WOMAN SHAVES LEGS FOR FIRST TIME

The internet was recently awash with news that a woman shaved her legs for the first time…

‘SM: It seems like people have a lot to say about your body hair.

G: I just started shaving for the first time this year. I am rebelling against my previous body hair, because now people get mad when I shave my legs. So I’m like, “I have the right to shave my legs.” I think people policing my body either way is bizarre.

SM: For the shoot you and I did, they didn’t know if they should retouch some of your hair, and I said, “No way.”

G: There is still an intense vibe in society about body hair. No one I’ve ever dated has mentioned it. I didn’t even think it was weird until I started doing fashion and people would be putting concealer over my legs.’

Whilst people might have a lot to say about Grimes‘s body hair the original article says very little about it despite what it’s headline might suggest. Curiously though it’s this part of her discussion with Stella McCartney that has been picked up by other media outlets.
