Amy Schumer is like everyone’s fun party sister who drinks too much and makes a bunch of questionable life choices, but is ultimately the best person you know. She’s everything we want to be and a little we don’t, and we just can’t get enough of her. If seeing her just once a week on Inside Amy Schumer isn’t cutting it for you, you’re in luck! Keeping with the current trend of female celebrity autobiographies (which we love, by the way), Amy Schumer has blessed us with a book.
And if anyone was still wondering if Amy Schumer is a goddess, they got their answer over the weekend when she posted the cover for The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. Look at her. Just look at her! So flawless.
From just the cover we can already tell this book is going to be that classic Amy blend of humour, feminist commentary and raw truth. If you can’t tell, we’re pretty excited about the prospects. We have a list of expectations and we’re sure she won’t disappoint. We need us some more of that Schumer madness!
THE TRUTH, NOTHING BUT THE PAINFUL TRUTH
Amy Schumer is nothing if not honest. The way she says exactly what we’re thinking (but would never say ourselves) is uncanny. From how literally everyone feels about working out to the fact that women have bodily functions too (I know, right?) she drops those truth bombs like it’s nobody’s business.
LIFE HACKS WE DIDN’T KNOW WE NEEDED
Amy always seems to whip out the perfect way to solve problems we didn’t even know we had. Remember her brilliant summer beauty hack from the Met Gala? Looking forward to some more of those little nuggets of wisdom.
PAINFULLY EMBARRASSING MOMENTS
Not always the most graceful or socially correct, a huge part of Amy Schumer’s humour is in recounting every painfully awkward moment of her embarrassing encounters. We may be dying from second-hand embarrassment, but we can’t look away. Parts of TGWTLBT center around Schumer’s childhood. That’s sure to be chocked full of hilarity.
FEMINISM AND BODY POSITIVITY
Amy Schumer wouldn’t be Amy Schumer without her constant (and correct) feminist commentary. She tells it like it is and her satire is on point! And if the cover is any indication, she’ll be tackling body positivity in her book as well. Just look at when she talked about being called ‘brave’ for posing nude. That woman is the feminist icon we need.
THAT AMY HUMOUR
You know the stuff. This book looks like it’s going to be the most hilarious read of the summer.
