From her speech on “Black Girls Rock”:
“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.
This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.
Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.”
- Janelle Monáe
I love everything about it.
My stretch marks
My thick thighs
My large butt
I. Love. My. Body. So. Much.
I don’t like family guy, but OMG THAT GIF! perfect. Also, I second your opinion. It took me time and a lot of work to love and accept my fat body as myself, but it was so worth it. And even though it is sometimes still a struggle, that’s OK too, because when that happens there are people like sourcedumal out there who inspire me and make me laugh and want my very own flying dolphin. <3
Donna Meagle appreciation post! Retta is makes Parks and Rec such a joy to watch… along with all the other actors of course :-D
“So what’d you do today?”
“Got a lot of glitter in my bellybutton.”
Jiggly bellies are awesome bellies. I love this very much.
