Hey Tay. What Up Girl? (JK)
Even though I don’t like you very much or care about your life, I’m pretty sure I want you to find happiness/love. Maybe it’s because I’m such a good person or maybe it’s because I believe there is still enough light in the world to turn a black heart good. Who knows.
Okay, so you have this late night stalker who swam to your beach estate (that you bought when you wanted to be a Kennedy). And you’re kind of freaked out. And you’re probably feeling vulnerable. And you’re definitely feeling dumb for buying that house in the first place.
I get it. I’ve been there.
But before you judge, ask yourself this: would you swim across a lake in the middle of the night, break onto private property, risk jail time, public embarrassment, and possibly death for someone you’ve never met but were totally obsessed with and thought you might one day write a song about? If the answer is yes (and we all know it is), then I’ve seen enough spiritualist’s to know that this is the universe reaching out to you.
Congratulations Taylor! I think you’ve found Mr. Swift.
I’m considering a career in rapping. Chic or not chic?
Not chic. BUT…let’s think about this for a sec.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but there’s never really been a chic rapper. Rapping, by nature isn’t so chic. This doesn’t mean it’s not worth my attention, but chic is never the word I would use to describe hip-hop culture. Kanye tries to be chic, Jay-Z also tries, and lord know this bitch is trying to do something, but I don’t think that rapping is about being chic, nor should it be.
This weekend, I was in DC for a day because my friend throws this music festival down there every year and he wanted me to come to make it cooler so I obliged. While shoulder-dancing to Kendrick Lamar’s performance, I wondered whether or not I would consider him to be chic. Then I tried to put myself in his position. Could I be a rapper? Should I be a rapper? I tried to imagine my hip hop looks, my earring story, my sneaker game. What does ‘Babe Walker, Rapstress’ look like? She’s not chic, I’ll tell you that much. But is she still kind of amazing?
Then I hit the blunt that was being passed around my group of friends. Black out.
