Songfacts®:

  • This song delivers the same message of empowerment and inner beauty as TLC's 1999 hit tune, "Unpretty." TLC's Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas told The Sun:

    "You can't make enough of those kind of songs, especially today with social media. There's cyberbullies going crazy on people and unfortunately a lot of people are affected. People are committing suicide. A song like that is really important to let people know they're not alone.

    With Perfect Girls the message is you are beautiful already and no one is perfect. We all have flaws. We are all ageing and if you really take care of yourself, you can age gracefully.

    I still get bullied to this day on social media. I have to block people all the time. Dealing with trolls is hard, but you just have to find that inner strength and know you're not the only person that is being bullied. You have to remember these are sad people hiding behind a device. They just need a hug.

    When we were called feminists, we were like, 'No, no we are just being us'. But as we got older we definitely embraced it. We stand up for all women. C'mon, we bring babies into the world. Women are the damn jam."
