Melanie Amaro Weight Loss

L.A. Reid has reportedly put Melanie Amaro on a strict diet and fitness plan so she’ll drop weight. Do YOU think that’s fair to demand?

Melanie Amaro may be sitting on a $5 million recording contract after winning season one of The X Factor, but she’s certainly not sitting on her couch. The 19-year-old British Virgin Islands singer has been told to get herself in shape — and the record label exec is doing what he can to help her out.

“L.A. Reid is adamant that Melanie get thinner so he’s hired a trainer for her, has her on a strict diet and checks in personally every day to see how much weight she’s lost,” an insider told The Hollywood Reporter>. “When she comes back, it will be a whole new Melanie Amaro.”

While we support being healthy, we don’t think every celebrity needs to be pin thin to be successful. Melanie is gorgeous and voluptuous, so we hope she’s not being forced to do change against her will.

What do you think of L.A.’s request? Sound off below!
