Kim Kardashian Gets Back at Detractors With 50-Pound Weight Loss

October 31, 2013 09:18:33 GMT


It was her first big interview since becoming a mom and getting engaged to Kanye West, so host Jay Leno made sure to cover everything about his Wednesday episode guest Kim Kardashian. From her daughter North West to her wedding plans, the recently-engaged celebrity openly spoke to Leno, including of course her visible weight loss after her pregnancy that she showed off in a white lace see-through dress.

With proper exercise and the Atkins diet, Kim revealed she has since lost 50 pounds, a redemption of sorts for what she experienced during her pregnancy, when some very hurtful comments from the media about her weight gain "really did affect" her, saying, "It really hurt my soul." But she was wise enough to adjust her life so as to avoid all the negativity around her, trying to stay more at home and out of the public eye.

Electronic music producer and singer James Blake won this year's Barclaycard Mercury Prize for his sophomore album "Overgrown". The BBC Sound of 2011 runner-up, who recently turned 25, won over heavy favorites like veteran artist David Bowie and last year's winner Arctic Monkeys. He said he "deserved it as much as anyone else did," adding an acknowledgement for all the "great people involved" in his triumph, something that he had been put on a 25/1 chance to win by bookies.

"I feel jubilant and confused, wonderful. It's a moment you don't expect to happen to you," said Blake, whose live performance earlier that night had been erroneously introduced by host Lauren Laverne as James Blunt. When asked how he thought the prize would change his career, he said "people might be louder" at his gigs and he might even "stand up on stage," but it would not change him as a person that did not want "to bend to outside pressures."
