Saturday Vids: Andre’a – The 16 Year Old Body Image Role Model
This video needs little introduction – it speaks for itself – but I will say I originally saw this video on the website We Are The Real Deal and immediately wanted (want) to be Andre’a's best friend, because she is awesome, and we can all learn a thing or two from her confidence and positive message.
Caitlin Crosby is an artist who gives me hope for the pop music genre.
Rarely in pop music do you hear a young woman singing about body acceptance, but that’s exactly what Caitlin Crosby sings about. Her songs Imperfect is the New Perfect, and Flawz preach acceptance, and loving yourself for you.
with lyrics like
“I don’t wanna look like you because
You’re too perfect, too perfect
And I don’t want to fill your shoes because
It’s not worth it, it’s not worth it
I don’t fit the mold
I am real
Too colorful to conceal
Imperfect is the new perfect”
“Just dry your eyes, you’re beautiful
I understand, it’s logical
‘Cause these images are everywhere
They’ll make believe, so don’t compare
I will not compare
We’re every shape …
