One of fashion's most out-spoken parodies, The Fat Jewish (real name: Josh Ostrovsky), just got one step closer to legitimacy in the industry. One Management, the agency behind supermodels like Karolina Kurkova and Bar Rafaeli as well as musicians including Nicki Minaj and A$AP Rocky, is now representing the Instagram star, according to Pret-A-Reporter.
In an interview accompanying the announcement, Ostrovsky told Pret-A-Reporter he couldn't be more excited about the development. "I knew that having a mediocre body would one day become the new having a great body, and that time has finally arrived," Ostrovsky says. "Those lines you get when you're super fit that point toward your genitals are way out, having a body like Shrek is way in."
He also outlined plans to release a book and possibly get into acting. As he puts it, "I hope to get uncomfortably famous, develop a raging drug problem, then spiral out of control and surround myself with people who only want to use me while simultaneously alienating people who actually love and care about me!"
