Props To Those Female Artists That Are Real

Contributed anonymously:

I just watched the new video for ‘Breakaway” and I found it interesting that she looked beautiful, but they only shot her from the chest up. Probably because, as most of us have seen, she’s not sickly skinny, she’s pretty healthy. Most women out there aren’t sickly skinny either and I think it’s great to see a pop artist, who is topping the charts, look great without having to be anorexic and stick like and conform to what our superficial society deems “beautiful”.

I think it’s a bad influence on young girls to have to look super thin in order to be seen as beautiful. We all know that young women strive to look like their musical idols and what not, and it’s nice to see someone that girls can look at and see as beautiful but also see that she is a little overweight. Of course, the video didn’t exactly show her curves, you can see she has them.

I like reading some of the articles on this site, which is why I come here, but there is a whole lot of negativity and judgment as well. We all have our opinions, and I’m not the biggest Kelly Clarkson fan to be honest, but I think the fact and the concept that she isn’t starving herself to be successful and accepted is a positive thing. Positivity being something we can all use a bit more of.

Now there’s something to think about if you weigh 15 pounds more than is socially “thin” and therefore “beautiful”.

    That’s good that she is “healthy” and comfortable with her body, but just because some girls are thin doesn’t make them sickly. I am 5’7 and 114 pounds. I have always been thin. Am I anorexic? No. I just am very active and I have high metabolism. I eat all the time, but I cannot gain a lot of weight. I don’t think its fair to say that thin girls are sickly. We don’t call fat girls sickly—- even though they may be sick with heart problems and diabetes.

    I agree with you…nice essay. Kelly Clarkson is a beautiful’, ‘young lady, with a GREAT VOICE. I saw her live, and she’s got a very nice figure. She’s not overweight at all — not in the least. She just looks normal. She has a great smile and a wonderful presence and boy, she can sing live!! She’s just lovely and perfect and beautiful and talented and I wish her the best. Did I hear that Avril Lavigne co-wrote “Breakaway”?

    They shouldn’t even shoot her face. Ugh! Her face bugs me big time. Anyway, Hilary Duff is everything but thin, neither are Lindsay, Britney, Christina, Nicole Ritchie, Kelly Osborn, Ashley,etc… None of them are waffle thin and they are some of today’s most popular role models. You sound overweight, stop hating, start exercising and eating healthy!

    I love that Kelly is representing for the thick girls. I’m 5’0 and 130 lbs and I love to see someone who looks like me. People still see me as big because I don’t weigh 105 lbs but I did weigh over 155 lbs. But the standard of beauty is a little screwed up. I don’t like seeing skinny girls saying their fat or making fun of someone bigger than them. But if you’re skinny, be skinny and happy that you don’t have to work for it.

    She is #3 on the pop chart and by Sunday she will be #1 so how could anyone say she has not been on the top of the charts. She has an awesome voice and I love her new song. She is indeed a beautiful young lady and a wonderful role model.

    Um, well first of all, it isn’t fair to assume that skinny girls are “sickly”, just the same as it’s unfair to assume that bigger girls are unhealthy. And it’s also unfair to assume that those that are skinny are the ones that have to starve themselves to get that way. Well, guess what, some people have a fast metabolism and struggle to gain weight and such. Being “real” or “beautiful” isn’t so much about not starving yourself to be skinny, or to be a bit heavier than someone whose thinner, but it’s about just accepting who you are inside and out. That’s something that anybody should think about regardless of their weight.

  7. jazzprofounder says:

    Well the standard of beauty has always been a bit screwed up. But I think people should get away from what society considers “beautiful” and just have pride in who they are and what they are made of. After all, there is more to being beautiful than having a certain weight.

    Because someone is thin they aren’t real. Give me a freakin’ break. Are you a freakin’ Jenny Craig Crusader? Some people are naturally thin and curvy (Christina, J.Lo) and some people are fat (Kelly). Get over it!

    There are the rare instances such as yourself who try to gain but can’t, and are healthy… But for the sake of MOST of the world, it’s good that there are size 10 or 12 models and idols to look to cause the majority of the world ISN’T 5’7″ 114 lbs. The majority is between a 10 and a 12, not FAT…. I’m 5’7″ myself, and while the scale says I weigh an average of between 160 and 175 in any given year, I’m not fat. I put on quite a bit of weight last semester….could be because I drank all the time. But I worked my butt off….LITERALLY, and got back down. Yeah, I have junk in my trunk, and a roll or two down below, but I’m still a bit better than average. If I actually kept with the working out, I’d be better….. Anyhow….way off on a tangent…. Most of us aren’t rail thin and perfect, and it’s GREAT to have someone in the spotlight to look up to who isn’t meeting the standard of “beautiful” that has been set by whoever. I adore Kelly Clarkson for many reasons, this being just ONE of them.

    Well, stupid rappers and R&B people make thin girls feel like crap. Guys today like big girls. Not many like thin girls. I hate when fat girls whine about being fat- get off your butt and exercise. I can whine about being thin because no matter what I do I cannot lose weight!!!!! I will be happy when thin is back in because I will be in!
