In the last few years, I have heard an abundance of people say that music is no longer as good as it used to be or that artists are now less talented. Yes, music is changing, but how can we expect it not to? But I am tired of hearing people say that my generation doesn't know what good music is. So, here are 10 artists under 30 that are making incredible music.

1.Billie Eilish

Age 16, Billie Eilish is taking the world by storm. She's probably most well known for her songs "lovely" and "bellyache."

2. Khalid

Khalid, age 20, has had a quick rise to fame in the last two years. His laid-back style and relevant lyrics have made a large impact on those around his age.

3. Shawn Mendes 

Also age 20, Shawn Mendes is a favorite for many teen girls, but is more talented than many like to credit him for.

4. Harry Styles 

Okay, I'm going to say it. I think leaving One Direction is the best decision Harry Styles could have made. At age 24 he has created an unparalleled style.

5. Ariana Grande 

Ariana Grande is 25 and it currently breaking records with her latest song, "thank u, next." In the last few years, she has transformed from a Nickelodeon star to a feminist icon.

6. Chance the Rapper

Also age 25, Chance is not only an incredible artist but an incredible role model for people of our generation. He is incredibly dedicated to what he cares about.

7. Demi Lovato 

At age 26, Demi Lovato is the embodiment of raw passion and strength. It takes a special kind of strength to be so open and real with fans the way she has.

8. Ed Sheeran 

I think because he has accomplished so much it is easy to forget that Ed Sheeran is on 27-years-old. I have seen him in concert twice and somehow I think he is better live than recorded.

9. Charlie Puth

Also age 27, Charlie Puth has become one of my favorite artists. After seeing him in concert last summer I have gained a new respect for him not only as a singer but a musician.

10. The Weekend

Full name, Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, the Canadian singer is currently 28. I have never been a huge fan of The Weeknd, but after seeing him live I cannot deny his amount of sheer talent.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
