I wouldn't wanna be anybody else.
Hey!
You made me insecure,
Told me I wasn't good enough.
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough.
I'm sure you got some things
You'd like to change about yourself.
But when it comes to me,
I wouldn't wanna be anybody else.

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na
I'm no beauty queen.
I'm just beautiful me
.

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na

You've got every right
To a beautiful life.
C'mon on!

Who says?
Who says you're not perfect?
Who says you're not worth it?
Who says you're the only one that's hurting?
Trust me,
That's the price of beauty.
Who says you're not pretty?
Who says you're not beautiful?
Who says?

It's such a funny thing
How nothing's funny when it's you.
You tell 'em what you mean,
But they keep whiting out the truth.
It's like a work of art
That never gets to see the light.
Keep you beneath the stars,
Won't let you touch the sky.

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na

I'm no beauty queen.
I'm just beautiful me.

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na

You've got every right
To a beautiful life.
C'mon on!

Who says?
Who says you're not perfect?
Who says you're not worth it?
Who says you're the only one that's hurting?
Trust me,
That's the price of beauty.
Who says you're not pretty?
Who says you're not beautiful?
Who says?

Who says you're not star potential?
Who says you're not presidential?
Who says you can't be in movies?
Listen to me, listen to me.
Who says you don't pass the test?
Who says you can't be the best?
Who said?
Who said?
Won't you tell me who said that?
Yeah, oh
Who said?

Who says?
Who says you're not perfect?
Who says you're not worth it?
Who says you're the only one that's hurting?
Trust me,
That's the price of beauty.
Who says you're not pretty?
Who says you're not beautiful?
Who says?

Who says?
Who says you're not perfect?
Who says you're not worth it?
Who says you're the only one that's hurting?
Trust me,
That's the price of beauty.
Who says you're not pretty?
Who says your not beautiful?
Who says?

    Actually "cici-music-lover", this is "Who Says" by Selena Gomez. I think you're talking about someone else. Anyways, I love this song. It's about not letting someone tell you who you are not. Plus people can make you not "self-confident" and make you feel down in the dumps. Well, that ain't true. Life may be hard but you gotta survive 'cause life is not perfect but don't give up on anything you've worked so hard for. I go to high school and it's hard but I still get through the day 'cause I say to myself, "I will make it through the day!" instead of being a pessimistic and sayin', "Oh this day sucks, I'll never get through it!" because that ain't good, that's bad talkin'.

    This song is not to push others around. Not to bully people. No one is perfect. Everyone has their own beauty inside. It teaches you to say who says that you are perfect. Everybody is pretty. Do not make fun of people. Like for people that have diseases or a sin drum. You can sometimes learn something from them. Everyone is bad at something it could be reading writing mathematics speaking another language. It is hard 2 do the things you are bad at. Selena teaches you that who are you to say you are perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. Nobody is perfect.

    This song means allot. Allot of girls daydream, your with your crush dancing he is your prince and your his princess everday you see him in your dreams and you always think about him. Until one day he ask's the hottest girl out! Your wearing glasses and she is wearing sun glasses. You are wearing no makeup and she is wearing allot of makeup. She has straight eye lashes that are the longest ones you ever seen but yours are the worst. She wears dresses or the cutest cloth's ever but you just wear skinny jeans with a shirt. Girls! You have to suffer to get what you want and its your life and your choice and its not always about beauty. You have to have a heart break for good things could come back to you and you have to suffer. : D

    This song actually has a message that I want cemented into my brain, unlike most music out today. It makes me feel like I am the perfect version of myself, and everyone else is perfect in their way too! It brings up memories of how little comments from people have put me down in the past, and this song blows those comments to bits. When it comes to me, I wouldn't want to be anyone else but who I am :) Thank you Sel for singing this song! You're a really sweet girl!

    This song is about no one is perfect but you can be perfect in your own way, and to be yourself and don't let anyone bring you down. It also talks about following your dreams and just doing your best through everything. She is saying to have a good self-image. This song is very meaningful and I love it but I'm not that big of a Selena Gomez fan though :).
