Ugly Meter App Rates Your Beauty

The Ugly Meter app for the iPhone is designed to scan your photo and then measure your level of beauty. The rating scale results are numbered from one to ten with ten being the ugliest. The app even comments on the results. The thought that this deserved media attention is insane. iPhone users have already downloaded this 99-cent app over 20,000 times.
What about the woman who has already constantly obsessed over her body image? Now they have something that will tear her even further apart. Drive her to plastic surgery or to starvation thinking her face is too fat.
Who set the criteria and determined what's considered beautiful? We've all heard the statement that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Well now it's in the hands of the next iPhone carrier. Mothers will be forced to console their daughters after some student cruelly uses this app to poke fun. Life isn't a Snow White fairytale and there's no magic mirror on the wall. I'd like a chance to rate the creators.
Where do we as consumers draw the line? Why is there a need to have such malicious things in our possession? As long as people buy the apps, they'll continue to offer them. This app's creator maintains that this was only done in fun. However, the reality is that people will use this for malicious purposes. I was also astounded to find that the app has to be purchased directly from The Ugly Meter will probably make them some exuberant amount of money.
What we as women have to remember is that we're in control of our destiny. If you feel it, believe it, and don't let something like this app bring you down.

Whip My Hair

I'm a get more shine than a little bit 
Soon as I hit the stage applause I'm hearing it 
whether it's black stars black cars I'm feeling it 
but can't none of them whip it like I do 
I, gets it in mmmm yea I go hard 
when they see me pull up I whip it real hard 
I whip it real hard,real hard, I whip it real hard 
Don't let haters keep me off my grind 
Keep my head up I know I'll be fine 
Keep fighting until I get there 
When i'm down and I feel like giving up 

I whip my hair back and forth 
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it) 
I whip my hair back and forth

Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith has always been one of my favorite Hollywood couples. They are very talented and you can't underscore their accomplishments as business savvy entrepreneurs. The way they have taken their talents and coupled them with smart career decisions is amazing. Their children have taken to the acting and musical talents of mom and dad and are making a lasting impression.  Willow Smith has turned my house into a dance scene. This almost 10 year old has everyone singing her tune. The chorus is so catchy you can't help but sing along.

Jaden showed is true acting abilities in Karate Kid. The control and concentration that were involved learning karate are not something most children his age could handle. Living in China and learning new cultures, I'm sure was hard on him too. However, Jaden managed all this and the movie was pretty good.

I enjoyed watching Willow and her Mohawk, liveliness and creativity. How many nine years old young ladies would dare to cut their hair drastically? Actually, how many mothers would even agree to let them? She has embraced her own style and is loving her uniqueness. The video is well done, and I love how she whips her hair and colors the room. She is definitely a character, and I can't wait to see what her family has planned next.
