The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

Pardonnez-moi - L'interview de Stromae

Super interesting interview with Stromae - particularly what he has to say around 5 min in. This man is incredible. I can’t say it enough. If you don’t know who he is, I swear your life will improve once you do.

Hey petit bébé il faudra se taire
Oui même si Papa frappe ta mère
Ben il faudra s’y fai-ai-re
Je sais qu’il fait mal même quand il s’en va
mais c’est tout à fait normal car Papa a les plus gros bra-a-as
Et si monsieur louche sur toi
Il faudra se taire pendant et après que monsieur te touchera
Chut, chut! il faudra se taire
C’est dur ouais, c’est dur ouais, mais il faudra s’y faire

Hey, little baby, you’ll have to keep quiet
Yes, even if Daddy beats your mom
Well, you’ll have to get used to it
I know that he hurts her, even when he’s gone
But that’s quite normal since Daddy has the biggest arms
And if that man eyes you up
You’ll have to keep quiet while he’ll be groping you even once it’s over 
Hush, hush! you’ll have to keep quiet, it’s hard yeah, it’s hard yeah
But you’ll have to get used to it
