There's More To Life Than Being Really, Really, Ridiculously Good-Looking
We all have those days where we feel kinda rough-gross-want-to-curl-up-and-hide-ugly. But you know the best thing to do? Stop looking at model selfies on Instagram, avoid scrolling through websites full of photos of celebrities in bikinis, stop hating yourself for not going to the gym today, and just listen to this Upworthy original playlist.
Honestly, if TLC’s “Unpretty,” India.Arie’s “Video,” Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful,” and Destiny’s Child’s “Bootylicious” can’t make your life immeasurably better, I don’t know what will.
I know some will think this is a trivial way to address body image issues, but these songs became my personal anthems and shaped how I felt about myself growing up. So I’m hoping they make you feel a little less “ugh” and a little more “hey, my face is nice.”
And yes, that headline is a reference to the film “Zoolander.”
Hit the forward arrow to hear the next song and then SING ALONG WITH ME. (Hit “Show Transcript” for lyrics.)
