“The nail technician pushes my cuticles back, turns my hand over, stretches the skin on my palm and says: “I see your daughters and their daughters.” That night, in a dream, the first girl emerges from a slit in my stomach. The scar heals into a smile. The man I love pulls the stitches out with his fingernails. We leave black sutures curling on the side of the bath. I wake as the second girl crawls headfirst up my throat. A flower blossoming out of the hole in my face.”

How do you repeatedly and consistently set the bar for the music industry higher and higher, so high that literally EVERY time you release a body of work, the only thing that it’s comparable to is your other bodies of work. So high that most of your peers even the most praised, the elites of the music industry consider you a standard that they could not possibly live up to, something that they can only idolize so much to say that you are the light of the music industry aaaaaaand still not be recognized for your work/talent as the best by the academy?
Of all the fashion trail blazers, Audrey Hepburn arguably had the greatest impact. Hepburn, solidified her place in the fashion and film history with her iconic look in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, sporting a black cocktail dress, oversized sunglasses, and elegant pearls. Before that, Hepburn prompted the beatnik look in Funny Face. The actress launched black turtlenecks and black cigarette pants into the public eye. This look would greatly influence the beat generation throughout the fifties and the sixties. Even today, people still sport the beatnik ensembles, although that’s usually because they’re trying to be ironic.
