 celebrities who were told they weren’t attractive enough to make it, but made it anyway!
According to her mother, Kesha’s manager David Sonenberg was really hard on the pop star about her weight. He reportedly told her, “You need to lose weight! I don’t care what you do, take drugs, not eat, stick your finger down your throat.” Kesha’s mother said that her producer was more polite about the issue, but he also told her that she needed to lose weight. “He’d say it in certain ways, like ‘Why don’t you try running?’ She was doing everything and not getting thin fast enough, and that’s when she first became bulimic,” her mother said. While Kesha has had to deal with her eating disorder by attending rehab, she has also had a stellar career so far to be very proud of.
