The 42-year-old artist has shed more than 20 pounds as a new ambassador for Weight Watchers’ Freestyle Program –- and, of course, he did it in the most DJ Khaled-way possible.
“Don’t act like you don’t see what’s going on!” he flaunted at a taping for The Four: Battle for Stardom, on which he serves as a judge. “I don’t lose weight, I get rid of weight. All I do is win.”
Khaled said he’s down to 272 pounds (from 293), but is quick to clarify: “I’m never down, I’m up. Bless up.”
“I'm in here, like, dancing in the kitchen. Catching a vibe!” he continued. “I noticed other programs, you can get rid of a lot of weight but it comes back right away. The last three years I've been up and -- I don't like using the other word -- I'm always up, but you know what I mean. I feel like this is so good for me because it's a lifestyle. Even when I get where I want to be, at least I'm eating healthy, I'm disciplined and it's a lifestyle I can maintain, and that's the key.”
Khaled is bringing his signature positivity to The Four alongside Sean “Puffy” Combs, Meghan Trainor, Republic Records exec Charlie Walk and host Fergie.
“I'm always real good at being wise, but at the same time, I'm me,” he said. “If I see you playing yourself, I’m-a let you know, don't play yourself. Basically, don't take my kindness for weakness. Take my kindness for greatness.”
“Me being a father now, I'm definitely more wise and more cautious -- a better presentation of laying it out,” he said. “I look at my son and, you know, the new artists, the new generation and the young world -- I'm inspired by them because those are the next superstars, doctors, presidents, CEOs, billionaires, community, everything.”
Meanwhile, Khaled said he’s ready to expand the family with fiancée Nicole Tuck.
“I was talking to my queen the other day and it might be time for another one,” he gushed, delivering his catchphrase with flair. “Whatever God has planned for us. I love kids, listen, that's God. If God wants us to have another one, I'm ready.”
