Charli XCX helped Cartoon Network launch the return of beloved cartoon The Powerpuff Girls.
Ending a decade ago, the show returns to the channel with an all-new theme song by Tacocat. Charli XCX took to the streets of London to declare her love of the girls and their adventures.
“I remember when I was 15 and having all kinds of crazy things going on in my brain. As a young girl, that age can be a time of self-doubt, a time where you let your insecurities show, a time where you’re basically just a bit unsure,” she began.
“Strong role models are super important during those phases of anyone’s life. The Powerpuff Girls are 100% the strongest and coolest kind of role models to have around. The show flips gender stereotypes on its head and is accessible and fun for kids but also for people my age.
Stating she used to love the show when she was younger, Charli XCX said she’s “even more obsessed” with it now. “I see myself in the characters for sure! As all girls should. Strong, fierce, sassy and cute are all the best ways to be, and we all have that deep down inside us even if we don’t quite realise it yet.”
The Powerpuff Girls returns to Cartoon Network tonight (April 25) at 6:15pm and will continue to air every weekday night. Take a look at what Charli XCX had to say about modern girlhood and the show’s return below.
