Has anyone seen the video "Elsa- I Don't Need a Man"? In this video, Elsa sings to the classic-er princesses (Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, and Jasmine) It infuriates me for two reasons.
1. She shames the other princesses for falling in love/wanting to fall in love. For one, not all of them were lovesick ninnies- Belle and Jasmine wanted adventure, Belle didn't let Gaston woo her, and Jasmine didn't appreciate being treated like a prize. And is it really so bad that the others fell in love? They were classic fairytale movies made in a classic time period. Their love stories were unrealistic, yes, but Elsa should not shame them because they were products of their time.
2. If any princess should be singing this song, it should be Mulan, Tiana, Merida (much as I hate her), Jasmine, or others. NOT Elsa! I'm sick of everyone acting like she's such a strong role model just because she has ice powers and doesn't get married. To me, she is a weak role model, weaker than Snow White, because at least Snow can stay positive and happy and make the best of a bad situation. All Elsa does is shut everyone out and run away from her problems, leaving the kingdom to freeze.
The one good thing about that video is that the vocals were really nice :) What do you guys think?
Also, if you don't agree, 1. I respect your opinion and would love to hear it! 2. If I offended you I'm sorry!! 3. Please explain in a kind way how you disagree. Thanks for reading guys, have a lovely day!
