I decided to stop acting for a few years so that I could graduate high school. I’m so glad that I had the foresight to do that at the time, because I saw a lot of people in Los Angeles whose lives were the film industry—they were brought up in the film industry—and they didn’t really have a proper understanding of how the world worked outside of the film industry. I realized very quickly that’s not what I wanted. My job is to portray real human beings and real human experiences, and if I haven’t had a real human experience myself outside of the film industry, how am I going to be able to do that? So it wasn’t that I disliked L.A., it just didn’t feel like the place for me.
national coming out day is not helpful in any way if you are pushing young queer kids to come out to people theyre not comfortable with. to all the other kids that are not safe to come out:
•coming out is a continuous process. you will never be “done” coming out.
•it is perfectly acceptable to not come out. sexuality is a very private thing. its ok.
•you are not lying to your significant other, others or yourself if you do not come out to every single person in your life.
Absolutely stoked about this announcement. I think everything about this guitar is great, from its street price of $1899 (which is well under what many “professional” instruments cost these days) to the shape, pickup complement, and the fact that Annie Clark and Ernie Ball came together to make a guitar with the female body in mind. Having never been a woman myself, I can’t speak to how comfortable most guitars (designed by men) might be for them, but the note from Annie about there being “room for a breast” is really exciting. Seriously, well done AC and EB! I totally want one. #guitar #ernieball #eb #annieclark #stvincent #design #feminism #feminist #signature #model #minihb #win

It is with pride that I present the St. Vincent Signature @ernieball MusicMan Guitar. I wanted to design a tool that would be ergonomic*, lightweight, and sleek. So excited to be working with Ernie Ball. *There is room for a breast^
