What makes a puke-athon

I really hate One Direction's song 'What makes you beautiful'.

It's all poppy and catchy and has these stupid stuttery bits where the word 'eyes' (for example) becomes three or four syllables - and that's part of it, but that's not it.

It's basically about a young woman who seems to have zero self-esteem, and you know, that's what he* likes about her. She won't meet his eyes, she's insecure, she doesn't realise how attractive she is.

He really really likes her appearance - the way she flips her hair - and he wants her desperately. But he's no clue what she's like as a person, as I doubt she can get a sentence out.

If she ever gets a healthy sense of her own identity, I hope she'll dump his shallow arse.

* the protagonist of the song
