has the media world gone mad?

i keep seeing this front picture of 'LOVE' everywhere, the front cover of the new glossy promoting an obese female singer on the front, 
now I'm not having a go at beth dito, she's whatever size she wants to be some people like it some on't and thats cool, but if they are somehow trying to promote anti size zero with this what are they thinking?
replacing one extremely unhealthy weight problem with another?
I"m a phtotographer, thin looks good on camer for fashion because it's about the clothes and about them hanging right, thats just how fashion has always been, it was never suggested that anyone could be a fashion model, it's a model's responsibility to safely look after her figure by eating sensibly and exercising, the old supermodels had fantastic genetics and restraint and kept perfect bodies that didn't look emaciated or unhealthy, i.e gisele and naomi, i too am totally against this skeletal look and i don't really have models in my book with this look, i like to think i shoot healthy girls, 
so im all for promoting the anti skeletal look, but replacing it with saying obesity is ok? are we mad, it's probably even more harmful than being too thin, why is it so frowned on to kill yourself being too thin, but cool and not to be talked about if you are killing yourself being overweight, 
im not having a go at these people at all just the people glamourising it in the same way size 0 was glamourised only a year ago, 
please just healthy slim people surely should be in magazines, if you want a feature on beth dito thats cool and maybe im ranting for no reason and thats all it's meant to be but if it's some kind of size 0 retaliation then i really think it is just plain rediculous to replace it with something possibly more unhealthy.!!
rant over.
