The World Needs More People Like You

The world needs more people like you, Colbie Caillat.  Most people recognize her from her hit, “Bubbly.” But recently she’s done something that should start a new trend. She completely reversed the makeup process for several women in her video, “Try”, along with herself! And I don’t mean she just made some half-assed attempt to make it appear as though she wasn’t photo-shopped nor wearing makeup. I mean in the end, you can see every pore, hair, and crease in her skin. Her face, and the other women’s faces were completely untouched. You can watch it right meow.

I want to say that it was inspiring… But it shouldn’t be. That’s the issue. Colbie shouldn’t all of a sudden be considered some saint for showing herself as is. Obviously models and celebrities are airbrushed to achieve perfection. I believe it was Cindy Crawford who said something like, “I don’t even look like Cindy Crawford,” making the point that those behind the computer can manipulate the images into something impossible. Whatever sells, right? But I guess one small step in the right direction is better than nothing.
