Equality charity Stonewall polled more than 1,000 online supporters to find out which song they thought had the most empowering message. Aguilera's 2003 hit achieved 33% of the vote, ahead of the 25% achieved by Boyzone's 'Better' in second place.The song was written by Linda Perry and I can definitely see what people like about it. I feel like a message that "I'm beautiful no matter what they say" is a lot more empowering than "God makes no mistakes." Then again, I'm totally biased.
The Irish group became the first boyband to feature a gay couple in a music video, when the late Stephen Gateley was shown with a male partner. Lady GaGa's 'Born This Way' placed third with 17%, followed by Gossip's 'Standing In The Way Of Control' and Katy Perry's 'Firework' in fourth and fifth position respectively.
Responding to the news, Christina Aguilera said: "I'm delighted to have been voted the most inspirational pop act by Stonewall's supporters - my gay fan base is so important to me and this continues my special relationship with them."
The video is cheesy, but totally awesome. It's like what Katy Perry's "Firework" video was trying to do.
