Amy Schumer Doesn't Care What People Think Of Her, Props To Her

Being yourself shouldn't be taboo, and Amy is showing us that.

We women are always so hard on ourselves, staring in mirrors over and over again, picking at our flaws. We loathe dressing room lighting and the way other women always look during makeup tutorials.

Every day, we feel pressure to look perfect, while never even feeling close.

But if there's one person that is helping change that, it's Amy Schumer. Her recent movie, "I Feel Pretty," is the perfect example of why we should all give less f*cks and just live our lives.

Here are some reasons we all need to live more like Amy Schumer.

1. She is unapologetically herself.

Amy Schumer is exactly herself, and she's not afraid of it. Not only does she embrace her body, but she holds her own opinions without fear.

2. She isn't trying to be perfect.

Perfection is unachievable and completely relative. Amy always finds a way of saying, "This is who I am, so deal with it." And that is my absolute favorite thing about her!

3. She understands that "pretty" girls can have self-esteem issues too.

This was something I loved about her movie "I Feel Pretty."

It touched on the assumption that women who are fit and gorgeous aren't intelligent. It also touched on the idea that they can't be broken up with.

But trust me, "gorgeous" people are real people with real feelings. Every girl has battled self-esteem issues at some point, no matter she looks like.

4. She isn't stick thin, but she has still shown her body on TV.

This is one of the realest things about Amy, and I am 100 percent here for it!

As a curvy girl with hips and thick thighs, I fully appreciate seeing someone who looks like me in her underwear on television. Being thick, curvy or chubby should not be so shunned in Hollywood. It's REAL.

5. She has her own opinions.

Being a comedian definitely gives Amy a leg up when it comes to being honest and real, but let me just say that we could all follow that example. We are who we are. Don't run from it!

6. She is confident.

Confidence can go a long way, and it's something that can draw other people to you. My favorite part of "I Feel Pretty" was the fact that everyone around Amy's character loved her because she believed in herself.

Ladies, let's all believe in ourselves!

7. She isn't preoccupied with following a timeline.

Sure, marriage and kids are awesome. But is that all there is to live for? Is life determined by what age you do those things?

The answer is NO. And it is perfectly acceptable to live your life without putting a timer on it.

8. She doesn't care to make men uncomfortable.

Calling men out on their bullshit is actually kind of hard. It's easier to keep quiet and not ruffle any feathers, but that's exactly how men get away with everything.

Amy keeps things 100 percent real with them, and that's exactly what I'm going to try to do from now on.

9. She doesn't sex-shame.

As women, can we all just agree that we do like sex? Why is it only OK for men to feel this way?

Shaming one another gets us nowhere. I love that Amy doesn't hide this side of herself and is honest about sleeping with people. Sex shouldn't be a "dirty word."

So, it's OK for men to hook up but not women? I think that you should do whatever you want with whomever you want. It's your life.

10. She is beautiful.

Ladies, we are all beautiful. Let's stop pretending we're not.

Each and every one of us is beautiful in our own way. Whether we are skinny or fat, pale or dark, have long hair or no hair, we are beautiful! So, stop feeling so insecure. Stop doubting yourself. OWN IT! You. Are. Beautiful.

Just like the rest of us, Amy isn't perfect. But I sure do appreciate the message she has been sending.

Insecurity will eat you alive if you let it. Stop comparing yourself to girls in magazines and just be you. You don't need to be better. You just need to be confident. You've got this!

11. She is hilarious.

Life is messy, so why not embrace it? Instead of trying to make it perfect, let's just agree that things are ridiculous and relax. Being able to laugh at ourselves is key to making it through rough moments. So give yourself a break. Laugh. It's OK.

Amy, you've set the stage. Now it's time for all of us to take the lead.

Tom Holland first stormed onto the scene as Spiderman in "Captain America: Civil War" in 2016, and we all loved his performance in the movie. However, now that time has gone on, there's another reason he's stolen all of our hearts: He's one hundred percent boyfriend material! He's absolutely adorable, is a complete dork without ever meaning to, and he loves all dogs. There are so many reasons Tom Holland is perfect boyfriend material, but here are ten of the most important reasons.

1. Let's start with the obvious: He's Spiderman.

What girl wouldn't want to date a superhero? Spiderman is one of the best superheroes ever so it would be amazing to date the actor who plays him. Also, if you didn't cry during Tom Holland's final performance in "Infinity War", you're lying.

2. He loves dogs.

Not only does he have a cute pit bull named Tessa, but he also seems to make friends with every dog he meets. It would be so wonderful to play with dogs with him!

3. He's always down for adventures.

One of the best parts of dating someone is getting to try new things and go on adventures with them. Since Tom travels the world all the time to promote his movies, you and he could maybe take time every now and then to try something new, like surfing!

4. He's that adorable British boyfriend you've always dreamt of.

Yes, celebrities like Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch have a more "suave Brit" personality about them, but Tom Holland is the "adorable Brit" every girl has ever dreamt of dating. He's pretty much cornered the market at this point.

5. He's just a really big dork.

I mean, just look at him! I don't think there would be anyone better to laugh or do dorky things with than Tom Holland.

6. He's got a great group of friends.

I don't know about you, but I would love to hang out with Zendaya and Jacob Balaton. All three of these guys just seem like perfect squad goals.

7. He truly loves and appreciates the people in his life.

Tom always shows his gratitude for every opportunity he's been given and never hesitates to support his co-stars. That, to me, is true friendship.

8. He's got a great sense of style.

That is one classy outfit right there. And the muscles are a great bonus.

9. He's well-traveled.

How awesome would it be to see the world with Tom as he goes on promotional tours? Think of all the cool things you could experience together!

10. He's a pure ray of sunshine who deserves the world.

5 Reasons That This Taylor Era Will Be One Of The Most Fun Eras

...Are you ready for it?

86

Taylor Swift has had many eras. From the simple country era all the way to the darker and edgier era of reputation. I have a feeling that this next era is going to be the most fun and happy we have seen of Taylor.

1. The Music Videos

Everyone, even if they do not like Taylor Swift, will agree on one thing: She has some of the most incredible, eye-catching, and cryptic music videos out there. She's a woman who pays attention to detail, likes to throw in hints about new singles and album titles. The woman is a genius when it comes to planning a music video.

2. The Album

The album. It always comes down to the album. The first singles are never the best from the album. They are enough to get you excited, but they do not show the depth Taylor has when she writes music. Never make judgement or assumptions based off the first couple of singles. She has the ability to take that and completely flip it on its' head. I am definitely hoping for a pastel lovey-dovey dream of an album though.

3. The Tours 

Taylor has a knack for tours. She is one of the most incredible performers out there. I should know, I saw her on the reputation stadium tour. She's so detail orientated that it makes for one heck of a performance. I am imagining a giant pastel dream, rainbows, love. I know I'll definitely be seeing her on the TS7 Tour.

4. The Interviews

"There will be no further explanation. There will just be reputation." was the motto of the reputation era. This meant no interviews, no promo. Her reputation was going to speak for itself. I am happy to say that it seems that she is going to be doing more live performances and interviews this era. I love a good Taylor interview.

5. The Collabs

She has already collabed with Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco for the first single off the new album. Who could possibly be next? Enough said.

This era will be magical.
