Jessica Simpson quickly forgot about her weight worries when she visited Africa recently, and was shunned by the locals who told her she's too skinny.
The singer has been travelling around the world learning about beauty regimes and glamour culture in different countries for new U.S. TV show The Price of Beauty.
Simpson admits she used to worry she was overweight, until she found out bigger is better in some countries.
A trip to Uganda with friend CaCee Cobb was particularly eye-opening for the star.
She tells Us Weekly, "The men told CaCee and I that we would have to (gain weight) for them to consider marrying us!"
