Who Says Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I wouldn't want to be anybody else
You made me insecure
Told me I wasn't good enough
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough
I'm sure you got some things
You'd like to change about yourself
But when...

    i think we really need advice, from another person . but maybe they can say we are ugly , like so fat or so slim :( . i thing that is no bad words, because they say what we are. in this song we can should know we are beauty, we are diffrent,we are perfect.

    Mom always tells me beauty comes from how you treat people and this song reminds me of everything she tells me also I have had a lot of people tell me I'm ugly so I know how it fells for people to call you ugly but I know i'm not alone.

    I love this song. The song says that your haters are true lovers. Because they say that thing which you have. If they say you're not beautiful that means you're it means they are jealous to you . So believe in yourself , love yourself . Don't listen to the world
    "The people would say something .their job itself is to speak".

    I always thought it was about feeling good in your own skin. Some lines make it seem like it's about looking like a "beauty queen" or a "movie star" but it's about being happy as acewoting your flaws. That's nothing g wrong with wanting to be beautiful, but just remember not to change yourself for someone else. Whoever says you're not pretty is jealous of you.

    Who says was released around the time demi went to rehab for anorexia. Selena and demi were alwaus very close so I think it is possible that Selena wrte this song to show support to her friend. It is about not letring what people sya make you think less of yourself.

    Who says is about not what they think or say about you.Noone is go be blamed upon or disgraced.Everyone has their own rights.People may say things about you that are untrue but dont care.Everyone is beautiful and special
    Noone is to be neglected.Even you are beautiful and special.Hope you agree.

    Like most music in the industry, this song has a mixed message. On the surface this song talks about believing in yourself. As much as I would like to think shes singing about inner beauty, theres parts throughout the song that refer back to aesthetic's. The way something looks on the outside, or it's appearance. She even compares her beauty to a work of art. Which artwork is only aesthetically pleasing to the eye. More obvious parts are when she's saying who says ur not pretty, beautiful and perfect. She then says im just beautiful me. This backs up what I've been saying about her focusing on the appearance of something rather then the inner beauty. Someone who has true inner beauty would be humble enough to not make these claims about themselves. This song comes across as being self empowering but it also is just as much about being vain,egocentric, conceited, immodest, superior, and arrogant. look up the definition for these words, they all point at being one thing...too confident. Being confident is one thing but being overly confident is another. Haven't we all been around someone who is overly confident? ask your self if that was someone you enjoyed being around? One last thing, even though Selena said what the song means to her doesn't mean that was the intention or purpose of the song when it was written. Selena did not write this song, so i can't fault her for the lyrics but yet she is the one singing them. So she is the one spreading this message to her young fans. Who more than any age group will be effected by this very mixed message.

    The song says it itself. Who says you cant do the impossible? Believe in yourself. People judge they always do.

    “I feel like girls my age tend to question themselves a lot, they tend to try to dress and try to be what they feel other people want to be. Everyone wants to follow the trend and what’s in and what’s cool. At the end of the day when you strip all that down, are you really proud of yourself are you really comfortable in your skin? That’s what the song represents for me.” - Selena Gomez

    I love this song it always makes me feel happy no matter what's happeing in life and think that's really the point. It's jsut to make people feel happy about themselves and the choices and paths they take in their own life and teaches them to stand up for what they want even if it is you against your whole world.

    We were all perfectly and wonderfully made.Just be yourself and don't try to be like anybody else. We were all born to stand out. Embrace who you are.You are beautiful the way you are.

    Who Says by Selena Gomez is a song saying who no matter who hurts you, or who tells you you cant, is wrong. It doesn't mattter what people think of you. It matters what you think of yourself as a person. You can do whatever you dream of. Dream can become reality.
