Because she made a couple of songs that a lot of chubby 20 and 30-something year old women and lonely flyover gays bought, so she made some money, began taking herself WAY super seriously, picked up a drug and alcohol problem in the process, stripped nude..... now, absurd costumes is all she has left to make all those chubster fans goo and gaaa over her.
[quote]picked up a drug and alcohol problem in the process
A friend attended a party where she performed before she became famous. He said she was clearly fucked up then. She's had substance abuse issues for quite a while, it appears.
