I ran across this no ass at all music video by comedian Aisha Tyler and was laughing so hard because I soooo can relate to what she's "rapping" about. I know exactly what it's like to be an ethnic woman with really fair skin and not much junk in the trunk as she sings in the video.
As you can see in my videos I do not look like Sophia Vergara or Salma Hayek or Shakira or JLo or all those other voluptuous Latinas you see in the media. And much like Aisha Tyler my street cred would've probably gotten my ass-kicked by some of the hardcore cholas in my high school.
In case you don't know cholas are female gang members (lady gaga stupidly mentions the term chola descent in one of her songs as if it's something you're born into. Uh, I don't think so Lady Gaga but thanks for trying to include Latinas in your song anyway).
It's funny that the reason I didn't get bullied by cholas in high school was I did their English homework for them on the bus ride home. Yes, I was a writing nerd since I was a kid, actually wrote my first book about a dog when I was only 6 and it won some kind of award for creativity.
Anyway, my point is that Aisha Tyler is not your stereotypical bootylicious black female but she is still beautiful because she is healthy, fit, smart, confident and super funny. She is proof that you don't need to look a certain way or fit some beauty stereotype to be beautiful, successful, and happy.
Perfect body tip: Be sure not to waste too much time hating on your body type or wishing you looked more like this or that type of body. There is more to life than having the "perfect" measurements, the "perfect" booty or "perfect" body, and all that other nonsense most of us women worry about at some point or another.
The best thing you can do to look and feel good is accept yourself as you are and just train right for your booty/body to improve the body type you have and work hard to improve your health, your brain, your sense of humor, your personality, and all the other things that make a woman beautiful : )
