Crap That Needs To End

Oh hey there internet. Thought I'd spoil you with a blog post cause y'know, I'm nice like that.

I have some beef with you world. I think it's time we sat down and discussed this cause I'm a lover and not a hater. Yeah I don't know what I mean either, I'm so tired I'm just throwing out any sentence that sounds good at the time. To the point, there are some ickle issues that are bugging me and I feel it's time we got this out in the open. These things kinda need to stop.

1. Selfie Complaints.

It may surprise you to know, selfies aren't that new. They've been around for a very long time and it is in fact the platforms such as instagram and the power of hashtag that have made it more of a visible trend. Now don't lie, we've all done a selfie. Even my mum has started doing selfies. In my eyes, I have no issues with selfies. Some call it vanity and complain their facebook and instagram feeds are flooded with them. However to me a selfie is an individuals way of saying 'Hey, look a me, I look good and feel good today and therefore I want to show that to the world'. What is wrong with that? In a world where we put so much pressure on ourselves everyday to fight with our self esteem, confidence and image whilst aspiring to be the impossible and unrealistic, selfies are a way of fighting back all that pressure. Society: 1 Societal pressures: 0. So grab your iPhone, put on your favourite lippy and get posting. I wanna see those hashtags man!

2. Body Labelling

This leads me to my second point. If I had the power to, I'd place a law where it is illegal to pass comment on a woman or mans figure in print and digital media. I'm really 21st Century tired of reading about a reporters comment on weight gain, body shape or so on on whoever's in the headlines. One minute a paper is mocking a celebrity for her curves and the next minute they're beating on her for her weight loss. You can't win. I'm lucky enough to not be influenced by societal pressure. I'll read an article that implies anything past size 10 is fat, I'll get angry about it and then I'll continue to live my life loving chocolate and cake. However this isn't the case for a lot of people who can take it to heart. We need to stop this and learn to appreciate our bodies instead of attacking them. And I quote:

'Foundation and a blow dryer do not a woman make'

3. Leonardo DiCaprio Not Realising I'm The One

Yeah so it's getting pretty annoying. Apparently Leonardo DiCaprio has dated a long stream of supermodels yet hasn't settled down.Well I wouldn't call myself a detective but it can be deduced that supermodels are not his type. I also wouldn't call myself a theorist but I'm not a supermodel so in theory Mrs Laura DiCaprio is much more durable yes?

4. American TV Breaking Up With Me

Those near and dear to me know I'm obsessed with American culture. They also know that I religiously watch my fair share of American TV shows. In fact I watch more American TV then British TV. Over the past few years one by one all my American TV shows have ended or as I liked to call, broken up with me. From Friends to Desperate Housewives to Gossip Girl, they've all left me crying and asking myself what did I do wrong? This week How I Met Your Mother ended and oh my was that a real shock/tear jerker. I proceeded to cry in my pyjamas whilst eating cake, it wasn't my finest moment. I know the rest of my American TV shows are about to end over the next 12 months. I need to seriously stock up on ice cream. America why you do this to me?!

What's on your mind in the media that needs to end? Is it Miley Cyrus's bad taste in performance? Or maybe it's seeing Kimye plastered on the front cover of Vogue. I'd love to know!
