Support Women Artists Sunday: Caitlin Crosby

Caitlin Crosby is an artist who gives me hope for the pop music genre.

Rarely in pop music do you hear a young woman singing about body acceptance, but that's exactly what Caitlin Crosby sings about.  Her songs Imperfect is the New Perfect, and Flawz preach acceptance, and loving yourself for you.

with lyrics like

"I don't wanna look like you because You're too perfect, too perfect And I don't want to fill your shoes because It's not worth it, it's not worth it I don't fit the mold I am real Too colorful to conceal Imperfect is the new perfect"


"Just dry your eyes, you're beautiful I understand, it's logical 'Cause these images are everywhere They'll make believe, so don't compare I will not compare We're every shape and size You know we're just perfect, just perfect We love our hips, our thighs Because they're just perfect, just perfect I don't fit the mold, I am real I'm too colorful to conceal Imperfect is the new perfect"

Caitlin Crosby's songs reveal how futile it is to try and look like the photoshopped women in magazines, how silly it is to try and be something you're not, and how it is more perfect to be yourself, flaws and all.  Her words of body acceptance can help raise self esteem instead of trying to tear it down through the unrealistic ideals presented by mainstream media.  Crosby's work is so unlike anything else out there.  It's amazing to have a pop singer remind the audience that everyone is amazing and beautiful.

Imperfect is the New Perfect
