Recently I have been paying more attention to diversity of representation in the media I enjoy.
I have also been quite fed up with music without meaning. Don’t get me wrong, catchy songs are great–but a song where the same four phrases are repeated twenty seven times ? (“Feliz Navidad,” I’m looking at you)
So, while one can argue that, because the singer is yet another young, slim, white, privileged woman, this song is just more of the same…well, I really like the message of the song, and I absolutely love the video:
And, say what you will, it takes courage for Ms Caillat to ‘take it all off’ on camera.
