Born This Way

September 21, 2011 1 comment

I am a gleek. If you don’t know what that is where have you been? I always loved music growing up, it was a way for me to relax or feel better. This show it is about a group of high school students (who are definitely not high school students) who join the glee club, and use music to help with problems they are facing. They are the same problems each one of us grows up with.

Episode 18 was titled Born This Way. In this episode the characters come to embrace the things that they don’t like about themselves. This was probably one of the biggest things that influenced me in deciding on this topic. I found it refreshing that they focused on embracing their faults and they shared them with the world.

Check out this song which is a mash up of West Side Story’s ‘I Feel Pretty’ and TLC’s ‘Unpretty’. This song goes along with how I feel about my life at times. Some days I feel pretty, but sometimes I have those days where I just feel off, not pretty. In this scene where the song is done, one of the character’s Rachel is trying to decide if she wants to get a nose job after she broke hers. She is thinking she wants another characters, Quinn, nose. I highly recommend this episode as it shows that we are not the only ones who feel unpretty. Hope you enjoy it. 🙂
