Make Room for Katy Perry on the Curvy Bandwagon
As some celebrities back away from the "curvy" label, others are embracing it. While promoting her new makeup line with CoverGirl, Katy Perry talks about body acceptance with Mashable. The pop singer knows labels are a touchy subject, and not all women want to be judged by their shape. "I think owning the terms is on an individual basis. It's about what you want to call yourself. We don't see ourselves in the same way. I know for me, I'm curvy, I'm not sample size, but I represent a lot of people out there. I want to be relatable. That's really important to me, while not losing my mind in this weird fucking human experiment I'm going through." For Perry, she's trying to change the dialogue about body acceptance for the better. "There have been decades of bad messaging and we are rewiring now," she says to Mashable. "Long gone are the days where you are not socially aware. You can't unsee all that crazy shit and not try to do something to change it." Debate Perry's body type all you want. Her heart's in the right place.
