Look, I get that “unrealistic body standards” has become a buzz phrase, so overused that it’s been satirized by a whole genre of memes. But there’s a reason we can’t stop talking about it, and it’s because the only progress that’s been made to dispel societal body standards is a change of style. There is probably nothing more hurtful than receiving messages from every angle that your body is fundamentally wrong and that you are unlovable because of it.
All that said, as a woman with little titties and a fat belly, I cannot stress to you how amazing it is to finally hear a song that espouses the virtues of my body type. And it’s not just the usual “hey you’re beautiful even though you’re imperfect,” no, this is straight up “I can catch so much dick with these A-cups. Watch me.”
Princess Nokia is a fervent feminist. She coined the term Urban Feminism, co-founded the Smart Girl Club, a collective that empowers women, and most importantly for the cause, she punched a white boy three times for disrespecting her. As a musical artist, she is completely self-managed and independent, which allows her to have total creative control. Basically, she’s just an all around bad bitch and as a woman artist I am deeply inspired by her.
Unfortunately, Princess Nokia isn’t on Spotify, so we haven’t included her in our playlist, but you can listen to her music and her podcast on soundcloud.
