I just watched the new Kelly Clarkson 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”.
