I'll admit, i won't really fuck with Chris Brown's or Rihanna's music (unless Lil Wayne has cameos) but god-damn, chilling in their presence without having to resort to stalking or beating up their security guards was a pretty incredible occurrence. Her first words? "Do you have these in a size 8 and 11?"
I tried to act all cool like, "yeah, i'm pretty sure i can sort that out for you" but secretly, the sweat from my palms could have nourished an entire third world country. If we didn't have those particular sizes in stock, i was ready to sit out the back and make them for her with whatever i could scrape together. After about half an hour of giving the best customer service i will ever give in my life, Chris and Rihanna were ringing up their sales (what financial crisis?) when she pointed out how awesome my Super Nintendo chain/pendant combo was. I fainted inside but somehow managed to remain upstanding and replied "yeah, i had it specially made because video games are better than pretty much everything".
Chris was all about it as well and proceeded to pull the right sleeve of his jumper (Supreme, of course) up, revealing a tattoo of nothing less than the exact same Super Nintendo controller. The shock i felt was comparable to winning lotto and finding $50 on the same day. We shared a moment and it was at that point that i realised i should be more accepting of the things i don't particularly enjoy. Had you told me Chris Brown was a Super Nintendo nerd and a champion in general about three hours ago, i would have told you to shut your mouth because you're clearly 15 years old and female. It's funny how actually meeting people like that can affect you regardless of how you feel about their chosen career path. There was definately a sense of accomplishment and megastardom in the air once they walked into the shop and i'll admit right now that i happily brushed my somewhat biased opinions aside and as a result, i matured a little bit.
So from now on, i'm going to do my best to not hate on artists and celebrities whose artforms i might not agree with, but only if i personally meet the superstars themselves.
Here's my list of Superstars that i am now cool with and a list that still have to prove themselves.
Stars that i'm now cool with:
- Chris Brown
- Some guy from the Dandy Warhols.
- Sean Kingston
Stars that i'm still not cool with:
- Any that haven't personally given me praise.
C'mon Hollywood, my fanship is on a platter, show me that you deserve it.
