ME BY JENNIE GARTH
"Me" by Jennie Garth is an homage to Jennie's beginnings on the iconic television series Beverly Hills, 90210. Jennie played the role of Kelly Taylor in the series and over several seasons 'Kelly' was caught in a love triangle with 'Dylan' & 'Brandon' (ie, actors Luke Perry & Jason Priestly) so inevitably Kelly reaches a critical point where she is forced to choose one man. Kelly's answer, "I Choose Me". Kelly's bold "I choose me" statement became an impactful one for young women and fans of the series as Kelly showed self-respect and power in choosing herself over Brandon and Dylan! Kelly's declaration has continued to resonate with women who watch the series for the first time now and with daughters who are now watching with their 90210-fan-mother's 30 years later. Empowering and aspirational. Helping women remember that choosing themselves is always the best choice, connecting to self-care and self-love. This is the messaging that Jennie wants to continue to send to women and girls.
