He’s no longer the chubby but loveable figure he once was. Sean Kingston was the highlight of the night at the Fox’s Teen Choice Awards show, making his first red-carpet appearance and appearing 45 pounds lighter. This was his first public appearance since a serious jet ski accident on May 29.
In the accident, Kingston suffered a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs. He had several surgeries performed when it was determined that blood was filling up his chest.
"I'm 100 percent right now," he told MTV last week. "What the accident basically taught me is, in life, you have to count your blessings."
Kingston also discussed his recent weight loss. "Actually, I shed like 45 pounds, and I've been working out every day," Kingston told MTV News. "But I got to keep it up and lose more weight. It's easy to gain weight when you're in the studio. That's how it first started out but I'm cutting all that out."
Kingston’s not the only major black celebrity to lose a bunch of weight in recent weeks. Actress and singer Jennifer Hudson is now down to a size zero. Perhaps being black and fit is where it’s at in 2011.
