Little Boots Hurt By Fat Jibes

British singer LITTLE BOOTS has embarked on a new healthy eating regime following a slew of cruel online comments about her weight - because she is "bored of people calling her fat".
The 25 year old - real name Victoria Hesketh - admits she has been viciously targeted via her Twitter.com blog, and has taken the jibes about her body size to heart.
Hesketh took to her personal blog last week (beg16Nov09) in a bid to stem the hurtful comments, writing, "OK, getting really bored of people calling me fat online now... diet started yesterday, you don't have to rub it in."
And now she has opened up about her online battle, insisting she is disappointed her fans have been poking fun at her.
She tells British radio station BBC Radio 1, "It is really difficult. I guess just doing this job you become used to it whether it's on the internet or in the papers, people saying things which simply aren't true about you.
"I think the internet is just a place where if you make yourself known publicly on it you're going to be open to people's opinions.
"You've just got to be quite hard-skinned about it and try not to worry if someone says you're fat or ugly or untalented - which they do."
