Just the way you are!

There are a lot of negative messages in music today, but let’s take a moment to focus on a positive message! Bruno Mars’ hit “Just the way you are” focuses on love and respect and emphasizes that his girl doesn’t need to change or be objectified to be loved.

Check out the video, posted on Youtube from Elektra Records! Ladies, makes you wish you were the girl on the couch, right?

    I think this is one of the prettiest songs ever! It is so sweet. Most of the songs today are typically degrading women and talking down upon them or trying to urge women to become something or someone that they’re not. Howevver, Bruno Mars speaks of uplifting and encouraging words for a woman. He makes it quite clear that he likes a woman just the way she is. He does not need her to change anything about herself because she is just right for him. This is a prime example the respect of oneself that a healthy teen dating relationship should have. I believe that if less degrading songs were made and more songs like this were recorded, we would see a change in the men, women, and children of the world.
