It shows is Yahoo Life’s body image series, exploring the journeys of influential and inspiring personalities as they explore what body awareness, body neutrality and self-love means to them.

When you see pop singer-songwriter Maisie Peters on stage, you’d think she’s never felt less confident in her life.

But the 22-year-old English artist – who recently opened Ed Sheeran’s stadium tour – knows what it’s like to feel insecure in your own skin. Additionally, She’s Not Afraid to Own It: The lead single from her second album The good witch – which came out in June 2023 and has topped the UK charts ever since – is a track called Body Better. In the song, Peters wonders if her ex’s new girlfriend has a “better body than mine” – otherwise what would be the reason for their breakup?

“It was relevant to how I felt writing the album and writing the song,” she tells Yahoo Life. “I kept the chorus in my notes for a while. It wasn’t difficult to write it…I was with people I really loved and with whom I had spoken often about the situation. It felt like something I wanted to say and put on paper.

in a (n essay for Glamor UKPeters called her ex’s new girlfriend a “bat I could hit myself with,” as she wasn’t the target of the singer’s anger as much as Peters’ own insecurities.

But while Peters isn’t afraid to be vulnerable, she’s also not afraid to be unabashedly confident. Take her song “Blonde,” a single she released between her 2021 album You signed up for it And The good witchin which she sings, “I’m going to Gwen Stefani, I’m going to Courtney Love/ I’ll beat your league/ I’ll make your friends go, ‘Man, you screwed that up’/ And I would have to do that.” agree.” The song came out around the time Peters, a natural brunette, was dying her hair platinum.

“It happened coincidentally at a time when my life was changing,” Peters says of hair color. “Going blonde was a very different time in my life in terms of what I did and who I became. I like being blonde. That brings with it self-confidence. Maybe I’ll have more fun – I guess we’ll see. However, I’ve been missing being a brunette lately. My hair has a straw like consistency and I miss the days when it was a little softer. Maybe someday I’ll go back to my natural color.

Peters is also aware of the “female desire for style reinvention,” which isn’t necessarily always a personal preference.

“I always try to reuse and re-wear things. That’s realistic and the most sustainable, and it’s the example I want to set,” she says. “I have a lot of fans who don’t buy a new outfit for every show they see me at, so I won’t wear a new outfit either.”
