in her 90's

8

So back in the day, I was OBSESSED with Zora. Actually, I didn’t like her in the 90′s as a child. I knew about her, but she was juuuust a little beyond what my little baby head could wrap around then.

I liked the Snice Girls. I wanted to be Baby Snice. Cute and sweet and dressed in pink. But because of my hair, I had to be Scary Snice in my middle school friend group of pale, straight haired little girls that collectively thought that you had to play the person that you resembled the most. My mom is black, so Boom! I had to be the only black girl in the group. I was pissed. She was my least favorite. I hated animal print!

Even though it was embarrassing to still like them past a certain age, and they ended up breaking up after their second album, I still kept their spirit alive with the big platform sneakers that they were known to wear. BUT I wore them “ironically”( Biiiitch I was niceing up my life all damn daaaay!).

Anyway, Zora. Who is Zora? Well you might remember her quirking around in her music videos in the 90′s. She was queen of strange visuals and innovative music…I still worship her to this day. The bantu knots hair culture appropriation thing aside, she was my idol! I wanted to be just like her. But, alas I have no musical talent. So I just used to go on her website on the forums and chat rooms and muck around looking at photos and remixes. Making friends and enemies with fellow Zora heads.

I started talking to more and more people on the official chat room because rumor was that she would actually come into the chat room from time to time. So I poured my free time into being in there! I got to know so many cool people with great music tastes, much better than mine at the time. Most of them were in their 20′s or 30′s so I said I was 20 something too…I mean in those days most kids did that sort of thing, right? And I felt at like, 16 and 17 I was BASICALLY in my 20′s…RIGHT?

It’s here that I met Bret! The coolest guy I’d met up to that point in my life. Hmm, maybe I’ll end this one here and pick up here in the next one.

seto’s personal trashy update

my last day of vacation is tomorrow, these 3 weeks i’ve been animating for the islands MAP, watched hours and hours of gameplays, read the entire snk manga, and watched anime

i’m a productive child

Do you guys wanna hear a weird story?

So the other day I played Kesha’s new song for my mom and she told me about the time she used to know Dr. Luke and how iconique Kesha’s new song actually is.

Let’s take a trip back to 2002 when American Idol first came out. I guess my mom used to run one of the online music boards for American Idol and ended up meeting Brenda Harvey-Richie on there, aka the woman who beat Lionel Richie with a bat back when she caught him cheating on her in the 90’s, aka Nicole Richie’s adopted mother, and the two of them became really good friends. They would travel back and forth between Texas (where she lived) and Los Angeles (where my mom lived) to kick it with each other and Brenda introduced my mom to American Idol season 1 winner, Kelly Clarkson, who later signed a contract with and wrote “Since You Been Gone” with Dr. Luke and Clive Davis.
So I guess Dr. Luke has always been a really big headed piece of shit and would refuse to let Kelly Clarkson collaborate with him on writing any music (rumor has it she wasn’t a very good writer anyway, but that’s beside the point) and he ABSOLUTELY prided himself on writing those revenge power anthems, aka the same style of writing as Kesha’s new song.
I guess he was just a really petty dude (my mom described him as a ‘piece of work’) and always wanted to have total control over the female pop stars that he was working with and would rarely allow them to make their own decisions (hence Kesha’s party girl persona despite her multiple protests to be presented as something else). And would constantly tell his artists that he was the MASTER at writing revenge power anthems and they could never live up to his level of skill.

Anyway, my mom did some research the other day and found that, while Kesha is still unfortunately signed to Dr. Luke’s label, he wasn’t allowed to work with her on the new record, but being the asshole that he is, he felt she was about to ruin her career anyway because, according to him, he’s he ONLY person in Hollywood who can write a great revenge power anthem.

But clearly this dude’s ego has been shot down a couple of notches because Kesha’s new song is number 1 across the charts. And I just wanted y'all to know that she really Did That. She’s showing her rapist who’s fucking who and kickin’ ass in her recovery while doing it. And I just think that’s really inspirational, and everyone should hear this because it’s inspiring.

Kesha really is That Bitch!
