Victoria’s Secret

We first listened to “Victoria’s Secret” – a new single by Jax a couple weeks back and have listened to it a lot since. Few singles have inspired as much deep conversation in our household as this one. Here are the lyrics.


God I wish somebody would have told me
When I was younger that all bodies aren’t the same
Photoshop itty-bitty models on magazine covers
Told me I was overweight
I stopped eating, what a bummer
Can’t have carbs and a hot girl summer
If I could go back and tell myself
When I was younger, I’d say, psst

I know Victoria’s secret
And girl you wouldn’t believe
She’s an old man who lives in Ohio
Making money off of girls like me
Cashing in on body issues
Selling skin and bones with big boobs
I know Victoria’s secret
She was made up by a dude (dude)
Victoria was made up by a dude (dude)
Victoria was made up by a dude

I wish somebody would’ve told me that thighs of thunder
Meant normal human thighs
The fucking pressure I was under
To lose my appetite
And fight the cellulite
With hunger games like every night
If I could go back and tell myself
When I was younger, I’d say, hey dummy

I know Victoria’s secret
And girl you wouldn’t believe
She’s an old man who lives in Ohio
Making money off of girls like me
Cashing in on body issues
Selling skin and bones with big boobs
I know Victoria’s secret
She was made up by a dude (dude)


Thanks to this, our 6 year old will likely think twice before falling prey to body shaming.

I’m grateful to Jax for sharing this with the world. We need more songs like this.
