Singer Jewel was driven to the brink of an eating disorder when she was once labeled "the chubby Renee Zellweger."

The Who Will Save Your Soul star was horrified when she heard about the nasty nickname during her first few years in the spotlight, and admits the painful jibe left her on the verge of bulimia.

Spotlight On Hillbilly Celebrities

October 13th, 2009 9:48am EDT
Hillbilly celebs
A hillbilly celeb is like a young NBA player who came from nothing. Before they were popular they would eat at McDonald's, belch and swear in public, and do whatever they wanted. But now they live in a much different culture.

There are plenty of celebrities that came from nothing and turned into something. But what makes a hillbilly celeb different is the typically uneducated unsophisticated behavior that everyone enjoys watching.

Britney Spears and sister Jamie Lynn are perfect examples of hillbilly celebs. They are from the small town of Kentwood, Louisiana, and before they were mu...
