EG Daily on how her empowering music video 'So Pretty' will help people look within and overcome self-objectivity
In her song 'So Pretty', Daily shares an emotional message that people should never judge someone's true colors and give superficial appreciation based only on how they look
Elizabeth Ann Guttman, famously known as EG Daily, is an American actress, voice actress and singer who is well-known for her voiceover as Tommy Pickles in the Nickelodeon series 'Rugrats', its spin-off 'All Grown Up!' and in the 'Rugrats' film series. Apart from that she also provided the voice of Buttercup in Cartoon Network's 'The Powerpuff Girls' and the pig in the live-action feature film 'Babe: Pig in the City.'
Daily is also known for her roles in films such as 'Valley Girl', 'Dogfight', 'No Small Affair', 'Fandango', 'Streets of Fire', 'The Devil's Rejects', 'My Sister's Keeper', and most famously 'Pee-wee's Big Adventure'.
In an interview with Meaww, she reveals more about what inspired her to create a music video with a powerful message to Hollywood and the world, and how everyone should be treated with respect and accepted for who they, not what they look like.
In her song 'So Pretty', Daily shares an emotional message that people should never judge someone's true colors and give superficial appreciation based only on how they look. Her video delivers a message that clothes, shoes, hair, makeup, body parts and plastic surgery should be the very last things that people measure and judge. When asked what inspired her to create such an empowering video she reveals that the self-objectifying that we see around us is the main reason behind the video and song.
"Timing-wise right now this message is so important because there is so much self-objectifying these days. Every photo you see is mostly selfies and filters that it is hard to compete with a filtered photo of yourself when you're a real person. So what happens when you meet a person in real life, it is hard to feel good. Because in the filters there are so many things you can alter yourself into that is not you," the singer reveals.
Talking about her 'So Pretty' movement, she says that it is an inside job. "It is more about what kind of person you are and how you need to take care of your inside. Make sure you feel good and empowered about yourself. It is a movement about focusing and making people understand that beauty is an inside job and when you succeed in that, is when you realize that you feel pretty inside and out," Daily adds.
When asked about her collaboration with her daughters Tyson and Hunter Daily and if in future we will get to see any more songs, she says, "I am sure we will. Both my daughters are amazing singers, incredible musicians and songwriters. We will surely be doing stuff together again. But, right now I just wanted to include them in the video and they come towards the end. They are a big part of the message being millennials. It was overall amazing to have them in the video because this is the same message we follow even at home. No matter how much makeup we apply or how skinny we look, it doesn't matter. All that matter is what is going on inside." Following that, she talks about how the song and the video is a global message, "This message is for all ages, I wish I could have had more people of different age groups. But we were limited."

She follows by saying how 'So Pretty' is not just one song, but three versions that can stand out by themselves. "There are three different versions of 'So Pretty' and they are very different from one another, more or less they are like three different songs. They are all launching on November 2. It is a ballad version which has a totally different feeling." Talking about her future projects, she adds, "Apart from that I am composing a lot with my partner. There will be other songs as well. But currently with the timing and there is so much separation between people today in our own land, there is so much disconnect, we have to work on being the most beautiful people inside."
Through her song and video, Daily wishes to share the message that one must really look inside others and appreciate them for what they are.
"When you see a person and you connect with them, appreciate the beauty they have. Everyone has an amazing soul. That is the message. Everywhere you go, every day you see an amazing soul in every man, woman, child, and I think at times we get busy with our day to day life, we stop seeing one another. And I think when you see someone for what they are inside is when the real beauty comes out," the voiceover artiste adds.
For her song 'So Pretty', Daily reveals that she has not gone to any Label and instead, recorded it as an independent artiste. And since she has done this all by herself, she has created a Kickstarter campaign to let her fans be a part of it because it shares a social message. "I have been doing it myself and I feel the product will be better if I let everyone including my fans be a part of the project. So it is not just my project, it is our project, our movement and our awareness to the planet."
She reveals that with the money she gains from her Kickstarter account she will use it to market the song and make it global so people all over the world will be inspired by the message she shares.

Apart from that, she unveils that there will also be a concert. "I feel like a lot of people are going to be a part of the concert that we are planning and the people who join Kickstarter will be called for a private Q and A with me and have a meal with me. It seems more fun to do things this way, and have my own tribe and who better to have as my tribe than my own fans," the 'Pee-wee's Big Adventure' actress reveals. "So that is why instead of a label we opened up a Kickstarter. I have incredible people with me. The extra money we get will be given to a charity that works for the same cause. I just want to give back whatever I get and share everything with people I reach.
