If you are in your mid-fifties, like me, you might not recognize these names, but never fear. These twenty-something young women are really going places, and it won’t be long before every household in America knows about them.
I’m learning a lot from these girls. Each has her own distinct talents and style, and that diversity gives them their beauty.
Rolling Stone magazine describes Meghan Trainor‘s hit song, “It’s All About the Bass,” as “a pep talk for those who don’t have model-skinny bodies.” The song not only has a great beat, but the inspiring words push me faster and further as I move on my elliptical machine.
The same with Taylor Swift‘s music. The insights from songs in her cd, “1989” (I’m guessing that’s the year she was born–I turned 30 that year), are wise beyond her age. Her lyrics remind us “the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate,” and “the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake.” And her “sick beat” makes me want to jump up and dance around. You guessed it, my favorite song on the cd is “Shake It Off.”
And finally the hilarious Aussie actress, Rebel Wilson, just as her name implies, fights every stereotype of celebrity Hollywood. Appearances in “Pitch Perfect” and “Night at the Museum” showcase her acting and singing talents. And her popularity proves that you don’t have to be an itsy bitsy girl to succeed in show business.
So if you are looking for some inspiration this year, look to our youth. These girls demonstrate that when you discover your inner self, your outer style will fall naturally into place. And that can be pretty fabulous.
BRAVA, Meghan, Taylor, and Rebel.
