Amber Riley's character Mercedes Jones is sort of the Jennifer Hudson of Fox's "Glee," a sitcom about the go-go world of high school music and theatre. She's cute and spunky with a glass-shattering. She also happens to be full-figured. Amber recently spoke to Life & Style magazine about body confidence.
“You’re not your dress size, you’re not your shoe size, you’re not your pants size," she said. "If I’m going to wear a name tag, it’s going to say ‘Amber Riley,’ not ‘Fat Girl’!”
Amber also spoke to the mag about fashion, which is one of her passions. She said that she loves shoes and prefers shapely silhouettes instead of "plus-size clothes that look like a tent."To read more about Amber Riley CLICK HERE
