There needs to be more body positive songs in pop culture and I think this is a great contribution. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT THING.
this is rly cute
Ok friends, this works for me on a deep level and I WANT SO BADLY TO DRESS LIKE THIS WOMAN.
Okay so at first I thought this song was a poor example of body-positivity because of the “skinny bitches” line but after I listened to the lyrics a second time it was pretty clear to me that she wasn’t trying to body-shame anyone but rather point out that a lot of girls who are already thin are still being pressured to lose weight! The only problem I do have with the song is the line about what boys like (because I don’t think determining your/someone else’s worth based on the preferences of others is really being body-positive) but I think this is a good step in the right direction! Also she’s hecka cute.
^Agreed. Loving yourself the most important thing but as a young girl, it was more important for me to hear that I was going to be attractive to other people than that I should learn to love myself. I wish someone would have told me that boys would genuinely like me fat. I spent a few years trying to develop sexual prowess, because I thought I had to be overly sexual in order to make up for the fact that I was fat and ugly. I mean, I get it, I don’t know that I would call this body positive music, but I do think it’s a step in the right direction as far as music that inspires self acceptance.
(Also, I wish she’d been more clear about the skinny thing. I don’t think she was trying to shame anyone looking at the lyrics, but it’s easy to misconstrue that because the wording is a bit confusing.)
