Most Beautiful? SRSLY?

As if we needed another glaring observation that the idea of beauty and the simple minded media are so thoroughly and completely F*d up, People magazine just announced that this…

…represents the worlds most beautiful women. SRSLY?

Uhhhhhhh, okay. I’m curious what the definition of beauty is these days.

Skin that shows no hint of color due to completely stupid and malnourished diet? Check.

Bragging about working out two hours a day to keep that svelt, chick, Somali teen figure? Check.

Being borish and uppity while cramming your stupidity on the rest of us? Check.

It’s what makes life interesting, finding the balance between cigarettes and tofu. (Gwenneth’s quote, not mine.)

Uhhhhhhh, okay.

While she may be a perfectly fine lady in real life (bwahahahhaaa!) she is not beautiful. We’re confusing celebrity with beauty…again.

I understand how her publicist probably paid someone handsomely for the coverage but at some point, the media should have standards and values. Again, bwahahahhaaa!

I’ve always thought those possessing beauty had grace,

and determination,

and unapologetic sass,

with a little bit of fearlessness thrown in,

and an awareness of the world around them,

and always, strength.

But that’s just me.

Celebrity was a long time coming; it will go away. Everything goes away.

About tosabarbell

For training opportunities at tosabarbell, call or text Juli at 320-296-9313. e-mail to At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be. tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned. I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better. Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East. This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.

  1. I like that Carol Burnett quote. Good old Paltrow, she’s a bit of a dick isn’t she–bear in mind, while she was just ‘voted’ most beautiful, she was also just voted most hated celebrity–so you win some, you lose some xx
