Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, Katharine knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a professional
singer. Katharine belted out her very first tune at the age of 2, much to the surprise of her vocal coach mother. With her
mother's help, Katharine has honed her voice into the powerful force that it is today.
After high school, Katharine decided that it was time to focus on her singing and enrolled her at the prestigious Boston
Conservatory of Music. Though she only attended one semester, Katharine emerged from the institute with a greater
understanding of how to get the most from her powerful chops. Shortly after, Katharine decided to make a trip to San
Francisco to audition for American Idol, where she blew the judges away with her stunning rendition of Billie Holiday's,
"God Bless the Child."
Katharine has done phenomenally well on the show, impressing the viewers and the judges with her silky smooth singing
voice and sexy, yet utterly confident, demeanor. Katharine has expressed her ambition to tackle acting at some point in
the future and it is clear that McPhever will spread throughout the entertainment industry.
What IS it with all these American Idol stars losing weight? I don't know if it is the diets they are talking about doing or they are doing something
In any case, Katharine McPhee has lost several pounds almost overnight. Her arms are now very thin and her legs look super skinny as well.
I have to admit that until now, Katharine McPhee wasn't really on my radar. Obviously, I've seen
her from time to time on TV and whatnot, but since I don't get a chance anymore to watch
American Idol, I didn't really pay much attention to her.... but now is different. Everyone knows I
do have radar on Tyra Banks and when Tyra squeezed McPhee's well I just had to stop and
say what the?
Especially after reading what Tyra had to say about the whole thing:
"I squeezed her boobs and they are real! They're jiggly and soft."
I have to say, if this is the new direction Tyra's show is taking, I might have to reconsider that
whole "Tyra Banks is damn annoying" thing.
Unlike Tyra Banks' new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover, this is the type of ratings stunt
I whole-heartedly endorse. It is always such a shocker to the guys....

Katharine eats a balanced diet. Katherine feeds her body with good food and lets herself splurge here and there. She is an anti-dieter. She met a dietitian before American Idol
and she just taught her to eat normally and have peace with food. She follows the intuitive eating program.
She likes to Dance for exercise. Rest is unknown still
“When I made it onto American Idol, I knew that food – my eating disorder – was the one thing really holding me back, I was binging my whole life away for days at a time. So
when I got on the show, I said, ‘You know what? I can do well in this competition. Let me give myself a chance and just get a hold of this thing. “
“I knew I had put off going to a treatment center long enough – I’d been struggling with bulimia since I was 17,” she says. “Growing up in Los Angeles and spending all those
years in dance class, I’d been conscious of body image at a young age, and I went through phases of exercising compulsively and starving myself. … Food was my crutch; it was
how I dealt with emotions and uncomfortable situations.”
“I learned that there’s no such thing as a bad food,” she says. “If you look at a doughnut, people think it’s a fattening food – why? Because if you eat it you’ll get fat? No, you’ll
get fat if you eat 10 doughnuts.”
