Nicole Richie: ‘I’m Too Thin,’” reads People’s succinct headline, summarizing the reality star’s Vanity Fair interview. The shocker here is not Richie’s physique, but rather, her courage and frankness in admitting, ”I know I’m too thin right now, so I wouldn’t want any young girl looking at me and saying, ‘That’s what I want to look like.”’ It’s really jarring and unsettling to see a celebrity voluntarily lift the veil of spin like this. What if it becomes a trend? I breathlessly await such future People headlines as: ”Tom Cruise: ‘I’m Too Hyper,”’ ”Kanye West: ‘I’m Too Self-Confident,”’ and ”Dakota Fanning: ‘I’m Too Adorable.”’
