“Life is too short not to dance around in your underwear, right?”
Those are the wise words of actor/singer Ben Yahr, who is proving you don’t have to be ripped from the pages of Men’s Health to love the body you’ve got.
In his new music video for “Shape of Me,” Yahr recreates iconic photos of celebrity skin, from Justin Bieber‘s Calvin Klein shoot to Adam Levine’s nude charity photo for prostate and testicular cancer awareness. “Fit me in the puzzle, ‘cause I am the perfect piece,” he sings. “I’ll show off my body, ‘cause I love the shape of me.”
Yahr hopes his self-love anthem will help shake queer people out of the idea that you have to look a certain way to embrace yourself.
“We are conditioned from such a young age by the media that only certain shapes should be celebrated, which is why I decided to use iconic photos of celebrities,” he told HuffPo. “If there was a brochure of our community, would all of us be included?”
