Former Sugarbabes singer Mutya Buena, 22, credited the birth of her daughter, Tahlia-Maya, with giving her the self-confidence she lacked most of her life.
Mutya, who now enjoys a successful solo career, confessed she led a reclusive lifestyle after hearing criticism about her weight. Mutya challenged the critics after the birth of her daughter in 2005.
I wanted to stay outside the public eye because I was really hurt by what people said about me – that I was too fat or ugly.
Constant talk about my weight hasn’t made me paranoid. I have no issues about it. I don’t care if I’m not skinny – I like a bit of meat on my bones. My weight will never take over my talent.
