“The Armpit Song” Should Be Our New Beauty Anthem

Ami Angelowicz / September 6, 2013

“The Armpit Song,” by Siwan Clark, perfectly captures the anxiety caused by trying to keep up with societal beauty pressures of eyebrow plucking, nail painting, feet scraping, boob padding and all that hassling about getting vajazzled. To further drive home the point, the video stars, not a woman, but a man performing all of these beauty treatments Clark sings about. As she so wisely points out in her lyrics, “even though this song is quite feminist, there’s still no need to mention armpits” because she’s “not brave enough to fix it” on her own. I would help her, but I need to go buy some hair dye and make a waxing appointment. When will it end!? [Jezebel]
