Friday Dance Party! I DON'T CARE: 9 Confidence-Boosting Tracks For When You Don't Wanna Give AF
Did you wake up at any point this week and think "I DON'T CARE, f*** your ideals, f*** it all, I am awesome and nobody can take that away from me?" (If not, why not? You should think that every day, really!)
This week's Friday Let-Off-Steam Dance Party is all about having confidence, being who you were born to be, saying "So What?" and laughing in the face of anyone silly enough to try and cap your shine.
Let's start mellow this week to ease you into the weekend. Here's India Arie with a 2001 beauty...

Because you are a Queen, you're probably too bootylicious for some people, right? Well good, because your jelly isn't for them anyway.
Bootylicious - Destiny's Child
I hope you are proudly shaking it around the living room right about now. Because as Demi says in this next track, what's wrong with being confident? (NOTHING).
Confident - Demi Lovato
Sometimes it feels REALLY good to be able to just say 'I don't care'. If you can laugh about it, even better! This joyous song from Cheryl expresses it all.
I Don't Care - Cheryl
Why don't you care what people have to say? Because baby, you were born this way. Now strip to your goddamn knick-knacks and bra a la Gaga and go wild.
Born This Way - Lady Gaga
Mans shirts! Short skirts! DO WHATEVER YOU WANT! You don't care, you were born bootylicious!
Man! I Feel Like A Woman - Shania Twain
Besides, everyone else is a tool, so...
So What - P!nk
Alright, let's slip back to the '80s now (also featured in the Pitch Perfect riff-off - classic!)
Hit Me With Your Best Shot - Pat Benatar
Okay, calm down for crying out loud, you'll wake the neighbours. Finally, let's remember why we're here. Because you might need a fight song to get you through the rest of Friday as a Strong Woman. Well here you go, loves.
Fight Song - Rachel Platten
