I'd actually argue the other way. She's not sticking it to people for being thin. She's saying it's okay to be comfortable in your own skin, regardless of your size. Why should it rile you so much anyway? You don't see Cee Lo Green having to put up with this shit do you?
I don't like that song either. It's supposed to be about body positivity, but then she puts down thin girls by calling them "skinny bitches," and then implies that they're insecure by saying, "naw I'm just playing, I know you think you're fat."
Like, if you really think they're insecure and have body image issues, then why call them "skinny bitches?" Isn't that a bit... mean spirited?
I like it. At first, I didn't. Then... it sorta... kinda... grew on me. I don't think it's about skinny shaming. I really don't. I just think it's a catchy tune that, sure, may have had a couple "offensive" lines it it, but it's whatever. I've been "skinny shamed" before and it sucks, but I don't take offense to the song. People really need to stop getting so butthurt over small things. There are bigger things to worry about that than a stupid song.
Honestly, I like her voice and her songs are catchy. Do I agree with 100% of her messages? Not exactly... But if you take her songs with a grain of salt I like them. They are fun, up beat, and catchy. The lyrics stick in my head for days after listening to them.
I like it. It's catchy. It's kind of old now though, don't you think? I don't like how it shames skinny girls, but it gives overweight girls a bit of a confidence boost, which is cool. That's just me though.
Almost any song that gets that kind of play can get annoying.
I mean, I don't think she says anything about how women shouldn't be thin - it's more so about embracing curves or, really, embracing however your body looks. There's enough propaganda around embracing thin/skinny women so I don't see a problem whatsoever.
Wait... there are people who aren't annoyed by her? Unbelievable.
