Mika may think that big girls are beautiful, but author Umberto Eco is all about the ugly. His newest book is called On Ugliness and he's all about spreading the message that "ugliness is more interesting than beauty. Beauty is frequently boring, everybody knows what beauty is... Christianity is linked to the contempt of the flesh... in some paintings there is a real appreciation of the ugly." Us, we love the ugly! But no, it doesn't make us feel better that we were told by someone at a party last week, "OMG! I totally didn't recognize you! You look pretty!". Um, yeah. [Reuters]
@leMaldeTete: isaw the lipstick thing on the AP this morning. fucking scary, i sent it to my sisters asap.
also. really, everyone has known that ugly is the new hot for like 3 years. why the hell do you think so many normal guys are so into those fucked up looking hipster girls? or the hotness of american apparel ads? I don't know why, but all the girls I am every really really hot for are percieved as kind of ugly or "slightly fucked up looking" by my friends, which is fine by me. less competition and maybe she hasn't gone insane yet from people making her feel like her beauty is the only thing she has going for her.
for real, really pretty girls are THE WORST girls to date. so many are obsessed with their beauty and are obsessed with it and so insecure and it's just like "SHUT THE FUCK UP! I AM SO DRUNK AND I CAN'T EVEN SEE YOU ANYWAYS, SO I DONT CARE IF YOU ARE PRETTY." not only that but they are accustomed to guys treating them like goddesses just because of their looks, and some of us don't care that much or have that much money so we just come up short. plus dating someone much better looking than you is obnoxious.
