Lupita Nyong’o Brings the Quote of the Day | lupita nyongo 2 celebrity quotes beauty body image

On beauty and dark skin:

“European standards of beauty are something that plague the entire world—the idea that darker skin is not beautiful, that light skin is the key to success and love. Africa is no exception. When I was in the second grade, one of my teachers said, ‘Where are you going to find a husband? How are you going to find someone darker than you?’ I was mortified. I remember seeing a commercial where a woman goes for an interview and doesn’t get the job. Then she puts a cream on her face to lighten her skin, and she gets the job! This is the message: that dark skin is unacceptable. I definitely wasn’t hearing this from my immediate family—my mother never said anything to that effect—but the voices from the television are usually much louder than the voices of your parents.”

On how much weight she gained while pregnant:

I’m 5 feet, 2 inches and I started out at 106 pounds and guess how much I weight now? Around 145 pounds. And the worst part is that my feet are still size five and they’re going, ”What’s going on with all this weight?” They’re about to snap from underneath me with the strain. I’m still quite muscular, so if you’re running around carrying 40 pounds of extra weight, you’re going to build extra muscle.’

… says 25 year-old Hayden, who is currently 7 months pregnant with her first child.

On her hit song All About That Bass:

When I wrote it, the words flew out of my mouth—I had the lyrics down in about 45 minutes. I hope the song helps girls love themselves more, because they’re adorable. Women too. We should all have a big banner, or maybe a neon sign, in our bedrooms: Every inch of you is perfect.

On how she was the thicker one among her friends:

I grew up on Nantucket, in Massachusetts, and played football in school. My crowd was all the skinny, beautiful, popular girls and I was their, like, thicker friend. This one dude I was in love with told me in seventh grade, ‘You’d be so much hotter if you were 10 pounds lighter.’ It crushed me.

… says 20 year-old Meghan in Glamour.
