People Magazine voted Beyonce the world’s most beautiful woman. Seriously, who is in charge of coming up with these most beautiful/sexiest/handsome man/woman/couple/baby in the world? How is it that the competitors are mostly always American celebrities? What about the rest of the world? How about the girl next door? Did they check the jungles of Africa? Last time I checked there were some ebony beauties back there with skin as smooth as silk, no makeup, no weave and no enhancements. They worked with their kids attached to them, now that’s beauty.
Now on the topic of beautiful, have they met my wife? I think, and not because she’s my wife, that she is not only the world’s most beautiful woman but also person/wife/mother/daughter/friend. Beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder and to me it is more than just a pretty face. (My wife does have a pretty face too). Based on looks, I see way more beautiful females here in my city on almost a daily basis. (Not to take anything away from Beyonce as she is eye candy material herself).
Beautiful to me is more than just skin deep. It is your character, your moral values, the way you treat those around you, How you are as a mother, friend, daughter, son, wife, the way you face adversity. Possessing a good heart. Independent and not relying on the nanny to take care of your children. Classy. These are some of the things that make a woman beautiful.
(I would also question the credibility of the voting as J-Lo was also once voted as the world’s most beautiful woman. Yep, that J-Lo).
It is time to dispense with the misleading monikers like most beautiful woman in the world. Celebrities have got enough fame as it is. Put the average Jane or Joe in the spotlight instead. There is actually life outside of Hollywood. So maybe we can say Beyonce is the most beautiful woman in her family? Ok, maybe Hollywood then? But that’s as far as I will go. Except if it’s my wife because she really is the most beautiful woman in the world.
Just my take, congrats to Beyonce.
