I heard a song today that LITERALLY made my jaw drop.

And I’m going to tell you about it in case you, like I, don’t always know about current mainstream popular music.

My daughter told me this is a few weeks old.


Here is the music video with EDITED lyrics:

[NOTE:  I couldn’t find the music video with explicit lyrics, but you can READ the lyrics here.]

Now, a few things stand out.

Song lyrics such as:

Wet ass pussy make that pullout game weak.

Bring a bucket and a mop for this wet ass pussy.

I do a kegel while it’s inside.

I want you to park that big Mack truck right in this little garage.

And that’s just a smattering of the song lyrics.

I can’t help myself, the song is catchy and I can already tell will quickly become an annoying earworm:

There’s some whores in this house.

While I was writing this post and listening to the song, my SON came into my bedroom and insisted I turn off this song.

“Why?” I asked, “why would you not tell me about this song?”

“Because if YOU get it stuck in YOUR head then that means you’re going to get it stuck in MINE!”

So there you have it.

This is the song that no millennial wants their Gen X parents to listen to.

Respond appropriately.

Big girl, you are beautiful

When you’re programmed to believe from a young age that your body shape is wrong and needs to be fixed, it’s hard to combat decades of self-doubt.

I challenge my years of learned self-doubt by filling my Instagram stream with plus size models.

Size 12, size 20, size 22+?

They’re all in there.

[Just as an aside, I also follow mainstream beauties like Swimsuit Illustrated, Kate Upton, and Heidi Klum.]

They’re all beautiful women showing off their womanly bodies which don’t adhere to mainstream body guidelines.

And of course, I found this little song which is a like an earworm, it just can’t be unheard once you hear it:

“Big girl, you are beautiful.”

Not a bad chorus to have bouncing around in your head.

Why just yesterday in a fit of body confidence I slipped into a new Little Black Dress and went out with my friend Big Joe to get beers in Campbell at Out Of The Barrel.

Heels, wrap, big hair, LBD – the whole shebang.

Let people look, I figured.

In the end, no one died because I felt good about my non-mainstream body shape.

Although it certainly does feel like the world is coming to an end when you’re in the middle of a pandemic AND firestorm.

The whole time I was singing in my head, “Big girl, you ARE beautiful!”
