Blogger Jes Baker is blasting popular clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch for trying to define beauty with a number. Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries has recently come under major fire for comments he made to Salon.com back in 2006. He talked about the store's refusal to sell anything bigger than a size large and only wanting the "All-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends" to represent the brand.
"Omg! Insider" sat down with Baker, who is fighting back with Abercrombie ads of her own, where she poses topless with a male model and reinterprets the A&F letters to stand for a message she truly believes in, "Attractive & Fat."
"I don't really care what Abercrombie really truly thinks about this, to be honest with you. I don't have the energy to dislike Mike Jeffries," she said during the interview. "There's so much negativity in the world, it doesn't need to be perpetuated."
Baker also included an open letter to Jeffries on her website, the Militant Baker, criticizing the company for its narrow view of what beauty really is and promoting the idea that every size is beautiful.
"The only thing you've done through your comments (about thin being beautiful and offering XL and XXL in your stores for men) is reinforce the unoriginal concept that fat women are social failures, value-less, and undesirable," Baker wrote. "Well, actually, that's not all you have done. You have also created an incredible opportunity for social change."

Celebrities can tweet condolences all they want, but Blake Shelton is putting his money (and his guitar) where his mouth is when it comes to those affected by the Oklahoma tornado.
"The Voice" judge opened Tuesday night's show by performing an acoustic version of "Over You" alongside wife Miranda Lambert while donation information for The Red Cross was presented on screen. The couple originally co-wrote the song in honor of Blake’s older brother, who passed away when he was a teenager.
"I think 'Over You' was the perfect song for this situation," Shelton said later on. "The moment was right. I wish things could have been different. I wouldn't have thought about performing a song like that, but it seemed like the right thing to do."
Following Shelton's touching tribute, the Oklahoma native revealed he and NBC have started to organize a benefit concert for the victims of the tornado that killed at least 24 people, nine being children.
"We'll know more about it in the next 24 hours," Shelton told Billboard. "I'm hoping it will raise a lot of money. Obviously, it will be televised and will happen really quickly."
Shelton grew up about 75 miles south of where the tornado struck in Moore, Oklahoma, on May 20, and the couple currently lives about 100 miles away from Moore.
It's very likely that Shelton will recruit a slew of high-powered performers for his benefit concert. "I can call in some pretty big favors," Shelton said. "The Voice" judges, both ex and current,Read More »from Blake Shelton Plans Oklahoma Benefit Concert: How Other Celebs Are Helping Out
Justin Bieber gives a speech at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards (Getty Images)
I watched Justin Bieber's speech at the Billboard Music Awards, the one he made after he was booed. Is he deliberately trying to tick off fans or what?
— L. Labile
Oh, don't stop with Bieber's entitled whining at the Billboards. There's that small matter of the baby capuchin monkey the singer accepted as a gift ... only Bieber kind of forgot that the animal needed, you know, vaccinations and import papers. Mally the monkey subsequently got confiscated during the German leg of Bieber's concert tour, leaving the Teutons to rack up the expenses for Mally's care.
Bieber also has indulged in righteous Twitter rants about his music sales posted myriad photos of himself shirtless; complained about having the "worst birthday ever" because a club wouldn't accommodate his underage friends; added Holocaust victim Anne Frank to his horde of groupies; allegedly spat in somebody's water bottle; and shared a recent snapshot of himself palling around with noted Chris Brown.
So, yeah: Either Bieber really wants to alienate fans, or he just doesn't know what he's doing.
Bieber. Shirtless. Again. (Instagram)For the record, crisis PR experts say it's probably the latter.

Reality rocker Bret Michaels is looking back and remembering that grand time when he and Charlie Sheen were partying in the '90s and destroying hotel rooms. Ah, those were the days, right?
"One thing I did help Charlie with … he was trying to destroy a hotel room in Orlando," Michaels told Huff Post Live. "He was having a little trouble with one of the big vases … I lifted this Ming vase, or whatever the hell it was. It was huge. He was struggling a little bit with it. So we smashed it … You can't throw it on the carpet, that's pointless. We went over to a much harder surface, a nice Travertine Tile and smashed it down. It shattered. It was great. We split the bill on that, by the way. We were even Steven."
But that wasn't the only thing the duo smashed. The "Poison" singer also revealed he broke his guitar, and explained why it's such a relief to go around trashing things.
"It just feels good sometimes to destroy something provided you pay for it," he confessed. "I know it's my guitar, I know it's my own thing."
Check out the video to find out what else the rock star had to say about their destructive escapades.Read More »from That One Time Bret Michaels and Charlie Sheen Destroyed a Hotel Room
