Beyoncé’s Tasty Weight Gain

Betsy Waldman / October 22, 2008

Beyoncé has been working the Etta James wig for all it’s worth during the time leading up to the release of her new album I Am… and film Cadillac Records.

And as for portraying James in the movie, Beyoncé points out to In Style, “I gained almost 15 pounds to play the role. It was way easier—and tastier—than having to lose so much weight for Dreamgirls.”

That does sound tasty, B. Did you happen to consult any of your Hollywood peers for advice on how to properly pack on the pounds?

Surely some of them would have great tips to offer.

Of course, when you do an about-face and go to shed the extra padding, you might wanna steer clear of certain diets.
