Magazines Make Me Sick!
Okay, so I promise I absolutely never read these gossip rags, but my mom brought home a People magazine from her trip and I ended up flipping through it. Pretty much the same old stuff I really don't care for- Oh! She's so fat! Relationship SCANDAL! Get this look! Seriously?! These people don't have anything to do with my life, I'm never going to know them, so why do I need to know what's going on in their private lives?
Anyways, I happened upon the above page, and I couldn't believe what I read! For those too lazy to read the picture, it quotes Beyonce as saying, "I'm always in pain! My earring are heavy, and my heels are hurting- they hurt all the time. But you know you have to sacrifice for beauty. You just kind of get numb after a while."
...WHAT? That's such bullshit! No one should ever have to sacrifice anything for "beauty". That's such a horrible message to give out to everyone! Beauty is about confidence in yourself. No pair of ridiculous uncomfortable shoes or huge dangly earrings is going to make you look beautiful, especially if you're in pain! It is definitely not okay to make yourself suffer for another person's standard of beauty. Ignoring your body just to wear something that's in style now is completely absurd, and the fact that a huge star is encouraging it makes me very disturbed.
What do you think, lovelies? Do you agree with her? Or do you think that that is absolutely ridiculous? I'd love to know what other people think on the matter. ♥
