Behind the Scenes of “All About That Bass” +

How are skinny girls supposed to feel love when your song is about loving only fat bodies?

I’m sorry, but how are fat girls supposed to feel when every advertisement, be it on television or in a magazine, when nearly every movie, shows only thin women? I am completely against body shaming, but the fact remains that there is very little positive representation for bigger girls. Thin women are considered the norm and are far more accepted and you see them everywhere you look in the media. So please, don’t take this the wrong way, but please just let me have a song that makes me, for once, feel good about my body.

But everyone will hear this song. Skiiny people, fat people, fit people, everyone. How can I feel better about myself if I know it’s making other people feel bad?

I don’t usually comment on things like this but I’d just like to point out that nowhere in this gif set does she specifically mention bigger girls. She mentions only that women (in general) need to love their bodies more. I realize the song itself is largely about bigger women but the lyrics do touch on women who are smaller having a distorted view of themselves as well. There really isn’t enough representation for the bigger population and there’s plenty of room for loving every body type no matter what. As for the argument that everyone is hearing the song, not just big people, I’d also like to point out that everyone reads magazines, sees the photoshopped pictures, reads about the latest diet crazes, etc. Sure the audience for this song is extended to more than just big girls, but so is the rest of media.
