The first time I heard One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” the first thing I noticed was within that catchy 90’s style teen girl pop chorus, the band was mocking all of it’s intended listeners. The key demographic for their music is obviously ditzy girls aged 10 - 18. Those lines “You don’t know you’re beautiful\Oh oh oh\That’s what makes you beautiful” might seem on it’s own to be the story of a sweet guy and his love for a girl who is beautiful on the inside, but is that really what the writers intended? Look closely at the lyrics. The first words are “You’re insecure.” paired with “Everyone else in the room can see it\Everyone else but you” Once the chorus kicks in I started to realize what he was really talking about. “You’ll understand why I want you so desperately” They are talking about picking up girls with confidence issues because they are easy, and he’s saying all these nice things, telling them how they’re the only one, because it’s easy. It’s a sport to them. He keeps repeating those words “Baby you light up my world like nobody else” because he’s saying them to multiple girls. One Direction? More like One Track Mind. I have to give them props, the writers duped all of it’s viewers, and possibly even the band performing the song.
