If people never felt the need to express themselves through writing teleplays, scripts or music, or through singing, dancing or acting, we would never have celebrities or talented actors, singers, choreographers, designers, directors, producers or dancers. I wouldn’t have a blog. Self expression is the expression of one’s individuality through creative activities.Some express themselves through music. Others through dancing or art. I express myself best through writing. Others still express themselves through clothing as well as another outlet.
Take one of my favorites, Lady Gaga, for example. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (her birthname) has always expressed herself through music. At age 4 she learned how to play piano by ear. Once she became a teen, she began to express herself through edgy and unique (and very eye-catching) choices in clothing, and soon the phenomenon that is Lady Gaga came to be.
Some may say she takes self expression too far, but there’s really no harm in her fashion, only some distraction from her talent. In the world of entertainment, it’s hard to really come off as obscene in self expression. The stigmas of the everyday world inhibit some forms of self expression, but there’s always opportunity to express yourself in different ways.
