Lana Del Rey - West Coast
Andre 3000 - She Lives in My Lap Feat. Rosario Dawson
That Outkast performance at Coachella was one of the most disappointing things I’ve ever seen.
What a disgracefully flat crowd that didn’t really understand what/who they were listening to.
I feel bad for 3000. He looked uncomfortable to begin the show. But by the end of the performance, he seemed annoyed and disinterested with the thought like, “oh yeah, this is why I stepped away from music.”
When he asked the crowd, “how many bitches and how many hoes are here?” I don’t think he was just messing around. I felt that he had already lost respect and interest in the audience. He had his back turned to them for “Hey Ya” singing the song with no real passion or energy; in a sense giving them no satisfaction in the only song they probably were expecting to hear.
Big Boi did his best to salvage the crowd and get 3000 to come along, but I just feel like songs like “Elevators” and “Gasoline Dreams” are beyond that audience. They didn’t understand the darkness, the ambiance, and mystique of those songs. There’s a commentary in the lyrics that just does not connect with that sort of “party” crowd.
The crickets when Janelle Monae came out? On and on and on. Garbage crowd.
Beyonce - Love On Top
now everybody asks me why I’m smiling from ear2ear.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found that trimming the fat in my life is probably the best thing I can do for myself.
Some interests, people, and environments that used to fit into my life just don’t anymore. As much as we grow up, we grow out of certain things and grow into others.
So my advice is don’t hang on to the things that used to be meaningful. Tuck them away and be thankful that they gave you feelings and memories that contributed to your life. Evaluate who you are and how you think as of right now and where you want it to take you. Start designing your life around who you are today and what you envision to come.
