Victoria's Secret by Jax
I heard this for the first time coming from my daughter’s room. Megan is ten and has already struggled with body issues because of bullying at school. I was really annoyed because this frame of the “perfect body” is basically nothing but a sales pitch.
When my daughter was eight she was watching The Pussycat Dolls on X-Factor (or something like that) with her mum. She asked a question that made me so proud, “Why do girls have to dance around and sing in their underwear but boys don’t”. I saw the injustice too but definitely hadn’t realised the extent at the time. So a song telling girls very directly don’t listen to the perception. That bodies are different and you should love you for you. Deepest and utmost respect Jax and from my daughter who is a big fan, thank you for being so cool and honest.
I'm fascinated with the human body and the way it moves. No two people are exactly alike. Even twins have subtle differences. The body itself is art and the way we move is a dance. Size, shape and color only add to a person's beauty.
For me what truly matters and what makes a person attractive is the mind. Clothing should be a reflection of your personality not a way to highlight the shallow "goods" underneath.
Thank you Jax for this catchy song and the message behind it.
All our best and love
