Is there such a thing as TOO Confident?

I was listening to this song the other day as I was going to work and I enjoyed it because it was catchy and I admit it was stuck in my head for the rest of the day but as I was listening to the song it began to HATE IT!


Keri Hilson - Pretty Girl Rock Lyrics

Uh uh uh aahh uh uh
I can do the pretty girl rock rock
Rock to the pretty girl rock rock rock
Now what’s your name

My name is Keri, I’m so very
Fly oh my, it’s a little bit scary
Boys wanna marry, looking at my derrière
And you can stare but if you touch it Imma bury

Pretty as a picture
Sweeter than a swisher
Mad cause I’m cuter than the girl as with ya
I ain’t gotta talk about it baby you can see it
But if you want I’ll be happy to repeat it

My name is Keri, I’m so very
Fly oh my, it’s a little bit scary
Boys wanna marry, looking at my derrière
And you can stare but if you touch it Imma bury

Pretty as a picture
Sweeter than a swisher
Mad cause I’m cuter than the girl as with ya
I can talk about it cause I know that I’m pretty
And if you know it too then ladies sing it with me

All eyes on me when I walk in,
No question that this girl’s a 10
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
My walk, my talk, the way I dress
It’s not my fault so please don’t trip
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful

Aye, now do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock
All my ladies do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock

(Now where you at)
If your looking for me you can catch me (that’s why)
Cameras flashing, daddy turned his head just as soon as I passed him
Girls think I’m conceded cause I know I’m attractive
Don’t worry about what I think, why don’t you ask him? (owoaah!)

Get yourself together, don’t hate (never do it)
Jealousy is the ugliest trait (don’t, never do it)
I can talk about it cause I know that I’m pretty
And if you know it too then ladies sing it with me

All eyes on me when I walk in,
No question that this girl’s a 10
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
My walk, my talk, the way I dress
It’s not my fault so please don’t trip
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful

Doing the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock
Do the pretty girl rock rock
All my ladies do the pretty girl rock rock rock
Get along with your pretty girl rock rock rock
Still show me your pretty girl rock rock rock
All my ladies do the pretty girl rock rock rock

Sing it with me now
All eyes on me when I walk in,
No question that this girl’s a 10
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
My walk, my talk, the way I dress
It’s not my fault so please don’t trip
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful

All eyes on me when I walk in,
No question that this girl’s a 10
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
My walk, my talk, the way I dress
It’s not my fault so please don’t trip
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful
Don’t hate me cause I’m beautiful

Owoahaha!


It got me to thinking is there such a thing as TOO much confidence. I mean don't get me wrong I think every women should feel good about herself and I would never want to say that someone doesn't have the right to feel beautiful BUT to what extent does your confidence end up hurting others? I feel like this song promotes that fact that women who are stereotypically "beautiful" are the only beautiful women in the world. There are so many other songs that have promoted beauty and confidence in such a more classy and respectful way that it sucks that this song is here.

Personally I think the most beautiful women I know are the one's who don't realize just how beautiful they are. The one's who don't put hours into how they look each day. The women who lets their personality shine. The one's who warm and friendly to EVERYONE. The women who doesn't think she is better than anyone, or that anyone is better than her. These women are the one's who should be celebrated. These women are the one's who make the world a better place rather than making others feel uncomfortable and like they aren't part of this exclusive "beautiful ladies" club.

I don't know maybe I'm being over sensitive of a bit too feminist but if you know me you know I'm not some revolutionary feminist women. I love cooking and cleaning and I would love to be a stay at home mom but that doesn't mean I don't believe in the power of a women!
