"Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)" by Mika

Is Mika the New (and Improved) Sir Mix-a-Lot?

Back in the '90s, Sir Mix-a-Lot sang the praises of ladies with big butts and "rump 'o smooth skin." His message countered the prevailing notions of beauty — hallelujah! — but his overtly sexual lyrics sang a tune of objectification. Now enter Mika. He's the British heartthrob who released a catchy anthem last year to celebrate the beauty of big women. He's not only complimentary, but respectful and adorable. It takes a big man to pull all this off. Love him!

OMG! I love Mika. I spent 6 months in Italy last year listening to his song on the radio. (Relax is my fav) My friends saw him in concert in Milan which was very 'sexual' for super fun and entertaining. He rocks!

I've loved this song from the first time I heard it last summer. Between the great beat and the positive message I was surprised it only achieved a cult-like popularity.

If Mika likes the big girls, he should move to where I live in Kansas. They're all over the place here.
