Nicki Minaj’s reason behind the “Anaconda” music video
Ok I like this song and even he well meaning to empower curvy bodies…but
" Fuck the skinny bitches
fuck the skinny bitches in the club. I wanna see all the big fat ass bitches in the motherfucking club. Fuck you if you skinny bitches WHAT?”
Why does it have to put down skinny bodies to empower curvy bodies?
In “it’s all about the bass” it also is similar.
" I’m bringing booty back. Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that"
Yeah it may be an unpopular opinion, but I don’t think it’s Necessary to put down skinny people to build up curvy people.
the thing is is that i kind find a billion songs in which curvier bodies are put down, you look in magazines and what do you see? mostly skinny girls. you see them on billboards, you see skinny girls being glorified everywhere.
catching feelings about someone making a song to make the other women feel good about the bodies that aren’t plastered everywhere seems ridiculous.
Sorry my opinion is dumb… it’s not like I am putting the song or artist down though. It doesn’t bother me that much (I actually like this song), I just noticed that about the lyrics. Imo it’s not cool, and again its the same with any body type. Idk how that’s dumb to think anyone putting people down because of their body though…
See, you say you think it’s wrong that there are songs that put certain body types down, but I haven’t heard you say that songs that put bigger body types down are wrong when those songs come out. You chose to start this conversation when a song with a different message came out. The other person who commented already said what I’m about to say. Your body type is already represented everywhere. Movies, television, magazines, practically every advertisement… I could go on.
The constant shaming of larger bodies in my opinion is worse than the occasional “skinny bitch” line. It doesn’t affect people in the same way. What is “fuck the skinny bitches” really going to do to you besides make you feel uncomfortable for the duration of the song? From every direction there’s another message constantly being thrown at larger bodies. I think you already know what that message is.
If that’s not enough, my own ED was partially rooted in what skinny represented to me. There are so many things associated with being thin, being successful, attractive, intelligent, more interesting, more deserving, while larger bodies signify laziness, a lack of control, and greediness. Know where those messages came from? Various forms of media.
It’s completely different and shaming larger bodies is far more dangerous.
I said that any body shaming is bad. My issue was one body type being put down to lift another. That is not necessary. It doesn’t matter if thin bodies are represented everywhere. I can’t support degrading one body type in light of another. I am not all that into music, but if I saw a song putting down curvy bodies, and/or putting curvy bodies down in light of thin ones, I’d have the same opinion.
