The singer is travelling the world filming the show, which examines beauty regimes in a variety of cultures, and she admits she is continually surprised by what she learns about the habits women practice across the globe.
Her manager/father Joe tells UsWeekly.com, “(She) becomes a Geisha in Japan. In Uganda, we sat in a fattening hut because, in Uganda, fat is beautiful. So the bigger you are, the more beautiful you are. She was with a girl who had been in a hut preparing for her wedding for two months and 25 days on a 5,000 calorie-a-day diet.”
And the star, who will visit Morocco next, has been comforted on her travels by women sympathising with the media criticism she endured over her rounder figure earlier this year (09).
Joe adds, “She’s always scrutinised by the world and (it’s great) to watch her go to other countries and see women talk about what is beautiful there.
“We were just in Uganda, and a beauty ambassador (there) knew Jessica’s total story, about her weight and blah, blah, blah. (She told) Jessica that it’s about who you are inside, which is the message of our show.”
