On the drive up to NoVa this past Sunday, I hooked up my iPhone / Pandora app to the aux output of my fancy pants rental car and set it to “Today’s Hits” station to ensure a steady stream of upbeat poppy driving music.
This song ^ by Selena Gomez came on. Most of the time, if I have never heard a song but like the way it sounds, I will try and listen to the lyrics the best I can. Also most of the time, I don’t understand all the words….but in this case, it was the polar opposite! I zeroed in on each stanza and couldn’t help but tear up!
As you may or may not know, Selena Gomez has had her fair share of drama lately and I don’t know if she realizes it (yet! she is so young) but this song is very powerful. I’d venture to say that most women (and even men) have had some sort of body image issue in their life, and this helps remind everyone that it’s okay to be you. In fact, it’s better than okay!
You are a beautiful person…yes YOU!
