Anthony just did a live Instagram video of him and his friend William Wells working on/recording a song, and it was insanely beautiful. Anthony was in the sound booth and recorded it all in one take, and his vocals were just insane. It was very simple, with just a few lyrics, but also gorgeously sung and incredibly calming. William was accompanying him on the keyboard. Some of the lyrics included something like “let the light in; let it through” (repeated multiple times). Anthony said they weren’t sure what it was about yet, but called it a cry for humanity.
They switched over to Williams Instagram for a live video after a while, and there they played snippets of two more songs they had been working on. The first was more upbeat, and included a lyric that was something like “meet me halfway with wings wide open”, and sounded like the chorus or maybe the bridge. The second was a rap song, and started with Anthony talking about his experience with a vocal coach who at one point did not think he would have ended up where he is now, and then segued into him rapping along that theme.
They talked about Jazzy at multiple points, but it wasn’t clear if she was there or not. They seemed very excited to keep working on songs for the album, and were still working on songs when they turned the live stream off.

Backstage at Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2017

After the departure of Peter Copping from the brand, and before Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of Monse takeover next year, the studio team of 10 designers, there was much expectation for what the future of the brand would look like. Although much of Oscar’s finesse and pure magic was sorely missing from the pieces, the dresses were still gorgeously draped and styled, with the standout for me being the plume dresses. 

Day 6 - Write Your Feelings for Someone

Your Love is Ten Feet Tall

“What if the love of your life is a short man?”
The 5'6 imp asked of me
in a feeble attempt to change my position
of no niggas under six feet
and I thought to myself
“He is.”

I was referring to my little cousin Jonathan
who is now 18
who I have called the love of my life
since he was growing in my cousin Sonya’s womb.
A child I personally named and have loved wholly
since before he was even he.

I thought of that question again
but this time my mind went to you.
Jonathan is a short man and the love of my life
but there’s another short man I will love life-long too.

I’m talking about you, King
of words and crochet and hearts.
You who is in love with this world
but don’t want his world in love with him back.
I love you.
You have saved me accidentally on purpose
over 400 times and counting.

I did not tattoo your name across my chest
but your words lie not too far above it.
Your assurance became my life mantra
etched into my memory and skin
Forever.

You are more than a friend.
Much more than a mentor.
A riddle I’ll never figure out
but will guess at continually.
A never-ending word search,
the song you can’t seem to get tired of.
You are goodness personified.

Everyone who loves me should love you too.
They don’t know how you’ve helped me be better.
How you inspire me to try
and not quit on myself.
I’d sing about you if I could
carry a tune or get near the right key.
Instead, I just tell you I love you at odds hour on twitter,
in hopes that you know how much I mean it.

Yes, the love of my life is a short man.
And the only man to ever reach me fully
ain’t even as tall as me but I’m not changing
my position of only dating tall niggas
unless you’re ready to compete with the
baby turned man I helped get here or the
friend turned personal hero I’m not
sure I would still be here without.
