I’d never heard of Colbie Caillat before today, but I think I’m a fan. Not necessarily because of her music, but because of the brilliant message behind her new video – ‘Try’.
Tired of the constant Photoshopping, airbrushing, make-upping, fake-lashing, hair-extensioning that she and other stars have to undergo and fed up with the dangerous messages all of this stuff sends to women, she has bared all.
Check out her refreshing video:
Also, have a read of her interview with Elle magazine in which she shares some of the thinking behind it.
When asked by the magazine what she thinks is the hardest part about being a female in today’s society, she answers: “Trying to live up to other people’s expectations. When we do get dolled up, we get more compliments. It’s just what happens. When you have a cute outfit on and your makeup looks amazing, the first thing people comment on is your image. When you don’t wear make-up, you hear things like, “Oh wow, you look tired or you’re so brave for not wearing make-up!”
