Most Girls Lyrics
Some girls in nothin' but sweatpants, looking like a princess
Some girls kiss new lips every single night
They're stayin' out late cause they just celebrating life
You know some days you feel so...

I think it's about being empowered. That most girls are strong, smart and independant. And that she wants to be like those girls.
When I heard this song, this was what I thought Here's my interpretation:
SO I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG!
It's all about self empowerment and how all girls are unique, independant, strong and smart. She wants to be like those "girls" who stand away from the crowd and don't care about what others say or think about them. She's saying that it's alright to "make yourself up" because when you feel good, you can feel more confident and independent and that everyone has different ways to feel more empowered and independent. All girls are different and all have different personalities and different styles. "Most girls" are different and she too wants to be different and strong and independent too. When he said "You're not like most girls" she was thinking; but most girls are strong independent and unique so she does wants to be like them.
I love Hailee because she sings songs with such powerful meanings :-)

In my opinion
I think it’s rude for her to say “most girls” like what about all the other girls? Are they not worth it !? She should said “ all girls” since everyone is independent and strong even though there are so many negativity towards girls/women. For example: body image, the way we dress, comparing ourselves to others, etc.

I think the song most girls is about self empowerment. Hailee Steinfeild most likely meant do what makes you feel beautiful, you look beautiful when you feel beautiful.

She WANTS to be like most girls (all girls) because they are strong, beautiful etc. She says in an interview that we have been accepting that "You're not like most girls" for to long. As if we are better than everyone else, but we are the same. Beautiful and strong. Especially if we work together ! :)

If you see the clip the phrase “most girls” makes a lot more sense. It starts with a boy saying: you are not like most girls.
And then the song begins. It is a pretty common phrase and when you think about it, it makes nog sense because most girls are awesome.
I love the song, I think it is really empowering and the fact that she sings it’s okay to change the body that youcame in is a clear message that it’s okay to feel good when you wear makeup or do what you like. There are a lot people shaming girls who do that and this song is just all girl empowerment and I love it!

The song is about impowerment, obviously. For those of you who are confused about the part about changing yourself, she’s saying that it’s okay to change yourself. She’s saying if you want to get lip injections or wear makeup then go ahead, if that’s what makes you feel empowered, if that’s what makes you happy. This was included because people are really judgmental about girls who change themselves (some of the other interpretaters do this) and that since it’s their body they have the choice to do what they want and you have no right to judge what makes a girl good, you have no right to judge the choices she makes about herself. Thank you for coming to my ted talk

Is this song like encouraging changing your appearance? I’m confused. I would think that embracing yourself the way you are now would be a better message than saying “it’s okay if you want to change the body that you came in” . Can someone explain? Thank you.

I love the first part because you really can connect with it. I cried the first time I heard this song.

I'm honestly very confused. I like that she says most girls are amazing and all, but what about the some girls? Shouldn't they be amazing too?
Just my two cents.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

I think it is a great message that she is saying that girls and women can do anything they want to do. :)

Motivation and we can be who we want to be as long as you feel like a Queen

Why she saying most girls... she should say All Girls cause it's kinda rude to be honest.. like she's saying only "most" girls are strong and beautiful. She should say all cause "most" is disrespectful and hurts.

Initially the words are empowering.
As soon as lyicics say it's/ if okay to change, ruins the song for me.
Latter part of the song is thoughtful. I think this is what the writer meant.
I love anyone releasing positive words, deeds, prayers.
People say, " life is hard" all the time. Well, I say "being a part of this world is hard".
My three teens and I listen. To popular music. Sometimes the words don't mesh with our core values. Sometime we laugh at the lyrics. Mostly, we listen for a story or message. If we dig it, we process/talk about it.
Some songs are so bad they are not worth discussing.
Some songs are not committed to a view.
This song is not committed. It is confusing.

I can't decide whether this is an amazing, empowering song, or your typical song about fitting in. Don't be angry, I'm just stating the two different messages I'm getting. The chorus is empowering because it's telling you to stand up for what you believe in. The problem I have is the verses. While she is supporting "most girls", the "some girls" who are comfortable in their tight clothing and love to live life well that she mentions might not feel as supported because they are portrayed in a more negative light and she wants to be like the most girls she mentions, not them. She also states that most girls are beautiful, smart, and strong. While that is amazing and supports girls, some girls feel like they are not pretty enough or smart enough or strong enough, and feel left out. Even with all that said, I still think that this is a song that speaks up for most girls and gives girls more self confidence. Like I said before, it is empowering and supportive of girls.
