Loving Yourself - Top Five of 2011

I was going to create this post for tomorrow but I just couldn't resist posting it!  Besides, I have a busy day away from the computer tomorrow so I will let you have it now.  Bad Jessa always ruining surprises!  ♥

Back in 2010 Cosmo released a list of the top ten songs that encourage us to love ourselves.  I was hoping they would re-vamp this list based off of all the inspiring music released in 2011.  Since it has yet to happen I decided to make my own list!

1.  Firework - By Katy Perry

Currently ranked number three on the Billboard Hot 100 of 2011 list this song is said to be considered, by Katy, the most important song of her album Teenage Dream.

2.  Bruno Mars - Just The Way Your Are

Ranked number thirteen on the list, Just The Way You Are, is Bruno's lead single from his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans.

3.  Lady Gaga - Born This Way

Gaga wrote and produced Born This Way as her Freedom Song.  It currently hits the list at eighteen. 

4.  Pink - Perfect

Although this song was considered controversial it made it to number two on the Billboard 100 and currently ranks number nineteen for the year.

5.  Selena Gomez - Who Says

Down the list of the top 100 coming in at seventy eight is Who Says.  Selena intentions with this song were to inspire people to stand up against the "Haters" and cyberbullies and though it is last on our list it's message is at the top.

So there you have it... the top five self loving songs on the Billboards Hot 100 of 2011.  I have added a playlist with these and other encouraging tunes at the bottom of the blog.  So if you need a boost of self love press play and rock out.

So 'Tessas is there any songs you'd like to add to the list?  Old or new?  Let me know & help the list grow!

Love & Lollies...
