“But what I really truly hope is for you to always remember this time in our lives together, the summers and the winters that you came to all of our balls. And you painted each other’s faces and pinned flowers in each other’s hair. You put rhinestones on all your problems and you talked about love & art & how we would always be together and always be okay because we have each other. We belong together. ARTPOP. Thank you for never letting me feel alone. When you leave tonight remember to live off of your own authenticity you need nothing else.”
