I’m totally into eating clean and healthy and enjoying things in moderation or whatever but I’m pretty sure waffles and donuts should be a part of every day life 

Preach.

"I can’t tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone."

- ― Ed Sheeran (via psych-quotes)

I hate that to work in the music industry (particularly as an artist), if don’t look a certain way, then you’re not given the time of day. Where it’s encouraged for a 17 year old girl to work out and lose the baby face and adopt a sexier image satisfying to the male gaze. I get that image maintenance is part of the territory, I really do. BUT to me, there’s a huge difference between presenting yourself well to craft an image and creating an image that can never actually be achieved in real life. An image that continuously perpetuates unrealistic beauty standards as the norm and expectation.

I look at people like Adele where the talent supersedes the image, and yet her image is still appealing to the masses. She’s recognized generally as a beautiful woman who in her own words “loves food and hates exercise”. Now, there’s nothing wrong with advocating a healthy lifestyle, but if it goes from loving health for the sake of loving health and adopting health (and some actually unhealthy habits) to look like every other artist, actress, or model out there… IDK. It just pisses me off that looking like Mila J or Tinashe (no offense to those beautiful ladies) is the default industry standard with seemingly no interest in diversifying the images. You can be sexy, but why must that be the default for success?

P!nk talking about Stupid Girls [2/2]

Don’t play dumb, even if they want you to.

Props to her for pointing out problematic behavior without putting down the women in general.

"Talk shit about these girls"
"No"

the pressure on first generation children of immigrants 

to prove that you are indeed proof that parents’ sacrifice was worth it

is something that many Americans will never understand

I got to spend yesterday with the loveliest guy. He turned 20. I hope he enjoyed every minute of it :-)
