It’s another Monday, which means it’s another Music Monday!
The song I have picked is Beautiful by Christina Aguilera. What I love about this song is that it inspires others to not listen to what other people say about them, because everyone is beautiful in their own way. When I was younger, I always admired her voice, and now that I am much older, I can appreciate the message and the meaning even more now.
Another thing that I like about this video, is that she showcases a positive light on several topics before they were first mentioned, like a gothic look, same sex couples. Considering this video came in 2002, it brought forth a lot of recognition of these topics. I appreciate Christina coming forward and bringing awareness that everyone is human, and beautiful. We shouldn’t let others bring us down.
“I am beautiful no matter what they say-Christina Aguilera, Beautiful
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today”
