    Default Ana Matronic

    Returning to the spotlight after a four-year absence, fans may not recognise Scissor Sisters frontwoman Ana Matronic.
    Performing at the American group's first London gig in years, the slimmed-down 35-year-old looked a shadow of her former much curvier self.
    After previously declaring she'd rather read a book than go for a run, the flamboyant pop star has finally hit the gym and lost two stone.

    Slimmer sister: Singer Ana Matronic leaves the Brixton Academy last night after performing with the Scissor Sisters

    Taking to the stage for the Scissor Sisters comeback gig at the Brixton Academy in a latex mini-dress, the singer - whose real name is Ana Lynch - looked dramatically different to the curvaceous diva who first leaped to fame in 2004.
    The Oregon-born star who grew up in California decided to overhaul her lifestyle after realising a lot of her stage outfits didn't fit.
    She told The Times: 'I lost two stone. I went to the gym. I went for the burn. And I cut out the booze.
    'After that, it came off by itself. I feel more vital and sexy than I ever have, but the really great thing is establishing that a healthy body helps you have a healthy mind. It was something I was kind of in denial about.'

    Lifestyle overhaul: Matronic was much heavier three years ago

    As well as regular workouts, Matronic still enjoys her favourite foods, but eats everything in moderation.
    She told blog ElectroQueer: 'You have to be careful not to indulge too much because you can wake up one day and suddenly your stage clothes don't fit like they used to.'
    Matronic's new attitude to exercise may come as a surprise to her fans, who hailed her as role model for women to feel more comfortable with their natural size.
    She once said: 'Why would I want to run on a treadmill for an hour, when I could sit and read a book?'

    Changing shape: Matronic used to champion the curvier woman before she 'went for the burn and cut out the booze'

    Several years ago, she also criticised size zero celebrities for making normal women feel insecure about their bodies.
    She said: 'It’s a kick in the teeth to all those women who worked so hard to improve our rights. It is just getting out of control.'
    The Scissor Sisters' current promotional duties for their new album Night Work means Matronic hasn't been able to have a honeymoon with new husband Seth Kirby.
    The singer married video artist Kirby in April after seven years together.
    Scissor Sisters are launching the iTunes Festival in Camden, north London, on Thursday night, before performing on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage on Saturday.

    I don't really know who she is,but the weight loss has really aged her face. She looked better before.

    She needs to put half of that back on. Part of her appeal was that she was an empowered big woman, not another lollipop headed pop star.

    Yep, she looked way better before. She could've toned it up and gotten her heart healthy, but that stick-thin look is just hideous on her. It's hideous on everybody, really.

    I don't think she's stick thin, I think she's one of those people whose face unfortunately gets too thin and gaunt when at a "normal" weight. It sucks, her body looks good but her face looks drawn and a bit manly too.

    She looked better before. Some people just look better with some extra weight.

    She says she feels more vital and mentally healthy. So who are we to say she should pile the weight back on? She looks very pretty in the second thin picture, just bad in the first one.
