Colbie Caillat Snubs Photoshop In Latest Video ‘Try’
Colbie’s new music video for her song “Try” begins with young girls and women dolled up without a hair out of place. As the music video continues, the women remove their hair extensions, makeup and fake eye lashes. Colbie even ditches her makeup and hair extensions over the course of the video!
In the song, Colbie hopes to show that the beauty standards set by today’s society are unrealistic and reminds women that they should stay true to themselves because they are beautiful even without their makeup on. Believe it or not, this is something Colbie has to remind herself of everyday.
“When I see gorgeous models and singers and they look perfect on their album covers, it makes me want to look like that, too, and it makes me feel like if I don’t Photoshop my skin on my album cover, I’m the one who’s going to look a little off and everyone else is going to look perfect,” Colbie said in an interview with Elle. “And that’s what everyone is used to seeing.”
Colbie Caillat: All About Her New Album
On June 9, Colbie released her latest EP titled Gypsy Heart Side A, the first part of her upcoming album, Gypsy Heart. Colbie wrote the album in 2013 only to be told by her record company that she needed a new sound. Gypsy Heart is produced by Babyface and features collaborations with Jason Reeves, Max Martin, Julian Bunetta, and Johan Carlsson.
Colbie told Billboard that the reason she decided to release an EP instead of a full album was because “everyone’s attention spans are very short” and fans can “fall in love” with the first five songs and then download the rest of the album later.
What a great idea! We are so proud of Colbie’s video. She is such an inspiration to women!
