Have you heard Alessia Cara’s new radio single “Scars To Your Beautiful”?
You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
And you don’t have to change a thing
The world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
She told Cosmo, “It was important to put that in my own words and remind people that they are beautiful no matter what.” That is sweet and I’m sure her heart is in the right place, but…CRINGE. Another “Everyone is beautiful!!!!!1” anthem meant to be empowering but totally missing the point.
I am ALL for self-acceptance. 1,000% percent. But saying everyone is beautiful is just bullshit.
